Did you blow £10 million over the weekend? No, well if you had done just have a look at what you could have bought.

This Ferrari Testa Rossa went for a whopping $16.4m at auction in Pebble Beach, California, setting a new record for the world’s most expensive car in the process.

What makes this Testa Rossa so appealing is that it’s the original prototype for this iconic sporting car. The bloodline, so to speak, originated here.

Those still wondering why a car should go for so much cash money should be made aware that the Testa Rossa dominated sports car racing in the late 50s and early 60s, winning the Le Mans 24 Hour Race three times in the process.

A small price to pay for automobile history then.
