Description

This Ferrari 250 GTO art is capturing one of the most iconic Ferrari cars ever created during its run at 1964 Targa Florio. The story of blue-yellow 250 GTO is more than interesting and we are more than happy to let you know this car is existing in a fully restored condition with its stunning livery.

This car was born as chassis #3445 GT. Its first owner was the Bologna-based Italian publisher Luciano Conti. He got his delivery in 1962 and sold the car later that year, after its maiden competition, the Bologna – Passo della Raticosa. The new owner of #3445 GT chassis became Count Giovanni Volpi di Misurata, a noble man with a racing passion. His team competed under the insignia of Venice Republic. During this stint of the car, the Ferrari 250 GTO won the Trophee d`Auvergne with Carlo Maria Abate behind the steering wheel.

Ferrari 250 GTO-Targa Florio-1964

Ulf Norinder from Sweden bought the car in April 1963. Due to the regulations of the day, he changed its color from red to blue-yellow livery, matching the colors of the Sweden flag. Norinder managed to win a track event in Vastkustloppet, Sweden. It finished second in the class twice in the Targa Florio of 1963 and 1964. It entered the latter competition with starting number 112 which the car bears today.

The chassis #3445 GT Ferrari 250 GTO changed its owners several times before its current owner, the American billionaire Chris Cox restored it with the help of Ferrari Classic division. Unfortunately he crashed his car into a Hyundai during Le Mans Classic competition and it was immediately sent back to Ferrari Classic for repairing.
