It is a testament to the reputation and quality of their work that Moto Technique were entrusted to carry out a ground up restoration of one of the original 36 Ferrari 250 GTO’s, (chassis number 3527GT ) One of the Worlds most valuable cars.

Undertaking the restoration of such a historically important iconic car is not something for the fainthearted. It has to be done with extreme care and attention, but most of all with integrity that respects the cars history and provenance.

This 250 GTO was forensically dismantled right down to the light weight tubular chassis. The chassis’s alignment was then checked on the Moto Technique state-of-the art digital jig, before and after the strip down, where it proved to be absolutely correct and to factory specification.

Body and chassis alignment checked on digital state-of-the-art jig.

All the body panels were then sympathetically restored (Not replaced) using all the in-house skill and experience of the artisan panel beaters.

The paint work was then impeccably finished in Ferrari Red and the whole car reassembled like a fine Swiss watch by the Moto Technique fitters, who have on occasions been accused of being a little OCD when it comes to fit and finish.

Interior Trim

A bespoke interior was re-trimmed in Connolly leather by Rob O’Rourke of O’Rourke Coachtrimmers to the customers exact requirements. The interior that it replaced was kept and stored, should the owner ever decide to return it to original specification.

On completion of this project, this car was handed back to its owner who then embarked on a two day 1000 mile journey to a very warm South of France including some heavy traffic in Paris along the way. The car arrived faultlessly and the owner was quoted as saying:

“Everything about this car is splendid and I am certain much, much better than when it left Maranello”
