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.
Chassis #3757GT was delivered to Jaques Swaters of Ecurie Francorchamps in June
1962. The years 1962 and 1963 saw it compete in major races like 24H Le Mans, GP
Solitude, Tour de France, Montlhery, Zandvoort, Zolder and at Angola GP, where a
total of 10 first places (OA, IC, GT) were up for grabs. In 1964 Peter Clarke bought the
car and started to race it at 1000 km Nürburgring (27th OA), Spa, Oulton Park,
Silverstone, Zandvoort, Snetterton (1st IC), Goodwood, 2000km Daytona (7th OA)
and Sebring. This is the second car with a riveted spoiler and raised taillights. After 3
severe accidents it was restored in 1969 to the specs of the Le Mans participation in
June 1962 and has been in the hands of Nick Mason, famous drummer of Pink Floyd
M-253 presents chassis 3757 as “Beurlys” and “Elde” raced it with start number #22
