“The NART Spyder is a very special car,” dealer John Collins said of the vehicle. “They’re so rare. They’re among the most beautiful of all Ferraris.
One of only 10 ever made, the Ferrari started at $10 million before eager bidders pushed it above the $20 million mark.
Former owner Eddie Smith Jr., whose father purchased the car in 1968, said proceeds from the sale would go to various charities.
Smith has been keeping the precious car in an airplane hangar since his father died, and said he hoped it would go to someone who could appreciate it.
"What really moved me was seeing people walk up to the car -- Ferrari owners even, who had never seen one -- and be moved almost to tears." Smith said.
