• The Raw V-12 Soundtrack Of This 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO Will Send Goosebumps Down Your Spine

Watch as this 1 of 36 Ferrari 250 GTO gets driven at the limit for 10 minutes, in an epic display of driving skills and V-12 soundtrack

Goodwood is one of the very few places where highly-exclusive, classic vehicles can be seen, driven on their limits. When it comes to special cars, few can match the presence of a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO. The Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the rarest and most expensive, high-performance vehicles, which is why seeing one being raced is a rare occurance.

The video comes from the official, Goodwood Road & Racing YouTube channel, and shows us on-board footage from the cockpit of the Italian exotic. This particular, 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO is owned by Roelofs Engineering, and is being driven by Marino Franchitti, at the 79th Goodwood Members’ Meeting.

Seeing the driver finessing the car with precise steering wheel input and throttle modulation is a sight, we’ve been largely deprived of in modern-day motorsports. Complementing the visual experience is the raw sound of the Tipo 168, 3.0-liter V-12. The naturally-aspirated unit features six Weber carburetors and is good for 296 horsepower and 217 pound-feet (294 Nm).

Power goes to the rear through a five-speed manual with a gated shifter. Naturally, there’s nothing in the way of safety systems and sound insolation, to rob from the visceral driving experience.

Until not long ago, the Ferrari 250 GTO held the record for the most expensive car in the world, valued at $70.0 million. Only 36 examples of the Ferrari 250 GTO have been made and no two are the same, since each car was hand-crafted. Words don’t make it justice, so feel free to watch the video below.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
