Every Ferrari is special, but the Ferrari 250 GTO is perhaps the most special of them all. Built in limited numbers as a road car to homologate (“omologato”) its racing variant, the “Series II” GTO is a slight revision to the first GTOs. The biggest change is the addition of the sensual body, designed by the famed Pininfarina styling house, with dramatic buttresses aft of the rear window and a sextet of side vents piercing the curved flanks. Under the pointed hood blister is the famous Giacchino Colombo-designed 3-liter V12, derived from the racing 250 Testa Rossa. It was also the last and most highly-developed of a long line of Ferrari 250 racers, and one of the rarest. Only three were built, so only the lucky few have seen a Series II 250 GTO, and fewer still have driven it. Consider that as you admire the gleaming GTO in your garage or out on the track.
