Seeing Red at the Petersen Automotive Museum

Although the Keith Haring exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum was stunning, it was easily trumped by the recent "Seeing Red" exhibit, displaying the best of the museum's Ferrari collection. As you may have guessed, all of the vehicles were in Ferrari's trademark red paint. The center of the room featured a large screen to watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, but the crown jewel of the Petersen's collection was only a few feet away: A 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO. When you sit it in person, you instantly realize why it is the most expensive car ever sold. It is absolutely majestic. See for yourself below, in addition to numerous other red beauties. There are also two bonus non-Ferrari photos at the end.
