Ferrari 250 GTO

A rare 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO, described by mane as the most sort-after Ferrari in the world, has been sold privately by RM Auctions.

The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of only thirty-six originally produced and one of a limited few with Series II GTO bodywork. In April 1963, 4675 GT left the factory finished in Rosso Cina.

It was raced by such drivers as Guido Fossati, Jean Guichet, Oddone Sigala, Vincenzo Nember and Luigi Taramazzo and proved itself a tremendously capable racing car, rarely finishing outside the top three in its class and achieving numerous race wins.

In addition to being considered one of the most beautiful cars ever built by Ferrari, the GTO, with 302 bhp @ 7500rpm and a top speed of 174 mph, was tremendously successful in competition, securing multiple World Championships for the Modenese car builder.
