Sources say the winning bidder of the 1957 Ferrari 335 Sport Scaglietti that sold in Paris at an Artcurial Motorcars auction went for $35.7 million.
The new owner already has an enviable Ferrari collection — helped by the fact that he also owns a Ferrari dealership in Vancouver, British Columbia. Experts say he has about a dozen of the prized “prancing horse” brand cars in the plush garage of his home in Cortland.
His reported purchase of the 1957 335 S would mean he is now in possession of the most expensive car ever sold at auction. The final sale price with commission fees was nearly $36 million.
