    Google GTO Engineering SWB. Mostly fabricated from the ground up although some do have a real Ferrari V12.

    Very cool, what do those things go for usually? I see the one in the US is $1M ask, sounds a bit high?

    They are asking $1.4m. A new one goes for around $700k/$800k i think depending on the options and whether or not you provide a real Ferrari sn/identity. Build takes a year so that might explain why they are asking almost 2x the msrp...

    So, what engine does this car have? Transmission?
    I've never seen a 3.5 liter V-12 - no engine photos.
    A number of items in the description do not make sense to me.

    It's built by GTO Engineering. You can upgrade the 3.0 (built to match the real 3.0 V12) to higher specs.

    They restored and maintain many real SWB so they have the blueprints and knowledge. But it's not a Ferrari part.

    1563 GT was originally a 250 GT Coupé Pinin Farina, painted white with black interior, and sold new through Johnny Von Neumann's Ferrari Representatives of Hollywood, CA/USA.

    Another genuine Ferrari lost. Another tragedy.
