Many elements in the Periodic Tables are rare metals like gold, silver, and platinum. There is one that is the rarest of all… “Unobtainium”, also known as a 1963 Series 1, Ferrari 250 GTO, arguably the world’s most important car and a timeless masterpiece.
It’s the Holy Grail of automobiles, sought after by the world’s wealthiest investors, and claiming a pedigree unmatched in the annals of automotive history. With 39, 250 GTO’s in existence, only a fortunate few can lay claim to ownership. To call that club, “exclusive”, is an understatement by any measure.
According to Carbuzz, 250 GTO Series 1 chassis number 4153 GT was sold privately to WeatherTech CEO David MacNeil recently for more than $80 million US. Renowned Ferrari expert, Marcel Massini, estimates one will sell for $100 million within the next 5 years.
With the extraordinary demand these cars enjoy, it’s rare to find an owner willing to part with such a historic piece of automotive art. Appreciation by discerning collectors has driven prices well above those of any other car in the world.
250 GTO’s are owned by captains of industry, royalty, and a handful of other billionaires around the globe. It’s a small ownership club with a barrier to entry unlike any other. If you’ve ever considered investing in one and begun due diligence, you know the pitfalls associated with the process.
Buyer’s mandates, seller’s mandates, non-disclosure agreements, letters-of-intent, proof-of-funds, contract negotiations, commission pools, escrow accounts, pre-purchase inspections, documentation of provenance, Ferrari Classiche (“Red Book”) certification, etc. are all part of the process. Without an intimate knowledge of the procedures required, efforts to attain one typically result in a frustrating, unproductive waste of time.
Our private treaty sales process insures a successful purchase outcome. Both parties to the transaction are fully protected and maintain anonymity. Only principals in the transaction, and their respective attorneys, have access to confidential information, protecting the identities of the parties, the chassis number of the car being sold, and terms and conditions of the sale.
In short, we make sure the work is complete, due diligence is done and the car is fully vetted, the serial number of the car is protected, the transaction is organized discretely, and both buyer and seller remain anonymous.
If you are considering an investment in a 250 GTO, please know we have one of the most desirable Series 1, 250 GTO’s in the world available. (Note that the one pictured is not the car for sale.) We are happy to provide a full dossier on the car we have available, once terms and conditions are met.
We know you have many questions about GTO ownership, and the process of acquiring one. Please reach out to me personally via email, [email protected], or my direct number 817-247-1981.
Obviously, “Unobtanium” isn’t real, but the opportunity to own a Series 1, 250 GTO is.
