The Ferrari 250 GTO (Gran Turismo Omologato) grew out of the 250 GT series into a
competition car in the Gran Turismo category. A road-legal race car was born, enabling the drivers to travel to their races on their own. The basis for the 

250 GTO was the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB model. The 250 stands for
displacement in cubic centimeters per cylinder. Ferrari presented the vehicle for the
first time at the annual press conference in January 1962 in Maranello.

The development of the GTO was conducted under Giotto Bizzarrini and took shape
at the coach-builder Scaglietti, where almost all GTOs were later built. What was
new in comparison with the 250 GT Berlinetta “SWB” was the completely
redesigned front end. The rear fenders got wider and longer, as did the rear
end. In contrast to the first prototype, all later examples received a riveted rear spoiler, which was an aerodynamic innovation at the time. So much effort had never been put into the aerodynamics of a GT racing car.

The rear rigid axle of the 250 GT Berlinetta “SWB” was retained, but mounted on
parallel trailing arms and a Watt linkage instead of leaf springs. The proven Tipo
168/62 3.0 L V12 from the 250 Testa Rossa was carried over. The interior of the 250
GTO is extremely spartan – an entailment resulting from its low weight, which, in conjunction with an output of virtually 300 hp and low air resistance, makes the GTO capable of up to 280 km/h.

The accolades of the 250 GTO were impressive, there were victories at the 12 Hours
of Sebring, the Targa-Florio, the 1000 km of Spa-Francorchamps and at Le Mans,
where they also finished second OA in 1962 and 1963 and won the GT classification.

Italian privateer racer Sergio Bettoja was the first owner of this 250 GTO. He debuted it at the Parma-Poggio hill-climb in June, 1962. He then sold the car to Count Volpi, who promptly fielded it at Le Mans. In April, 1963, chassis 3445GT was sold to Ulf Norinder, who had it painted in the Swedish national racing colors (blue with a yellow central stripe) and campaigned it with some success well into the 1964 season at Targa Florio, 2000 km Daytona, 500km Spa and Monza. From 1965 onwards, the car passed through various hands until 2012, when chassis 3445GT was entrusted to Ferrari Classiche for a comprehensive restoration. 

The vehicle presented by CMC was chassis 3445GT raced by Norinder and Troiberg with start number #112 to a 9th OA and 2nd IC finish at Targa Florio 1964.
