The Ferrari 250 GTO is the most valuable car in the world. The few that have been sold at auction bring tens of millions of dollars and they escalate in value each time one of the rare machines is sold. Those are the purebred machines that are either what we would call survivors or restored examples. This car is not exactly one of those. It is a machine that uses all Ferrari parts, was actually brought to life in Turin, Italy, and has a price tag of close to a million bucks but it is not the perfection that the other cars of this type are.
From the best we can gather, it seems like someone got hold of a wrecked chassis, hunted the right engine and driveline parts, along with the suspension and all, and had this car put together. The ad has some weird wording in it like, “As a chassis, an original 250GT/E was used, which was delivered in 1963.” We’re not 100% sure about what that means specifically but we do know that the car was “reconstructed” in Italy all the way back in 1987.
We are not taking a thing away from this machine. It is incredible in its fit and finish and frankly it will deliver the owner a Ferrari 250 driving experience at 1/30th the price (or less!).
What do you think? Cool because it is all Ferrari and the seller is up front? Not worth the million bucks because it is not an OG factory car? Tell us!
