52. Ferrari 250 gto

 

The numerical part of its name denotes the displacement in cubic centimeters of each cylinder of the engine, whilst GTO stands for “Gran Turismo Omologata”, Italian for Grand Touring Homologated”. When new, the GTO commanded an $ 18,000 purchase price in the United States and buyers had to be personally approved by Enzo Ferrari and his dealer for North America, Luigi Chinetti. 36 cars were made in the years ’62 and ’63. In 1964 series 2 was introduced, which had a slightly different look. Three such cars were made and four older Series I were given a Series 2 body. It brought the total of GTO’s produced to 39. In 2004 Sports Car International placed the 250 GTO eight on a list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s, and nominated in the top sports car of all time. Similarly, Motor Trend Classic placed the 250 GTO first on a list of the ‘Greatest Ferraris of all time”.

The company’s most successful early line, the 250 series included several variants. Most 250 road cars share the same two wheelbases, 2,400 mm (94.5 inch) for short wheelbase (swb) and 2,600 mm (102,4 inch) for long wheelbase (lwb). Most convertibles used the swb type. Nearly all 250 s share the same engine : The Colombo Tipo 125V12. At 2.953 cc, it is not a larger engine even for the time, but its light weight and impressive output (up to 300 ps in the Testa Rossa and GTO) made a big difference. The Ferrari V12 weighed hundreds of pounds less than its chief competitors – for example, it was nearly half the weight of the Jaguar XK straight 6. As for naming convention Ferrari used capacity of 1 cylinder as a name The light V12 propelled the small Ferrari 250 racing cars to numerous victories.

8. Ferrari 500

8. French Grand Prix at Reims_full

Ferrari 500 in the French Grand Prix 1954. José Froilán González (car no 4) retired after 12 laps and Mike Hawthorn’s Ferrari 500 blew up spectacularly. Former Ferrari double World Champion (1952 & 1953) Alberto Ascari drove a Maserati as the Lancia D 50 was not yet ready for racing and fasted only 1 lap after starting on the outside of the front row. Hans Herrmann with his Mercedes set fastest lap before retiring, but Fangio and Kling with a Mercedes continued their duel until the last lap when team orders were put in force and Fangio led Kling over the line by a meter 0.1 seconds – half a car length. Only six cars finished the gruelling race.
