The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione is one of the world’s most iconic racing cars. And today GTO Engineering has shown a copy of this model called the 250 SWB Revival.

So, GTO Engineering specialists used original drawings and existing knowledge about the model when developing a car. 250 SWB Revival received the original tubular frame and body. The car is based on the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione version, which is 203 mm shorter than the 250 GT. The company notes that they can build 250 SWB Revival, based on the wishes of the client.

As for the powertrain, GTO Engineering offers a choice of a 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0 liter Colombo V12 engine with an output of 280 hp. Each motor has a triple carburetor for smooth power delivery and is combined with 4-speed or 5-speed manual transmission.

The auto incorporates a disc brake design using traditional disc brakes, although lighter aluminum brake calipers are available. The wheels are available in 16 “or optional 15” in polished or standard finishes.

To improve the handling of the 250 SWB Revival, specialists have installed a special suspension that provides increased traction, stability, comfort and ease of use compared to the original model. In addition, the car can be ordered both without bumpers and with chrome analogs.

Speaking of the 250 SWB Revival, it is worth noting the presence of leather seats with headrests, also trimmed with leather. Air conditioning, USB port, navigation system and built-in stereo are optionally available.

GTO Engineering has already sold 30 250 SWB Revival units, each of which will take 12 to 18 months to build, depending on the specifications chosen. The cost of each car exceeds $ 1,000,000

In addition, it was recently noted that a dubious replica of the Ferrari Enzo supercar was made from an inexpensive Pontiac Fiero. It should be emphasized that this car was put up for sale at a cost of $ 4,500.
