This car chassis number 3387, is the second GTO produced. It is also referred to as the second production prototype. It was completed in March of 1962 and was nearly identical to chassis #3223. During early testing at Monza, the car received a small tail spoiler, a modified fuel filler and vents worked into the rear fenders.
Ownership passed from Ferrari to Luigi Chinetti Motors on March 16, 1962. Chinetti wanted the car to run under NART banner at Sebring on March 24th. It was air-freighted Miami on Alitalia and registered in New York State. At Sebring, it was piloted by Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien to a second overall and first in class. The car was returned to the factory and overhauled in preparation for Le Mans, where it finished sixth overall and third in class.
While total production of only 39 cars ensures exclusivity, this car has an additional layer added because it was raced as a factory team car.

This Sperimentale also known as a GTO Prototype is probably the only “Factory Entry” to compete in a color other than red. As seen here it has been restored to its original 1961 Le Mans Livery.
Utilizing a type 168/61 “Testa Rossa” engine with six carburetors #2643 debuted in a Le Mans in 1961 where it ran in the top ten until the engine expired at the 12 hour mark. In 1962 it was driven to first in class and fourth overall by Sir Stirling Moss at Daytona. Then sold to NART and raced at Sebring where it finished eighth overall and a Le Mans finishing fourth overall. It was later sold to Bill Luftman and was campaigned extensively throughout the eastern United States.

Inspired by John Cooper's new Monaco, the rear engine Lotus 19 utilized much of the same suspension, braking and engine components as the highly successful Lotus 18. it carried a fully enclosed racing body, with a mandatory second seat and a multi-tube space frame chassis. Lotus built only 16 of this model.
Some were powered by the all-conquering 2.5-liter Coventry Climax FPF series double overhead cam inline four-cylinder engine, producing 240 horsepower. This engine had propelled Lotus to five race wins in the 1959 grand prix season and eight of ten races in the 1960 season.
When the 19 arrived in the competition spotlight at Riverside Raceway in 1960, it ushered in a new era. Stirling Moss and Dan Gurney obliterated the existing records, Gurney shaved over four seconds off the previous record. Sir Stiring gets credit for the 19's first win, at its competition debut in Karlkoga, Sweden.
