The 5 most expensive collectable cars

We all love to fantasise about living the high life, filled with the intoxicating scent of refined leather and the growl of mighty engines. But for some lucky souls, this dream is their everyday reality. Today, we’re zooming into the luxurious world of the most expensive collectable cars. So, fasten your seatbelts because these numbers will definitely make your head spin!

  1. A whopping price tag for a classic: 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO

First on our list is the sizzling 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, once auctioned for a staggering R685 million. ‘GTO’ stands for ‘Gran Turismo Omologato’ but we suspect it secretly means ‘Goodness, that’s overpriced’! This rare gem is a genuine testimony to automotive art, justifying its hefty price tag.


  1. The ultra-rare stunner: 1957 Ferrari 335S

Next up is the breathtaking 1957 Ferrari 335S, auctioned at a sky-high R588 million. Only 4 of them exist in the world, making this beauty rarer than a chicken’s molar! Besides, nothing says ‘snazzy’ quite like a vintage Ferrari.


  1. The elegant speedster: 1956 Aston Martin DBR1

In third place, we have the glamorous 1956 Aston Martin DBR1, fetching a solid R342 million. Famously associated with Bond, James Bond, this machine was designed for style and serious speed. Licence to thrill, anyone?


  1. Not your regular ride: 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T Spider

The fourth spot goes to the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T Spider, selling for a cool R274 million. N.A.R.T stands for North American Racing Team, but we think it should mean ‘Not a regular transaction’… Because how often do you casually drop a quarter of a billion Rand on a car?


  1. The blue sapphire of cars: 1935 Bugatti Type 57S Atlantic

The iconic 1935 Bugatti Type 57S Atlantic takes fifth place. This classic piece was exchanged for an estimated R250 million. With only 4 originally made, and 2 surviving, it’s like the blue sapphire of the car world!

It’s mind-blowing to think these cars cost more than some small countries’ GDP! But remember, with great value comes great responsibility. That’s where King Price’s collectable car insurance swoops in to save the day. We’re passionate about preserving precious relics of the past and protecting them from the risks of the future.
