Ferrari 612 GTO: not real, sadly

German designer creates ultra-hardcore version of Ferrari’s grand tourer. Yowzer

Ferrari 612 GTO

Ferrari doesn't make a new GTO very often. About every 21 years, on average.

So with the 599 GTO landing in a giant, drifty plume of tyre smoke just a couple of months back, it's hyper-unlikely that we'll see any other current Ferraris converted to GTO spec in the near future.

Which is why German designer Sasha Selipanov has taken it upon himself to imagine how a 612 Scaglietti GTO might look. An ultra-hardcore version of Ferrari's four-seater grand tourer, you say? The results are spectacular, and more than a little reminiscent of the One-77.

Selipanov hasn't given any hint what might be done to the Scag's 5.7-litre V12, or indeed any other mechanical details, so we'll leave that to you to speculate. 600bhp is surely a minimum, though? And just think of all the wild technology Ferrari could test out on a Scaglietti GTO. Let your techimaginations run wild... and roll on 2031.

Now share it...
