A Bittersweet Moment For Family Selling An Extremely Rare Vehicle The car was the highlight of an evening that saw many vehicles auctioned off, but which were unable to match up to the excitement surrounding the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T Spyder.

 

An extremely rare Ferrari -one of only ten ever made in fact- sold at auction on August 17 for a staggering $27.5 million (including commission). The car was the highlight of an evening that saw many vehicles auctioned off, but which were unable to match up to the excitement surrounding the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T Spyder.

“This is a bittersweet moment for us,” owner Eddie Smith Jr. told a packed crowd before the bidding started. “Ferraris came and went, but this one never went,  thank God. We enjoyed it as a family for 45 years.”

 

The car was originally owned by Eddie Smith Sr., who took delivery of it in North Carolina in 1968.

 

The winning bid for the vehicle came from Lawrence Stroll, a Canadian fashion entrepreneur, according to Bloomberg. After a successful sale, the Smith family has said they will be donating every dollar earned to charity.
