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.
Finished in BP racing green, chassis 3767GT was originally owned and raced by David
Piper, a racing driver who had competed in Formula One and Formula Two, but was
disenchanted with single-seat racing and decided to move into sportscar racing with
250 GTO in 1962. Late that year, he scored outright wins at the Kyalami 9 Hours and
the Angolan Grand Prix. At the onset of the following season, this car was sold to the
United States, although Piper continued to co-drive with new owner Ed Cantrell on
occasion. Following the 1964 Nassau speed week, it was retired from contemporary
racing and came to be acquired by the current owner in 1974. In more recent years, it
has been a regular in the Goodwood Revival. CMC replicated this right-hand-drive
250 GTO with a distinctive BP livery.
This is what Chassis 3767GT looked like when David Piper and Dan Margulies raced it
with start number #153 to a 4th OA finish at Tour de France on September 15, 1962.
