Ferrari 250 GTO Evocazione photoHistorics at Brooklands is offering a recreation of a Ferrari 250 GTO for auction on September 25, at a fraction of the cost of the real racer, which would pretty much empty your bank accounts. Based on an original, matching numbers, right hand drive Ferrari 330 GT, the car was purpose built to create an authentic copy of the only right hand drive 4.0 Litre five-speed 250 GTO, built by Ferrari to compete at Le Mans.

Completed in 1993, the chassis was shipped to Italy where it was shortened and converted to GTO specification, before a handmade aluminium body was painstakingly sculpted, and subsequently returned to the UK for fitting by Ferrari experts.

The car goes under the hammer this SeptemberDemonstrating the quality of this painstaking project, the car features a number of correct GTO parts, as well as proving visually accurate thanks to an original 400mm GTO steering wheel, original style gauges and the correct 7” front and 8” rear Borrani wire wheels.

Designed as a tribute to the Le Mans racer, this Evocazione has also seen action on the track, achieving a number of wins and podium finishes at the hands of renowned historic racers, and remains ready to race in a number of events as well as being fully road registered.

According to Historics, while the most recent high-profile sale of an original 250 GTO setting BBC Radio DJ Chris Evans was for £12 million, the 1965 Ferrari 250 GTO Evocazione offered for sale this September is expected to fetch £240,000.
