Schumacher Ferrari among 10 of the most expensive cars on sale in the UK

A Ferrari Enzo driven around the famous Nürburgring by Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher is among the multi-million-pound motors that are among the UK’s most expensive second-hand vehicles.

While most of us trawling the classified ads are looking for a bargain, Auto Trader has decided to let us see how the other half live by releasing a list of the 10 most expensive models for sale on its platform right now.

Among them are that Schumacher car, a £10 million Ferrari 250 GTO, a pair of special edition Bugattis and possibly the coolest Lamborghini ever built. 

Ferrari dominates the list, accounting for more than half of the top ten but there’s a single showing for British sports and supercar brand McLaren among the continental glitz and glamour.

Auto Trader also helpfully list a few of the other purchases you could make with you Lotto millions if none of these cars take your fancy. 

An Auto Trader spokesperson said, “Whilst this list isn’t accessible to all, it is fascinating to compare what you could get for the same price, or just use it to daydream about your fantasy cars.”

1. Ferrari 250 California Spyder

Topping the list at a dizzying £9,999,999 is the Ferrari 250 California Spyder, one of just 50 made in 1957. This particular model is the tenth California Spyder built and has just 115 miles on the clock. Not interested? How about using that cash for a mortgage on Dracula’s Castle in Romania (full value £86 million) or maybe buy two tonnes of European white truffles at £2,300 a pound.

 2. Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta

In second place at £3,999,830 is the Ferrari Laferrari Aperta, one of just 209 made. Described as one of the most sought after limited series Ferrari of all time, it is finished in Giallo Triplo Strato with a Nero Racing Stripe. For those tempted to take it for a test drive, just think of what else you could have for the same amount. A two-bedroom townhouse in Mayfair will set you back £3 million so you still have plenty of cash leftover to deck it out in style.

 3. McLaren P1 GTR

In third place is the McLaren P1 GTR at £3,000,000. A petrol/electric plug-in hybrid, this stunning supercar has a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged engine enabling it to reach 0-60 mph in under 2.8 seconds and soon after reaching a top speed of 225 mph.

 4. Lamborghini Miura

If you can’t quite make the £3 million mark, how about the Lamborghini Miura SV at £2,595,000? A classic 1972 model, it was first delivered new to the Saudi Royal Family and was eventually found underneath a hoard of cardboard boxes in a large warehouse owned by the family in 2005, with just 3,600 miles on the clock. And if you don’t want this Saudi special, you could instead spend your hard earned cash on a six month stay at the Royal Suite in the Lanesborough Hotel. At £14,000 a night, it includes a private kitchen, views of Wellington Arch, and even a personal butler.

 5. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse

Halfway down the list is the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse at £2,550,000. This amazing one off fully exposed carbon fibre Vitesse has covered only 2,200 miles, and is one of just a handful to boast a two-tone exterior in blue and black. It is fully upholstered in tangerine and dark blue hide with complimenting carbon fibre fascia. No word on whether the random horse in the photos comes as part of the deal.

 6. Ferrari LaFerrari

Number six is one of the most sought after hyper cars on the market today at 1 of just 499 made, the Ferrari LaFerrari 6.3 for £2,450,000. The LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s most ambitious project yet to push the boundaries of technology on a road car, drawing together the brand’s technical capabilities in both GT and Formula 1 engineering. For the same price, you could have Mary Berry’s old home in Penn, Buckinghamshire. The three-story, six-bedroom property boasts a large, open plan kitchen complete with the Aga she used to create some of her most famous recipes.

 7. Ferrari Enzo ‘Schumacher’

For number seven is the Ferrari Enzo ‘Schumacher’ at £2,250,000. This special Enzo was car number two off the production line and shown by the factory at Ferrari Racing Days, Nurburgring, Germany in August 2002, where it was driven by Ferrari F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher himself. If this doesn’t float your boat, how about buying two KFC franchises for the same price, complete with stock, staff and marketing. 

 8. Ferrari 288 GTO

In at number eight is the Ferrari 288 GTO for £1,999,950. This coupe has covered 42,000 miles, and accelerated from 0-60 mph in five seconds flat to a top speed of 189 mph, making it one of the fastest road legal cars of its era. Or you could buy your own luxury 3,000-square-feet property in the Turks And Caicos Islands with views over the Caribbean Sea.

 9. Bugatti Veyron Supersport

Coming in at number nine is the Bugatti Veyron Supersport at £1,850,000. With a polished black finish, blue brake calipers and black and burnt orange stitching for the interiors, it is easy to see why this beauty is in the top ten. But if you do fancy something else for the pocket money, you could try becoming a wine connoisseur and buying 20 bottles of the most expensive wine in the world, 1811 Chateau d’Yquem, at £94,000 a pop.

 10. Ferrari 250 GT Lusso

Finishing off the top ten is the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso for £1,800,000. The Ferrari Lusso, translated to English as ‘luxury’ was initially revealed at the Paris Motor Show in October 1962 and was instantly desired by celebrity petrolheads including Steve McQueen and Eric Clapton. For the price of this, you could buy your own castle in Scotland, with even enough left over to deck it out in style.
