In doing so, this particular car has just become the world’s most expensive car ever.

With a rich history that includes a competitive debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1963, where it finished fourth and a win in the Tour de France in 1964, it is no wonder the car can fetch such a mad price.

"Its period competition is very good. It won the Tour de France which is big tick and was fourth overall at Le Mans which was a mega result. It was raced by Ecurie Francorchamps, who are one of the most iconic and famous independent Ferrari teams, it has never had a big accident and it is highly original," Cottingham said.

Now owned by David MacNeil who also has a large collection of other classic Ferrari models, it is expected to grow in value and is likely to be worth more than S$133 million within the next five years.
