The original model was produced in a limited edition of 36 units between 1962 and 1964.
Then the coupe cost about 18 thousand dollars, and over half a century the price jumped to tens of millions.
In 2018, one of the 36 cars was auctioned for a then-record auction price of $48.4 million.
A little later, another car was purchased privately for $80 million.
