Chassis: 3851GT
Built in September of 1962, this 250 GTO was sold new to Jo Schlesser and Henri Oreiller. They finished second in that year's Tour de France but Oreiller was sadly involved in a fatal accident during its next outing at Montlhery. This was the only fatal crash with a 250 GTO in period. Rebuilt by the factory, chassis 3851GT was sold to an Italian early in 1963. He campaigned the car in local events, as did its subsequent owner. In 1965, the car was bought by the late Fabrizio Violati after it looked set to go to the scrapper. Over the years, he had the car rebuilt and for many years raced it in historic events. It was later displayed in his fabulous Maranello Rosso museum in San Marino. When Violati passed away, he had been the longest continuous owner of a GTO. In 2014, the entire collection was acquired by a third party and the GTO will now be offered at no reserve in the Bonhams Quail auction, where it is set to become the most expensive car ever sold at auction.
