Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Celebrated the 55th Anni of the 250 GTO in Tuscany
This past weekend more than 50% of the Ferrari 250 GTOs produced assembled in Tuscany.
As one of Ferrari‘s most legendary and famous models ever produced, the 250 GTO is celebrating its 55th Anniversary the same time Ferrari is celebrating its 70th.
Produced from Ys 1962 to 1964, just 39 examples including prototypes were built, and they are some of the most expensive collector’s cars to be sold at public auction.
So for its 55th birthday, the Italian automaker hosted the Ferrari GTO Rally, where 20 Ferrari GTOs assembled in Italy.
The rally saw the rare sports cars driving through Tuscany, starting in Florence and crossing the Hills of Chianti.
And since the 250 GTO was built for homologation into the FIA’s Group 3 Grand Touring Car category, it was fitting that the event made a stop at the Mugello circuit and motored the track
Afterwards, the rally paraded on the Fiorano track before returning home to the Maranello plant.
Have a terrific week.
