Ferrari’s Iconic 250 GT SWB Returns As A Ground-Up Classic Recreation

If you aren’t aware, the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione is one of history’s most influential vehicles. From its striking silhouette, Colombo 3.0-litre V12 engine, and racing roots, all the way to its dramatic, modern-day price tag, the SWB has solidified its position as the centerpiece of many an automotive aficionado’s “drive before I die” listing. While ownership of an original model might seem absurd, GTO Engineering has shown us a glimmer of hope with its all-new “Revival” edition — a living, breathing replica that’s as close to the factory-built model as many of us will ever get.

The Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione “Revival” boasts a striking silhouette that’s a mirror image of the original. Almost no stone has been left unturned here, thanks to GTO Engineering’s painstaking reproduction process, courtesy of drawings, measurements, and information acquired from the vehicle’s initial run. Below the hood, a 280 horsepower, house-built Colombo V12 makes its debut, complementing its standard four-speed transmission. Each example boasts a newly-devised tubular frame and hand-beaten aluminum paneling, as well as improved suspension, a 17:1 steering ratio, and wheel alignment, giving it more gumption on the roadway. At over $1,000,000 each, these built-to-order Revival editions aren’t for the faint of heart. But if you’re looking to acquire an SWB body for under $10 million, this is your best bet. Head to GTO Engineering’s Instagram for a closer look.
