GTO Engineering, British experts for the restoration of Ferrari models, presented their own sports model that is stylistically and mechanically consistent with classic Ferraris, but has a modern chassis and carbon fiber body.
The GTO series labeled Revival was successful enough for the company to embark on this ambitious project. It is a creation that was inspired by Ferraris from the 1960s, specifically the legendary 250 GTO.
Squalo costs a million dollars, but it is still relatively affordable compared to the original 250 GTO. This car was previously announced as a Modern project, and now new pictures have been published showing the final design.
Squalo (“shark” in Italian) has an aluminum tubular chassis, carbon body panels, modern suspension, brakes and electronics that guarantee safety and reliability. Engineers have made sure that the weight of the car remains below one ton, which will ensure top performance.
GTO Engineering previously used V12 units with volumes of 3, 3.5 and 4 liters, and they all produced more than 300HP. The company has confirmed that the Squalo will have a 4-liter engine with more than 460hp, which will reach 10,000 rpm. The gearbox is manual.
The company plans to offer a number of options for personalizing the car, including color and trim, as well as adjusting key components such as the suspension and transmission. The GTO also develops its own wheels up to 18 inches in size.
The cabin will have a simple, minimalist design with elements of luxury. Instead of a center console with a touch screen, there are buttons and switches to control various functions.
Squalo can already be ordered, and the first deliveries are expected in 2023.
