GTO ENGINEERING SQUALO

British specialty-car builder and Ferrari specialists, GTO Engineering
will launch a project of their own, the Squalo (shark in Italian),
inspired by the most mythical of the Ferrari, the 250 GTO from the
1960s, considered to be the most valuable car of all time. Being
developed since November 2020, the impressive restomod pushes the
boundaries of modern craftsmanship and blends modern technology and
manufacturing with attention to detail. The gorgeous neo-classic machine
is powered by a naturally aspirated quad-cam 4.0-liter V12 engine,
paired with a manual gearbox, that drives the rear wheels. Currently, we
have no more real specifications on the car and pricing has not been
announced, but reservations are being accepted, with deliveries expected
to begin in 2023. So get your check book out now. Continue reading
