Perhaps the most iconic automotive design ever, the Ferrari GTO has long been the subject of facsimilies and replicas, and the car on offer today is an evocation of Le Mans-winning chassis 19. Based on a 1990 Porsche 944 S2 3.0, which has been repanelled whilst utilising the chassis, doors, engine, 5-speed gearbox, Brembo vented disc brakes, cooling & heating system, PAS, wiring loom, front screen and washer system, it is registered on the Swansea V5 as a 250 GTO Replica. The engine develops some 245bhp and features a remapped ECU, induction kit and stainless steel exhaust. The interior features include a Nardi wheel, Veglia gauges, convincing looking gearchange, blue cloth seats, sliding windows, rear Perspex screen and airscoop. Sitting on chrome wire wheels with hub converters and three-eared spinners, great attention to detail has resulted in an exotic-looking but easy to live with car that is sure to turn heads. Offered with service history relating to the donor 944 and a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale we understand the belts and tensioners were recently replaced along with the alternator and an uprated starter motor fitted.
