The Mona Lisa of classic cars, Ferrari 250 GTO is appearing once again as genuine Fine.Car.Art at Simply Petrol`s gallery, which of course, is full of excellent 250 GTO poster art. This time, our special guest is chassis number #3387GT Berlineta. It was the second Ferrari 250 GTO that was built at Maranello and was used by Scuderia Ferrari as test bed at Monza. Sure, after proper refinement chassis #3387 was sold to Luigi Chinetti Motors in New York.
The certificate of origin was issued on March, 16th 1962 and just a single week later it finished second overall and first in class at Sebring, driven by Phill Hill and Olivier Genadebien. As any of these beauties, the history of Ferrari 250 GTO #3387 is documented very well. Right after its impressive inaugural competition, Chinetti Motors sold the car to Robert Grossman with Le Mans preparation on the go. Under the new ownership, the car finished 6th overall and 3rd in class in `62 Le Mans with Bob Grossman and George Roberts Jr. behind the wheel.
Then #3387 lost its original metallic blue paint in favor of classic Ferrari red, even though the racing stripes were kept. Due to its early release, the second 250 GTO experienced some modifications including the addition of front brake ducts, blinkers relocation to fender and gas filler movement, just like the later examples.
“Ferrari 250 GTO is the definitive Grand Touring automobiles of the 60s … or, some might well argue, of all time.”
As of today /June, 2018/ chassis #3387 is looking for its new owner trough the services of Ferrari experts of Talacrest. Meanwhile, another 250 GTO smashed heavily the most expensive classic car record with price tag of $70 million, paid by American collector.
If you want to share space and enjoy the eternal beauty of this car, our Ferrari 250 GTO #3387 art is emitting dynamism, piece of mystery and the classic elegance of its silhouette. Skillfully created by Artem Halko and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.
