Ferrari 250 GTO sells for $32million dollars

Another day, another Ferrari 250 GTO. Today we find news that one of  the erstwhile bedroom pin-ups has sold for £20.2 million, thus making it  the UK’s most expensive automotive sale.
This particular car, number 5095, is believed to have been sold by  British businessman Jon Hunt who bought the car in 2008 for a paltry  £15.7m. Jon Hunt, in case you wanted to know, is the man who founded -  and then sold - the Foxton’s estate agency.
The new owner will surely delight in that 3.0-litre V12, some 300bhp  and a 0-60mph time of around 6.1 seconds and top speed of 174mph. Or  somewhere near that, considering the price and rarity of the thing -  just 39 GTOs were built between 1962 and 1964, of which two now belong  to Chris Evans and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.
