TV and Radio personality Chris Evans purchased the most expensive Ferrari ever sold at auction over the weekend. Evans spent nearly £5million on a black 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. The previous owner of the Ferrari was James Coburn.
The car was sold at auction at the second annual RM auctions’ "Ferrari Leggenda e Passione" event. The event was held in association with Sotheby’s and put some of the most desirable Ferraris and Maserati's ever made up for auction at the home of the Ferrari marquee.
Evans is a multi-millionaire and is reported to have quite the car collection. The auctioneer’s fee was reported to bring Evans total for the weekend to around £5.5million. Lots of money for sure, but a car like that will continue to appreciate in value.
