Un Ferrari es subastado por más de 12 millones de dólares

Más que fan de los autos - no tengo uno, y eso me hace muy feliz en la Ciudad de México - lo soy del diseño industrial. Y ayer fue subastada una joya: un Ferrari 250 Testa Rosa de 1957. Y la venta logró un récord, como el auto más caro vendido en subasta. Copio del NYT:

MARANELLO, Italy — A black 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa sold here Sunday for $12,402,500, setting a new record for the highest sale price at a public auction.

“The car set a new auction world record as the most expensive motor car ever to be sold at auction,” said Amy Christie, a spokeswoman for RM Auctions, which conducted the third annual Ferrari Leggenda e Passione sale.

The immaculate machine actually sold for a “hammer price” of €8.2 million. But with a buyer’s premium of 10 percent, the official sale price was €9.02 million — or $12,402,500 at current exchange rates, Ms. Christie added.

The price was €1.98 million higher than the previous auction record, which was set at the same sale last year. The record previous to that, for those keeping score, was set at the 2007 edition of this Ferrari-sanctioned event.

Fears that a worldwide recession might negatively affect the high-flying world of collector car prices — at least as they relate to Ferraris — proved mostly unfounded. Although several vehicles offered for sale failed to meet reserve prices, many did sell — and at strong prices.
