continuing its ‘plain bodies’ series, studio INK visualizes a 1962 ferrari 250 GTO in full CGI, celebrating the history of the unique supercar. designed by engineer giotto bizzarrini with the finishing touches from sergio scaglietti, the 250 GTO was once known as ‘il mostro’ — italian for monster. the name derived from a common perception that the GTO sported unfavorable looks, with its awkward nose and intake, while the prototype revealed a patchwork design of existing components. despite its unloved aesthetic, the power beneath the hood was truly impressive, using the same 3.0L V-12 engine of the le-mans winning ferrari 250 testarossa, the car long stood as ferrari’s everlasting symbol of victory.
