The 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO is a Special Type of Ecstasy

Classic Cars

Just listen to that V12. It's unlike anything else.

When you’re famed racecar driver and champion Phil Hill’s son, you’re likely to be able to afford a great number of exotic and rare cars. But Derek Hill is not just Phil’s son. He’s also a successful race car driver in his own right, taking home 1st place in the 1995 Ferrari Challenge International Championship and the 1996 Formula Dodge West Coast. He also raced a Bugatti EB110 at Le Mans. Hill’s 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO is special for him not only because of the car’s rarity.

It’s the 250 GT Phil Hill raced in Nassau and Daytona. Only 36 250 GTO’s were built (three of this particular body style), all of which are still around today. But for Derek Hill, it’s not only owning and driving a piece of Ferrari history, it’s also a family thing.
