A genuine homologation treasure, under 40 were created amid the 1960s and today, on the off chance that one was made available for purchase, the value you’ll be paying ventures into tens of millions of dollars. Enter the Ferrari 250 GTO
A 250 GTO was the recipient of the highest ever offer for a vehicle at auction almost 4 years ago, with the offer being a whopping $38 million. That isn’t the most noteworthy cost paid for a 250 GTO. The most significant price, at least in any event known to the general population, is the $52 million exchanged in 2013.
This marvels buzz hasn’t gone unnoted by Ferrari, which is now thinking about taking advantage of it. Talking with Top Gear magazine amid the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, Ferrari Chairman Sergio Marchionne said that something along the lines of a 250 GTO continuation vehicle was being arranged.
“The answer is yes but I struggle with the term ‘continuation’ car,” Marchionne said when asked about tell of a 250 GTO continuation car.
Continuation vehicles are when producers assemble extra makes of a prior model to the exact and correct specs and details of the first. Normally, the new autos’ VINs proceed from where the first autos’ VINs finished, henceforth the reason they’re alluded to as “continuation” cars.
As of late, Jaguar has discovered extraordinary accomplishment with continuation adaptations of its 1957 XKSS and 1963 Lightweight E-Type. Be that as it may, to maintain some credibility, Jaguar utilized original VINs from cars that were either executed before being finished or plans were made for, but never manufactured. The credibility concern is a problem that Marchionne is very much aware of.
“What Jaguar has done with the Lightweight [E-Type] cars is clever, but reinventing the 250 is a tough gig, and living off the spoils of the past is a bad habit to get into,” he said.
By and by, Ferrari, or all the more particularly the Ferrari Classiche division, is unquestionably chipping away at something. Marchionne indicated that we could see the outcomes in the coming years.
“There’s definitely a platform there, and hopefully we can show you something in the next few years,” he said.
