Shortly before the trip to Le Mans, Gipimotor held a celebration event for one of those important Ferraris, namely the 275 GTB. It was one of 18 examples amassed at the company’s Belgian headquarters for the event, with two more ‘themed’ gatherings planned to take place at Gipimotor HQ this year. Looking through the images from this one, it seems the company certainly knows how to set the scene.
