Ferrari 250 GTO 1964 zee.psd
The Ferrari 250 GTO was one of the most famous racing cars ever made, and it is now one of the most valuable and sought-after supercars in the world. It was first launched in 1961 and it was a dazzling success on the race track, finishing second in the GT class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1962. The car was driven by racers including Olivier Giendebien, Phil Hill, and David Coulthard.
The 250 GTO had a low price, which justified its high value. The car was not covered in leather, but only on the front seats. It had no sound deadening and no heater. It had a tachometer, but there was no dashboard. The instrumentation was simple: the engine was mounted on the hood. A tachometer and speedometer shared the binnacle with smaller gauges.
The GTO's design was inspired by the Jaguar E-Type Low Drag Coupe and had a remarkably low hood. The front end was a brick, but its low set hood was not. The car resembled an E-Type from the front but was shaped by an Italian textile entrepreneur. The GTO's low hood made the car look even more like a sports car, and the Jaguar E-Type DP212 was also influenced by the GTO.
