A rare Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider was sold at Gooding & Company auction for $18,045,000. Not only the price itself is impressive, but also its growth since the purchase, because in 1972 the current owners bought the car for $ 2,400 (adjusted for inflation, 17.7 thousand).

This copy was released in 1962, in 1970 he got into an accident. The body was not damaged, but the owner decided that there was no point in repairing the chassis, and sold the car as is. Charles Betz and Fred Peters bought it from the landfill and restored it to factory condition by the year 2000.
