Modernized Ferrari 250 GTO Is Not Your Typical Blasphemy

Back in 1962 when Ferrari introduced the 250 GTO for homologation in the Gran Touring Car race class, this came with a price of $18,000, which would make for $154,310 in today's money (think: some $60,000 short of the entry-level Portofino's starting price). Only 36 units were built, but, if you were willing to adorn your garage with one today, you should know that a 1963 example destroyed the record for the publicly reported selling price of an automobile back in 2018, trading hands for $70 million. So yes, the 250 GTO we have here is obviously a rendering.

The pixel painting sitting before us aims to modernize the iconic Prancing Horse. And while this will have purists shouting "heresy" even though this is simply a visual exercise, there's one aspect of the rendering that can't be ignored: the project keeps it simple, at least as far as the exterior is concerned.

So, following an expanding trend, the Maranello machine was brought closer to the road. And, in a further transformation of its road connection, the Fezza received custom wheels supplied by Vossen.

Of course, the light clusters have a serious impact on how we perceive the age of a vehicle, so this Ferrari 250 GTO features all-led units. And while this only covers the graphics when it comes to the headlights, the taillights now skip the factory "circles" for a vertical layout.

As for the side exhausts, these are basically here to add some rawness to the project.

Then there's the interior, which makes for the most radical change. How come? Well, the cabin goodies have been borrowed from the LaFerrari!

In case you wish to know more about the mind behind these pixels, you should know we're talking about an artist named Shashank Das - those of you following our Speed Shot tales (there's a tag for that below) might be familiar to his work thanks to pixel projects like this C8 Corvette (road-legal C8.R) or this offroad-savvy Lamborghini Urus.
