    To many people, myself included, the 250 GTO is the ultimate street/racing/GT car ever made. I’m sure that every one made has somehow made its mark as an automotive legend.

    BUT, is there ONE GTO that stands head and shoulders above all the rest?

    In terms of sheer wins, which one had brought home the most gold?

    TDF??? LeMans??? Others?

    A friend of mine has owned two – one, in fact, campaigned by a lady, Annie -------.

    I’m sure that the answers to my questions are documented in some book but I thought it would be an interesting topic here.

    4293 GT is one of the best, if not THE best. Entered in 1963 by Ecurie Francorchamps in the Le Mans 24 Hours-race and finished 2nd OA and 1st in class, behind a factory entered 250 P. Overall winner of the Spa 500 km in 1963... Because of it's short but successfull race carreer, it never really had an accident while many other 250 GTO were heavily crashed.

    Best regards

    -Kevin

    Not too difficult to accomplish. List here the chassis numbers of all thirty six 250 GTOs and then, beside each one, we can fill in the current location. When all are filled in, a map will be easy.

    I would strongly recommend Keith Bluemel's book "FERRARI 250 GTO." It addresses each of the 36 GTO's, as well as the 3 4 Litre cousins, by chassis number. Giving racing and ownership history on each car, including photos of each car. The book was published in 1998, so the information is almost 10 years old. I know several of the cars have changed hands since, but regular readers of Cavalino and the like should havr no trouble filling in most of the blanks. Also barchetta.cc should be able to fill you in as to the current ownership of each car.

    T308 - why is the first car listed as F-chatter with an ! (which suggests you know the name) yet you seem implicitly happy to blow the annonymity of every other owner ?

    Jimmie, I can't comment on his decision to list the other owners, but the owner of 3223 is a fellow F-Chatter and has been harassed by another user because of his connection with the car. He would now prefer to remain anonymous.

    The names of the other owners of the GTOs are and have been available in the public domain for quite some while.
    Even when 3223 attend car shows like the Reading Concours the entrants name is listed as anonymous
    I respect this
