Scaglietti's original 250 GTO wireframe heads to auction

On 21 March, an intricate wireframe around which Scaglietti perfected the legendary lines of the Ferrari 250 GTO will be sold at auction in Lyon…

The jig – bought directly from Ferrari by its current owner in the 1980s – is one of the two produced in period by Scaglietti, used as a reference point for the GTO’s sumptuous aluminium bodywork. With the other being retained by Ferrari, and currently on show in the Modena museum, it represents a unique opportunity to acquire what is possibly the ultimate collectable for the high-end Ferrari enthusiast. Of course, it could be used as a template for a faithful recreation, but considering its beauty – and the estimate of €100,000 to €150,000 – it’s more likely to be employed as a work of art in its own right. Scaglietti’s Ferrari 250 GTO wireframe will be sold at Aguttes’ auction in Lyon on 21 March.
