Back in late 2020, UK-based vintage Ferrari specialist, GTO Engineering revealed initial renders of the “Moderna,” its contemporary tribute to the Prancing Horse’s 250 GTO. Today, six months after the initial reveal, GTO Engineering has given us another glimpse of the in-house, V12-powered, rolling Ferrari homage with what the boutique brand is now calling the “Squalo” (Italian for “Shark”).
We already knew the British-built Italian tribute car would tip the scales at around 2,200lbs (or 1,000kgs) – weighing less than a Miata or Fiat 500 — and would be kicked along by a V12 engine that GTO designed entirely in-house. A modern interpretation of the 250 GTO, the Squalo’s now-finalized design is built around a steel-tube chassis, will be made completely by hand, and will feature 18” wheels and GTO Engineering’s own quad-cam 4.0L twelve-banger paired with a manual transmission. The GTO Engineering Squalo will be available for order worldwide, and more specs and information are expected to be released in the coming months.
