Chassis: 3413GT
The third 250 GTO built, chassis 3413GT was first used as a factory training car. Works driver Phil Hill drove it around the Targa Florio track with engineer Mauro Forghieri in the passenger seat to give him first-hand experience of the GT-racer he developed. Soon after it was sold to Italian driver Edoardo Lualdi, who used it extensively in hill-climbs, scoring numerous outright victories. At the end of the 1962 season, he was crowned the Italian Hillclimb champion in his class. In April of 1963 Lualdi scored his final victory in 3413GT before selling it on to Gianni Bulgari. He scored a class win in the Targa Florio that year.

In December Bulgari sold the 250 GTO on to Corrado Ferlaino, who immediately sent the car back to the factory for the installation of the Series 2 or 1964 type body. Of the four original GTOs modified to 1964 specifications, chassis 3413GT was one of two fitted with the long, spoiler-less roof. In its new guise, the 250 GTO was once again driven to class victory in the Targa Florio by its new owner. In 1965 it was sold again, this time to a British owner. David Piper drove the highly successful machine to two further outright wins that year.

Following its contemporary racing career, chassis 3413GT has passed through the hands of various prominent collectors, including Neil Corner and Sir Anthony Bamford. In 2000, it was acquired by American collector and historic racer Greg Whitten. He has used it frequently since in major events on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2018, the 250 GTO was consigned to the RM Sotheby's Monterey sale. It is expected to sell for more than $45 million, which would make it the most expensive car ever sold at auction.
