The Ferrari 250 GTO is considered by many to be the greatest stallion that the Italian automaker has ever manufactured. In order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the birth of this model, more than twenty Ferrari 250 GTO will take to the show field of the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 21.
Ferrari only made 36 250 GTO models, along with two 330 GTOs with larger engines. All of these models have been invited to the Concours and more than half have already accepted the invitation. Some of these exclusive GTO models have sold for as much as $30 million in recent years.
“The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the great sports racing cars of all time,” said Ed Gilbertson, Chief Judge of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. “The GTO beat everything in the world for about three years running, which is quite an accomplishment when you consider the marques that were racing at that time.”
