The 250 GT saw production from 1954 through 1964 and was the first high-volume automobile from Ferrari with some 2,500 examples produced. Power came from a 3.0-liter V12 that incorporated Ferrari's double overhead cams. Power output was rated between 220 and 240 horsepower providing 140 mph top speed.
The Drogo was designed by Piero Drogo who was born in Italy. Drogo began racing in Venezuela in the 1950s. His best result came in 1956 when he finished seventh in the Venezuelan Grand Prix. The following year he won his class in the Buenos Aires 1000 in Argentina and a year later he decided to head for Europe where he raced at LeMans in a Ferrari. He went into the coach-building business, Carrozzeria Sports Cars in Modena, and created bodywork for a variety of customers, notably Ferrari. Drogo died in 1973 at the age of 47 while driving a Ferrari 250 near Bologna.Also photographed at :
