TThe Ferrari 250 GTO was introduced in 1962 as the ultimate expression of the Ferrari 250 GT. It was equally at home on the road or track and achieved legendary status among Ferrari's aficionados.
Debuted at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1962, the car dominated the world sports car championships and won the World Manufacturer's Championship three years in a row: 1962, 1963 and 1964. It is not only an exceptionally capable racing car, but also one of the most beautiful shapes ever to grace a Ferrari chassis. With a relatively small production of thirty-six cars, it has become one of the icons of Ferrari production history, with a revered position in collector's circles.
At the beginning of the movie Vanilla Sky, the character David Aames drives a dark blue Ferrari 250 GTO through the deserted blocks of New York City. Autumnal multicolored leaves litter Central Park, and the glass facades of the buildings reflect the darkly painted silhouette of the classic racing car, before it stops in the middle of an abandoned Times Square. It's an unforgettable classic moment for a classic vehicle!
