13 30º GTO GTO SPECIAL
The 30th birthday? A mere trifle, if you have left adolescence behind you and are now hardened by experience. The GTO's life goes like this: a great genius who, while still a baby. won no fewer than three world titles, one after the other.
And now at 30, we remember the GTO as beautiful, fast and unbeatable. A true legend.

In 1960 I was head of the Reparto experienze, collaudi e controlli (Experimental, testing and checking department) and therefore responsible for cars commissioned by clients: not only those who used their Ferraris on the road, but also the so-called 'gentlemen-drivers' who entered our cars privately in races all over the world.

50 30º GTO United colours of GTO
