Five Of The Original 36 Ferrari 250 GTO Supercars

Five Of The Original 36 Ferrari 250 Gto Supercars In The Ferrari Classiche Department

The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the, if not the, most sort-after classic Ferrari and of the 36 originally produced, no less than five of them are under restoration simultaneously by Ferrari’s own heritage department, the Ferrari Classiche, demonstrating not just rapid growth of this business but also the level of trust placed in it by the owners of these highly valuable cars.

The Ferrari Classiche has just restarted restoration and certification of cars following its own renovation, enabling it to simultaneously restore 24 classic Ferraris, in a workshop dedicated to restoration, refurbishment and renewal.

And, of those 24 work bays, the Ferrari Classiche department is currently working on no fewer than five of the 36 250 GTOs built, along with two 250 Testa Rossas, including the 1957 car that Phil Hill drove to victory at the 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as three of the 32 250 LMs produced. Other significant cars include three short wheelbase 250 GT Berlinettas, a 1956 500 TR, and the 512 M that came 4th overall at the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans.
To date the Classiche department has completed over 60 full, ground-up restorations several of which have gone on to considerable success in international Concours d’Elegance and processed over 3800 authentication certification applications. The certification process is also available in Australia and New Zealand, with more than 20 Australian Ferraris and eight in New Zealand achieving full Ferrari certification as original cars in a process that is undertaken in Australia and New Zealand. In addition, thanks to the department’s exclusive access to the company’s original technical designs and moulds, Classiche has cast numerous new engine parts, including 25 new V12 cylinder blocks and a similar number of cylinder heads, to help restore cars to original specifications.

Thanks to the services offered by Ferrari Classiche, today Ferrari collectors have access to the most authoritative restoration expertise to return their cars to original factory condition and people planning to buy a classic Ferrari as assured by the certification programme that their planned purchase will be of a genuine car.
