The 250 GTO is one of the most famous and fascinating models in the history of Ferrari. It was presented in 1962 in view of the new sporting regulations which gave great importance to the results obtained by the GTs. The GTO could be considered an extreme development of the 250 GT SWB, which in previous years had proven extremely competitive. The engine was the 2953cc V12, which gave around 300hp. The bodywork was characterized by the extreme aerodynamics of its shapes and also by its extraordinary general beauty. The GTO had several bodywork updates, with an entirely new version presented in 1964. A version with a 4-litre engine was also used in competition. The GTO's track record was impressive, with countless class and overall victories, and the cars continued to race until the late 1960s.

At the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1964 the Ferrari 250 GTOs appeared for the first time in difficulty compared to the new Cobras. Car number 26 (chassis 5571GT), entered by NART for Hugus and Rosinski, retired in the ninth hour after occupying 13th place overall.

BBR-MODELS

BBR fu fondata da Alberto Balestrini, Enrico Barberis e Fernando Reali a Saronno (Italia) nel 1984. Il marchio si impone rapidamente all'attenzione degli appassionati per l'alta qualità dei modelli, in resina scala 1:43, venduto in kit e montati . Negli anni ’90 la qualità e il prestigio del marchio aumentarono ulteriormente, con prodotti di gamma alta per i collezionisti più esigenti. BBR collaborava già strettamente con marchi come Ferrari. Numerose furono le iniziative commerciali, con gamme dalle fasce di prezzo differenti. Nel 2005, BBR introdusse anche i modelli diecast in 1:18, una scala che aveva preso sempre più piede anche nella produzione dell'azienda italiana. Attualmente la 1:18 occupa ancora una parte importantissima nell’attività BBR ma la 1:43 continua ad essere sviluppata.
