Ferrari’s 250 GTO is the most desired and invaluable car in the world, it is surrounded with controversy and myth. Many a man will repeatedly argue that the best car in the world is Ferrari 250 GTO.
For all of these reasons, the GTO is the most cherished and expensive cars. As a matter of fact, chassis 3729GT had received a high bid of 9 million dollars at the 1997 Bonhams’ Gstaad Auction. Earlier in the 1990s, when the prices for exquisite and classic cars were at a crazy pitch, an example sold for $15,000,000.
The 250 GTO was designed to be driven in GT racing. The Ferrari 250 GTO is a twin purpose car. These cars that are designed for both the street and race track. In this tradition, a proud owner could drive the car to the race track, race it, and then drive it back home.
The largely admired body was a result from work done by Bizzarini and Scaglietti and exactly perfected in wind tunnel and track testing. Unlike most other Ferraris, it was not designed by a specific person or design house. The very 1st Ferrari 250 GTO was completed in 1962, having a body designed in-house and later revised by Scaglietti. In late 1963 steps were taken to improve the car, which included an all-new, Pininfarina-designed body. The car debuted at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1962.
The 3 litre(180 cubic inches) engine was a modification of the Gioacchino Colombo short-block designed V12. Continuously progressed from then on, this rather superior engine would drive many racers and road cars. The engine was cozied up in a simple but strong steel tubular frame that is suspended by wishbone suspension on a single leaf spring at the front and also a live axle at the rear.
