More than a decade after it was built, a Ferrari has finally been sold in Australia.
A $150 million sale is being done by the company behind the famous sports car, Ferrari Australia.
The car is currently being auctioned off by Australian billionaire Peter Grosvenor.
It was originally built by the Italian firm Maserati between 1960 and 1967.
It is the only car to win both the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 1980s and the 24 hours of LeMans in the 1990s.
In 2005, Ferrari sold it to British private equity firm OAK, which sold it back to the Italian company in the form of a four-car purchase.
Ferrari Australia president Tony Di Tommaso said the sale of the classic sports car to Australian investors had “taken Ferrari Australia back to its roots”.
“This is an amazing piece of history, and a symbol of Australian heritage,” Mr Di Tompaso told ABC News Breakfast.
The Ferrari sold for $160 million at auction in London in 2018. “
We’ve now seen how the world’s most powerful sports car can be brought to Australia.”
