Ferrari GTO Film Selected for Jalopnik Film Festival
Back in late April, we debuted the above video starring one of the last Ferrari GTOs and Mr. Derek Hill, a racing driver in his own right and son of the first American Formula One Champion, Mr. Phil Hill, who also drove the car when it was new. Before it went live, many of us in the Petrolicious office watched it more than once enjoying the sights and sounds over and over. After it went live it seems that many of you did the same thing. And upon its release we said that “using hyperbole to describe the 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO [was] unnecessary.” We love shooting great cars in scenic locations, but this GTO and the circumstances surrounding it were something special.
It seems that Jalopnik agrees as just a few days ago they announced that the film had been selected as a finalist for its Film Festival in New York City, this November. We’re honored and look forward to sharing the film with a broader audience as well as seeing other great automotive stories.
