By 1964, Ferrari needed a better 250 GTO, if that were possible, but Ferrari did it with the '64' model, with that very noticeable sleek bodywork, giving it a personality all its own. 5573 GT did well in racing for Ferrari, helping to win the 1964 Championship, and here it has been restored to reflect those many battles. A concours queen? Certainly not, but correct in every respect.
