The 250 GTO from the 1960s exerts a very special fascination on Ferrari fans. With it, the Scuderia succeeded in creating the racing car of the century, which still enjoys cult status today – because of its many sporting successes as well as its timeless elegance.
Sold new to David Piper, a racing driver of Great Britain, in 1963, this right-hand-drive
250 GTO was finished in the bright BP racing green. Piper raced the car with
considerable success in many locations, including Mallory Park, Silverstone, Brands
Hatch, Daytona, and Monza, etc. Over the winter of 1963/64, he had chassis 4491
modified with a cut-down windscreen and a re-profiled roof. The car changed hands
several times subsequently until 1981, when its current Italian owner had it restored
to its original configuration, removing Piper’s modifications.
The vehicle presented by CMC was raced in Silverstone on July 20th, 1963, finishing
2nd OA and 2nd in GT Class. Further achievements include 4th OA in Monza and 1st
OA in Kyalami, to name just a few.
