The Seattle-area wireless pioneer Craig McCaw and his brother Bruce have amassed a collection that, according to reports, peaked at more than 400 cars. In recent years, reports say, they have pared down the collection to focus on world-class examples, including those of significant postwar competition cars.
A highlight of the collection is the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO that Craig acquired in 2012 for $35 million—at the time, the most expensive automobile purchase ever recorded. Stirling Moss was the car’s original owner, but he never raced it. Instead, it competed in the 1962 24 Hours of Le Mans with Innes Ireland and Masten Gregory behind the wheel. The light-green Ferrari was a familiar sight at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it was driven by its previous owner.
