See this legendary Ferrari 250LM? I got this from this weekend's Forzathon event involving this time Ferraris. Looks like this weekend's event centers on the prancing horses, which is somewhat a contrast from last weekend's event involving Lamborghinis. But still, it took me 50 danger sign jumps to get this car, which is of course, one of the challenges from this weekend's Forzathon event.
So, what's this 250LM all about? When it was presented at the 1963 Paris Motor Show, the 250LM is the berlinetta version of the 250 P prototype, sharing the same chassis and running gear with a few changes. It was the last Ferrari to win Le Mans, and courtesy of the North American Racing Team in 1965 driven by Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory. There were 32 of these every made, most but not all were powered by a 3.3-litre V12 engine producing 320HP of power, Originally, Ferrari intended to homologate it for racing as a Group 3 car but FIA regulations rejected Ferrari's proposal so they made less than the required 100 units, so only 32 were made. Believe it or not, it has the highest price tag ever auctioned, starting at 14.3 million dollars.
What you're looking at here is a legendary machine with its racing pedigree and its outrageously high value, meaning that its a treasure that deserves to be kept by those who desired to live the legend and to be honest, I am more than happy to live the legend but there's a different story to that because there's something fishy going about...this legendary horse. A point I made moments later...
That was one part of the hand feels like it couldn't move while turning the wheel or was it really a glitch? No one knows but despite the slight glitch occurred, the Ferrari 250LM is more than enough to satisfy a driver like me who demands more challenges. Looks like there's going to be more Forzathon events happening with event cars coming out over the course of this month.
