Some records are made to be broken. Just months after a rare Ferrari GTO sold in Europe for a record-breaking $32 million, word comes that an apple green Ferrari 250 GTO from 1962 has topped it, selling for $35 million.The auto, which was built for race car driver Stirling Moss, changed hands last month, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Coincidentally, the buyer was mobile phone industry tycoon (and classic car collector) Craig McCaw, who just listed his private island off the coast of Vancouver for a whopping $75 million.

The seller was Dutch-born businessman Eric Heerema, owner of the Nyetimber vineyard in southern England, who acquired it a decade ago for $8.4 million, according to Bloomberg.

The Ferrari is one of just 39 GTOs made between 1962 and 1964.
