To the person (or persons) holding the golden ticket to the $640 million Megamillions Lottery jackpot: here’s a way for you to spend the money.
Last month, a special Ferrari 250 GTO sold for a record $31.8 million US dollars, making it the most valuable Ferrari in the world. Now, imagine a parade full of valuable classic Ferrari GTOs traveling at speed in two lane back roads.
The following video beautifully captures the sights and sounds as a convoy of fire breathing Italian red heads travel along to the annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. What’s more, feast your eyes on other rare metals present at the venue as well.

Arguably the most prestigious of all concours, the annual Pebble Beach show has grown considerably since its semi-humble beginnings back in 1950 when 30 cars were displayed at what was then the Del Monte Lodge. Fast forward 61 years and over 200 cars (and even a few motorcycles) are on display, all vying for the prestigious Best of Show prize.
Dante Rubli is an artist based out of Bern, Switzerland and has been producing various works of art for over 25 years. His Iconic Sports Car series features sculptures of an Aston Martin DBS, Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing and will soon also include the Ferrari 250 GTO, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach. Each vehicle in the Iconic Sports Car series comes in three different scales with the option of traditional gold, white gold, silver, and other luxury finishes available.
The Ferrari 250 GTO is considered by many to be the greatest Ferraris ever produced. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of this model, more than twenty pristine Ferrari 250 GTOs will be showcased at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The car show will be held on Sunday, August 21. Only 36 250 GTOs were originally produced. All of these exclusive cars have been invited to the Concours and more than half have already accepted the invitation. GTOs have been sold for as much as $30 million in recent years.
Thanks to our friends at Luxury4Play.com we have a nice collection of photos from the ultra-exclusive invite-only 45th Anniversary celebration of the Ferrari 250 GTO. The event was held by those champagne gurus at Moët & Chandon at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. Apparently the event was so exclusive that being a Ferrari owner didn’t automatically mean you got an invite. Only the “best customers” of the Parncing Horse were allowed to gander on this gathering of 250 GTOs.
