The 250 GTO is a beautiful Ferrari. It has an aggressive 1960's styling. The 250 GTO has a body design for better aerodynamics. A rounded fastback design and a lowered, curved hood line helped the car move through the air more efficiently. The car also had improved weight distribution for better handling. It is a sight to behold.
The Ferrari 250 GTO is powered by a 3.0L V12, paired with a five-speed manual transmission, that produces 302 hp and 217 lb-ft of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 173.4 mph. This is extremely fast by 1960s standards.
The 250 GTO has been featured in Top Gear Series 16, Episode 2, when Jeremy Clarkson was reviewing the Ferrari 599 GTO. It has also been featured in Goodwood: Race Cars Legends, Mischief Assault, Archer, Man, Moment, Machine, The Legendary Sports Cars, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Ferrari, and The Rockford Files.

The Ferrari 250 GTO has a lot of history behind it. It is one of the most desired cars of all times. It is rare, fast, and historical. People have been paying over $20 millions just to get one. This is not a car for the road. It is too rare and valuable to risk being damaged in accidents or being struck by random objects. This is an amazing machine, but its value makes it only good as a trailer queen. These are museum cars and Concours d'Elegance cars. Motor Trends Classic named the Ferrari GTO the Greatest Ferrari of All Time. The Ferrari 250 GTO was the first Ferrari V12 supercar and led the way for the Ferrari F40, Enzo, 288 GTO and 599 GTO. The 250 GTO is one of the all time greats and should be in any serious car collection if he or she has the money. This car is rare and extremely expensive.
