Back in February a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO has been sold for an amazing £20.2 million – or about $32 million at the current exchange rates. Now one Ferrari 250 GTO Series 1 unit has been listed at Anamera.com for an even more impressive $41 million.
Ferrari produced only 39 250 GTO units between 1962 and 1964 and it is being considered to be one of the greatest Ferrari models ever built. Most of the work has been made by Chief engineer Giotto Bizzarrini and designer Sergio Scaglietti whom have spent hours in the wind tunnels and on the race tracks perfecting the body of the GTO. The result was a top speed of 174 mph.
The model is powered by a 3.0-liter Colombo V12 engine used in the Test Rossa. This was an aluminum engine with magnesium cam covers, six 38 DCN Weber carburetors, and a dry sump oil system. The engine delivers a total of 300 horsepower and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds.
