Ferrari 250 GTO Car Kit

The 250 GTO, still regarded as one of the finest of all Ferraris, was designed with the primary aim of suitability for private use, but at the same time for winning races in the three-litre class. The Gran Turismo body shape was aerodynamically optimised and resulted in a perfect combination of suitability for purpose and beauty. The front of the 250 GTO was particularly attractive, due to the three cooling vents for the 2953 cc engine.

The 250 stood for the capacity of one of the 12 engine cylinders, the O for omologato (= type approved) and the FIA approval for races in the GT class. The GTO was shown for the first time in 1962. Thanks to its 300 hp engine and good aerodynamics, it achieved a speed of about 280 km-h with acceleration from 0 to 100 in just 5.6 seconds. For three whole years (1962, 1963 and 1964) the GTO dominated its racing class in inimitable style.
