A 1962 Ferrari GTO will be coming up for auction. The expected sale price is $60 million. The only factory-owned Series I GTO raced by the Scuderia Ferrari team, the car in question is one of just 34 models produced.

I have read that anywhere between 32 and 39 were built, depending on the semantics:

Some cool semantics in this "330 LM" - Pontiac will suffice for now, though!

This twisted hunk of metal that used to be a Ferrari just sold for nearly $2 million. One of only 13 made, this 1954 Ferrari Mondial Spider Series I wasn’t one of Ferrari’s fabled V12 models but an entirely different design. The four-cylinder car was designed for driving on twisting tracks with lots of curves and few straightaways, where a smaller, lighter engine was desirable.

This is what the car looked like before it crashed and burned:
