Driving a 600bhp Ferrari 250 GTO resto-mod // The Late Brake Show

4 Просмотры
Welcome to The Late Brake Show. When is a Ferrari 250 GTO not a Ferrari 250 GTO? When it was built over 15 years (back in the 1990s) using parts of crashed other Ferraris. And when it is twice the power of the original 250 GTO, which still remains the world's most valuable car (the last one selling in 2018 at auction for $70 million).

Jonny borrows owner and builder Will Tomkins' (co-owner of ) Ferrari 'speciale', which was born from buying hand made alloy bodyshell, a modified chassis of a fire damaged Ferrari 400i and the V12 of a 575 Maranello. The latter would have had 515bhp when new in 2002, but Will modified the throttle bodies, ditched the emissions exhaust system and spent time dyno tuning it to produce 601bhp - twice the power of an original 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO!

Stop. It's time for The Late Brake Show.

Is this a recreation? Is it a replica? We call it the ultimate Ferrari hot-rod, with the looks of a 1960s racer but the 210mph performance of a millennium Modena product. Will built it to use and abuse, so Jonny drove the car on road and then on track (airstrip - he couldn't afford Silverstone) to breathe in the emissions and fever of a properly sorted race-bred resto-mod.

Thanks to Project Heaven for letting Jonny burn through 130 litres of super unleaded in under 100 miles for the purposes of video content.
