Is The Most Expensive Car in the World Hiding in Plain Sight?

The 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C remains one of the rarest and most desirable vehicles to ever come out of Maranello. Only three were produced and just one has a racing history. Being that vintage Ferraris with racing pedigree bring in a substantial amount of money at time of sale, it is quite possible that this 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C could nab a record-setting $100 million dollars. What makes this story so special is that the potentially most expensive car in the world can be found on display at a Florida flea market and not a museum or private collection. Car owner Preston Henn is known for his lavish collection of exotic cars that are proudly on display at each of his three Swap and Shop flea markets located in Fort Lauderdale. This has to be one of the least expected places for a car of this caliber to call home.

EXOTIC CARS

All three of the 275 GTB/C Speciales were based off of the 275 GTB road car and were designed by Pininfarina with Scaglieti built bodies. Each vehicle possesses aluminum body panels that are half the thickness of what was found on the standard production car. Other weight reduction techniques that were used included thinner chassis tubes that helped to lower the overall weight of the 275 GTB/C by 300 pounds. Each 275 GTB/C features a 3.3-liter V-12 engine with a dry-sump lubrication system that allows the engine to sit lower in the chassis. With a power output of 330 hp matched to an independent rear suspension and rear transaxle gearboxes, it is easy to understand why this racing legend was able to place 3rd at the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans.
