Ferrari – 250 GTE Racing


Vehicle Overview

Ferrari 250 GTE racing rebodied in the mid-60s by the Sport Cars of Piero Drogo in collaboration with Giotto Bizzarrini. An article on an issue of “Auto Italiana” from 1963 reports: “… a batch of Ferrari GT are being consigned to customers from a collaboration of Neri & Bonacini and Carrozzeria Sport Cars of Piero Drogo. (…) The 1961 Ferrari engine has 6 carburetors and has been updated with an upgrade and the conversion to dry sump. The chassis has been modified and lightened and the bodywork completely transformed. The new design, suggested from Eng. Bizzarrini, is designed to reduce to a minimum the drag. The new fool loaded heigh is 113cm, 15 less than the original car and total weight reduced by 40kg. The 290hp of the engine is enough to push the car up to around 275-280 km/h and it should qualify easily in the prototype class. According to Bizzarrini’s calculations the new body should also guarantee a huge reduction in fuel consumption”.
