If you have ever bought a WeatherTech floor mat for your car, you technically helped pay for the most expensive car ever sold.  Let us unpack this one for you......

Recently, a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO is believed to have been sold in a private sale for what would be a record $70M (some reports say it was up to $80M).  Let that price sink in just a bit.  Only 39 250 GTOs were produced but that price tops any other recently sold 250 GTO by many millions.

Where does your WeatherTech floor mat come into play?  Supposedly this GTO was purchased by David MacNeil, the CEO of WeatherTech.  Guess he's sold a few mats over the years!

Watch This:

If you aren't familiar with the 25 year simply means you can only import a car into the US that is 25 years or older.  Each year, "new" cars that have never set a tread on U.S. soil become eligible for import.  Which of these 10 would you want?  We'll take an Audi S2 and a Lancia Delta Integrale please!

We Want This:

How much would you pay for a 993 Porsche with only 5k original miles?  A dealer up in Washington State seems to have gotten their hands on a practically new 1996 993 and is asking $109,995 (why couldn't they have just called it $110k?).  We gotta ask ourselves though....what kind of person would own this beauty and only put 5k miles on it over 20+ years?

Check out the listing on the Pelican Parts forum.

Don't lose one of these behind the dryer:

Do you need some new socks?  Of course you do!  STRIIPE is a newly launched brand who is producing the World’s first high performance driving sock with color and graphics inspired by the art, community and heritage of motorsport.
