250GTO 50TH ANNIVERSARY limited edition

Alberto Martinez, Richard Newton and Philippe Schlienger

Enzo Ferrari, more than anyone else, revolutionized motor sports and is recognized as the founding father of the modern sports car. Ferrari instilled audacity, rarity, and aesthetic perfectionism to make of the 250gto a natural winner.

It took two years of preparation to Jean Berchon, a direct descendant of the Moët family, and longtime 250gto owner Peter Sachs, to organize this incredible rally to celebrate the 250GTO's 50th anniversary. 23 of the 38 250gtos ever built came together to face off from 3 to 7 July 2012 on an itinerary departing from the cloister of the Abbey Saint-Pierre d’Hautvillers before going on to the Le Mans race circuit, the châteaux of the Loire Valley and finally Versailles.
