Chris Evans Rounds Out his Collection

It was only a year ago that the UK radio personality grabbed headlines when he was the top bidder on the ex-James Coburn 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder. The car captured the imagination of the sportscar collecting world both for it’s gorgeous lines and for the astronomical sum that the car commanded. Now it looks like Evans is again the envy of the Ferrari world by picking up the ultimate.

This photo that Evans posted on his Twitter feed lets the world know that he’s the purchaser of 1963 Ferrari GTO chassis #4675. The car was sold via private treaty by RM Auctions in the past few days, which led to wide speculation both over the purchaser and the amount paid. None of you will be surprised to learn that GTO ownership is an exclusive club indeed—not only are the cars incredibly rare and incredibly expensive, but once one is in hand the owner rarely parts with it. I’ll fight my seething jealousy just long enough to congratulate Mr. Evans on his admission to the club.

Sports Car Market has more details on 4675.

    He’s been moving up lately.. I only hope he keeps the cars in their original colors this time around.

    That being said, this is my least favorite GTO. Unique, but I much prefer the first body style. She wouldn’t get kicked out of bed for eating crackers though. 😉
