Description of the original vehicle: Shortly after its incipient racing appearances, the 250 GTO sent shockwaves through the motorsports scene. The car seemed to be at home on every kind of track and was able to deliver extraordinary performances whether on a race circuit or windy mountain road.

Such was the case at the 46th Targa Florio on May 6, 1962. The Italian driver-team Giorgio Scarletti and Pietro Ferraro joined the endurance race in their two-tone-finish 250 GTO with starting number 86. The race comprised 10 laps of the Circuito Piccolo delle Madonie that stretched 72 km long, so a distance of 720 km was to be covered in total. The circuit ran along public mountain roads in the Greater Palermo area, with its start and finish line set in the village Cerda. It had approximately 900 curves, thus demanding hours of highest concentration and driving skills from the pilots. Crowds, frequently dangerous roadsides, rock formations, trees and deep chasms added to the difficulties for drivers trying to race to victory on the tracks already bumpy and dusty enough. The racecars started off individually every 20 seconds, as a simultaneous start was impossible because of the narrow streets. Even overtaking from behind was extremely difficult. For an experienced driver, it was possible to complete a lap in less than 40 minutes, which corresponded to an average speed of about 100 km/h.

The GTO-team Scarlatti/Ferraro coped with the ordeal well by finishing the race for 7h: 22m: 8.100s and became the winner in the GT-class. It led them to an honorable 4th place in overall standing. This was one more indication that the Ferrari 250 GTO was going to be a serial winner with few rivals to pose a serious threat to its domination.
