The Ferrari 250 GTO is a grand tourer produced by Ferrari from 1962 to 1964 for homologation into the FIA's Group 3 Grand Touring Car category. It was powered by Ferrari's Tipo 168/62 Colombo V12 engine. The "250" in its name denotes the displacement in cubic centimetres of each of its cylinders; "GTO" stands for Gran Turismo Omologato, Italian for "Grand Touring Homologated". Just 36 of the 250 GTOs were manufactured between 1962 and 1964. This includes 33 cars with 1962-63 bodywork (Series I) and three with 1964 (Series II) bodywork similar to the Ferrari 250 LM. Four of the older 1962-1963 (Series I) cars were updated in 1964 with Series II bodies.

This stunning Ferrari 250 GTO recreation was completed in the 1980s by well known Ferrari builder Giovanni Giordanengo. The donor vehicle was a 1961 250 GTE originally delivered new to the UK and it features the following specification:

  • Based on the ex-Pilkington GTO, chassis 3527
