What makes Ferrari 250 GTO so unique? Was its look or its rarity? Or it was the racing pedigree and its mechanics. Whatever it is, and we are sure it is a combination more significant than the sum of its parts”.

This Ferrari 250 GTO art is playing with all of our emotions
This particular Ferrari art is telling the story of a racing machine which later turned to be an investment asset and a subject of worship. Built-in minimal numbers, just 39 ever made, this Ferrari was destined for GT racing. It was aimed against Shelby Cobra and Jaguar E-Type and was a project with too many fathers. Although Giotto Bizzarrini is credited as the designer of the 250 GTO, after he was fired by Enzo Ferrari, the project was overseen by Mauro Forghieri, who worked along with Sergio Scaglietti for the body development.
From a technical point of view, the 250 GTO wasn’t an advanced car. Its chassis was largely built on that of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB, while the engine was already proven in the Le Mans-winning Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. The aerodynamics was the area where 250 GTO was truly advanced due to efforts of Scaglietti.
Today, Ferrari 250 GTO is symbolising both money and status. Only 33 exist today, and they are among the most expensive cars in the world with the record-breaking $52 M price tag reached in 2013 auction. Think of it like Mona Lisa of all vehicles. Ralph Lauren owns one, just like Nick Mason, the Pink Floyd drummer.
