Background information about the photo:
In 1929, Enzo Ferrari founded the Scuderia Ferrari racing team in Maranello, near Modena. In the years that followed, the race team raced for Alfa Romeo. Victory after victory was won, until Enzo Ferrari decided to leave Alfa Romeo in 1939. As a result, the name Ferrari could not be used in connection with racing cars for a long time. Around 1945, Ferrari begins to design its own cars. A few years later, Ferrari puts the first car on the market, the Ferrari 125 S.
To continue growing, Ferrari needed more capital. That is why the car brand started collaborating with Fiat in 1969. In the years that followed, Ferrari produced many world-famous cars such as the Testarossa, 308 GTB and 208 GTB. Bringing these cars to the market and achieving many successes in Formula 1 ensured that Ferrari continued to grow.
This photo shows you the Ferrari 250 GTO with chassis number 3445GT, that was manufactured on april 30, 1962, first owned by Italian racer Sergio Bettoja. Bettoja sold it to politician Count Volpi. After many years and many different owners, the 250 GTO got damaged in an accident at the GTO 50TH anniversary tour in 2012. After this accident, the chassis number 3445GT was trusted to Ferrari Classiche to do a full restoration. In 2015 it was fully restored again. This photo was taken at Concorso d'Eleganza, 2018, at Villa d'Este, Lago di Como.
