Gto engineering squalo v12: a ‘shark’ on wheels tribute to the ferrari 250 gto

The famous British firm, GTO Engineering, specialized in the restoration and modification of various sports cars of the house Ferrari, presented what will be his new original sports car created in tribute to the Ferrari 250 GTO and what is its name Squalo V12.

Thus, the new GTO Engineering Squalo V12 changed the name that it had in the project phase, which was Modern, so that it did not coincide with that of the Covid 19 vaccine, and received the last aesthetic adjustments before moving on to production.

Its aesthetic pays homage to the general lines of the Ferrari 250 GTO but reinterpreted for modernity, such as the optical assembly and the gills or lateral air intakes in new ways and the wheels that keep a retro-futuristic pattern and that are of 18 inches.

The nod to the past remains in its double bubble roof, its lower air intake, the absence of front and rear, the rear window inclination and the four rear exhaust outlets.

In mechanics, the GTO Engineering has a motor V12 naturally aspirated and of origin Ferrari to which a manual transmission is coupled. For now, the British firm did not reveal the capacity and scope of this block, but what it did reveal is that its power will have to mobilize a set of less than 1,000 kilos of weight.

The other intervention of the brand was to give better presentation to the engine for which it required the best engineers and beautification specialists in the industry, according to GTO.
