Ferraris Sold at Arizona Auctions for More Than $8 Million -- Millions More Than the Batmobile

Remember that original Batmobile that was sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale over the weekend for more than $4.6 million?

Forget about that, because two Ferrari were sold for more than $8 million each at two different, smaller, Valley auctions this weekend.

RM Auctions reports back today that a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta sold for $8,140,000, and says it's a world record for that specific model.

Gooding & Company also sold an $8 million Ferrari this weekend -- a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider was sold at its Scottsdale auction for $8,250,000.

Cars from Ferrari's 250 series tend to be a bit expensive nowadays -- in case you couldn't tell already -- like the Ferrari 250 GTO that sold for about $35 million last year.
