20 Omologato 1963
The Ferrari 250 GTO in the Tour de France Automobile in 1963

From its presentation in February of 1962, the Ferrari 250 GTO, the ultimate evolution of the Ferrari 250 GT series of cars, won almost all of its races by taking away that year the GT category in the Targa Florio, the 24 Heures du Mans and the Tourists Trophy of Goodwood. These exceptional success were crowned by the Grand Tourisme World Championship. It won all the events ... except for the 1962 Tour de France Automobile.

Formula One

Tires are still the key to victory - guess right and they will last until the end. Guess wrong and all the speed in the world won't be translated to the road. Ferrari has taken some heartbreaking top five finishes but retains the lead for the Drivers' Championship.
