    Hello, everyone, I once registered Ferrari Chat for searching some information about 250 GTO, and I must say lots of you are really knowledgeable. Just now I noticed tfjj posted a 250 GTO, and due to the exterior color and the number on the door I think it is 3451GT, a 1963 ver. 250 GTO owned by Lawrence Stroll, but now, it appears in Monaco with a UK number plate.

    tfjj also tags a man named Simon Kidston, so he is probably the new owner? I also searched this number plate 603 XVM, but it registered in Dec, 1996. So I think this car plate once used in other cars, and cannot indicate the transaction’s period.

    So is this 250 GTO really changes an owner?

    P.S. I am just a newbie in Ferrari Chat, if this kind of question is prohibited, just tell me or delete it, sorry for the bother, hope everyone have a great weekend! Image Unavailable, Please Login

    The 250 GTO is 3451GT, a 1962 version, the 5th by order of chassis number ascension, of a total of 36 built, between 1962 and 1964. Simon Kidston is the broker who sold it quite recently, along with other Ferraris that belonged to Lawrence Stroll.

    Thx for your reply! Yes, I saw his post too, but it seems that Ferrari Chat could only upload one picture each time, so I chose to use the tfjj’s photo. But your information is new for me as well, I used to think this guy is the buyer, but I am wrong, haha. Do you know the price? Maybe it would break the records again?

    Yes, I also checked the number plate on this website but it is quite strange IMO. On Barchetta.cc, Dec 1996 was the period that Lawrence Stroll achieved 3451GT, and the same time 603 XVM registered. So Stroll always put this car in UK/or chose to register it with UK plate? 1996 is older than me so I don’t know what he was doing in UK at that time, I think it was way early when he took part in F1 racing team.

    People could have different aesthetic but for this I figure everybody would agree with that! I planned to go to Salon Prive this year but failed due to some Visa problems, hope there will be a feast in 2022, the 60 years’ anniversary.

    Although it was first registered in the UK in 1996 does not mean it always resided here after that, it may well have gone all over the world, but keeping its registration live in the UK would allow the car to return at any time without additional duties having to be paid no doubt.

    Probably just stored here with someone like DK then flown out as and when required to other locations, before returning and going back into storage.

    Very nice photo! 3451GT appears in lots of Ferrari Classical activities by Lawrence Stroll, even for a long time it wore a red exterior. Hope its new owner would follow Stroll’s habit as well.

    That’s reasonable, Marcel Massini’s photo indicates it also wore an UK number plate 1 LSS, and from my knowledge, it also used LSR 1 in past, I think all these are UK classical number plates, too.

    I guess I didn't understand why you were posting an old link, referring to the Stroll collection... So to avoid any confusion your post may have caused, I wanted to point out that the Stroll collection was dismantled last year and the subject of this thread is no longer his, hence fixing your post.
