The third of only three very special competition Berlinettas built for F.I.A.
homologation purposes in the GT racing class. These three cars had very lightweight aluminum bodywork,
bearing only a token resemblance to the production cars, built on lightweight frames designated type
563/Comp. Engine built to 250/275 LM specifications, designated as type 213/Comp., with compression
rations of 9.7 to 1, type 130 competition camshafts, a dry sump lubrication system and six Weber 40
DCN2 carburetors. This very limited series of Ferrari racing GT cars has often been referred to
as the 1965 250 GTO and should be “the car” to have for the Shell Challenge or any other
historic racing event. This car is the ultimate Ferrari GT race car addition to
any historic race team or Ferrari collection.
