The 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO is a Classic Italian Race Car. It is unlocked at Rank 400, it is the highest Rank unlockable in the UDU. It appeared in Ultimate Driving on 25th March 2020. It is called 1962 Cavallino 300 Giotto in-game.
The "250" in its name denotes the displacement in cubic centimeters of each of its cylinders; "GTO" stands for Gran Turismo Omologato, Italian for "Grand Touring Homologated."
Just 36 of the 250 GTOs were manufactured between 1962 and 1964. This includes 33 cars with 1962-63 bodywork (Series I) and three with 1964 (Series II) bodywork similar to the Ferrari 250 LM. Four of the older 1962-1963 (Series I) cars were updated in 1964 with Series II bodies.
When new, the 250 GTO cost $18,000 in the United States, with buyers personally approved by Enzo Ferrari and his dealer for North America, Luigi Chinetti. This model has since become highly desired by automobile collectors and sales have repeatedly set price records. The current record for world's most expensive car was set in June 2018 when a 1963 250 GTO (chassis 4153GT) was sold in a private sale for $70 million.
In 2004, Sports Car International placed the 250 GTO eighth on a list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s, and nominated it the top sports car of all time. Similarly, Motor Trend Classic placed the 250 GTO first on a list of the "Greatest Ferraris of All Time." Popular Mechanics named it the "Hottest Car of All Time."

- It could be unlocked at Rank 500, $2,811 per mile and 70,300 XP per mile before the Raffle draw, but as TwentyTwoPilots lowered the Unlocking Rank to 400 for 250 GTO, The Cashback per mile and XP per mile are nerfed.
- players with the 250 GTO can use some bugs to jack its speed to levels similar to that of a One:1 (and in turn suddenly make this car the best money maker) albeit at the cost of the ability to turn as the GTO does not have the adequate "downforce" needed to prevent wheel-spin at such speeds. As such, these techniques are only good for short bursts and are impractical for sustained use.
