The following text is from the article linked above:

 

#7 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa – $16.4 Million

#6 – 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider – $18.5 Million

#5 - 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale – $26.4 Million

#4 – 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 S NART Spider – $27.7 Million

#3 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 – $29.6 Million

#2 and #3 Battle It Out..

 

For the number two and number one spots, there is a dispute depending on if you are looking at the value in dollars or euros. The U.S. dollar and European euro exchange rates from the two different sales, in two different years have muddied the water a bit.

 

1962 – 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta in 2014 Bonham Collection Pebble Beach Auctions U.S. dollars $38.1 million European euros €28.5 million

 

1957 Ferrari 315 335 S Scaglietti Spyder 2016 Bardinon Collection Artcurial auction house U.S. dollars $35.7 million $European euros €35.072 million

 

In Bardinon’s press release, the company stated in euros they had marked a world record at car auction for the car that had raced in world-renowned races such as the Le Mans among others.

 

Essentially, with the dollar still being stronger than the euro it puts the 1962 – 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta in the number one spot, sort of. However, measured in euros only, the 1957 Ferrari 315 335 S Scaglietti Spyder is the reigning champion… for the moment.
