All I can think about every time I watch this video is how desperately I wish this had been the more attractive fastback model instead. This thing is hideous comparison, which is harsh to say of such a great car.
Dear Petrolicious team,
can you please tell me the name of the song wich one played at 4:50?
It would be nice to thank Giotto Bizzarrini for such a special car, he designed and engineered it.
What a beautiful film, and a fabulous car… I was lucky enough to be in the Paddock at the Goodwood Revival in 2012 for the 50th Anniversary of the 250 GTO as 15 (or so) moved out for their parade lap… I’ll never forget the sight’s, sound’s and smell’s…
Congratulations to all of you who made this, & for Derek allowing it. Probably the best car vid I’ve ever seen. Dunno if there are any award a video like this can be nominated for, but I hope there is.
Stunning Video, goosebumps at the sound of that engine on some of the onboard shots!
What is the Music accompanying towards the end? It sounds a lot like Mogwai? But can’t find it?
Anyone knows the name of the song in 4:40?
I’ve been trying to find it also:c
I’ve watched this over 10 times, it’s going to be tough to top this video.
I think I can easily wet my pants…..one of the best I agreed.
FU@#……………!!! WHAT A SOUND!!!!!Love it when he backs off that throttle. Thank You Petrolicious, you’ve made my day.
A qualidade e charme dos vossos vídeos é simplesmente arrebatadora. Este vídeo e este carro são lindos.
Muitos parabéns. Por favor continuem o bom trabalho.
Spectacular! I had to watch it a few times because I really can’t concentrate on listening to both the commentary and the gorgeous images and sounds of the car. It would be awesome if there was a separate version of just the car, the driver and the sounds of that engine.
You got it 🙂
I ve never commented on a site before. Today I felt compelled. I ve watched this film 3 times in the last week. Its spellbinding. I had to say thank you.
Wow wow! The best video (by far) of this year! Keep up the good work petrolicious!!
On of the absolute best petrolicious videos so far! Love it!
Well… I have to say that this was the best yet.
To be honest, as amazing as the 250 GTO is, it was just wonderful listening to Mr. Hill speak with such sincerity and fondness for his father, as well as listening to him go through the gears with similar sincerity and fondness… all the while giving us a brief history lesson while we are effectively passengers along for the ride of a lifetime.
wow, great film. Agree that has to be the best Petrolicious film to date. Thanks.
Absolutely stunning video. The in car shots are fantastic and all credit to the owner for letting us view this
Top of the world ma.
You guys have outdone yourselves! The sounds from that car as it is being driven hard is just pure bliss! Thank you……..
One of the best video ever made congrats Petrolicious team, what a car!!!!, those cars are made to run, is good to hear that engine sound and the car running on the street, superb video with a sublime car, epic, 5 starts for it, my congratulations and respect too for the owner of this impressive Macchina the Cavallino Rampante looks amazing in this car.
The 250LM picture that I attach in this comment was on Ecuador many years ago and was auctioned on Christies last year.
Stunning car, wonderful story, amazing video and one of the best sounds on the planet.
If only sportscars produced today stirred the soul like the greats of the 60’s. Flowing bodywork, fantastic engines, REAL manual transmissions and no electronic nannys – having to learn the car.
Thank you for making this site and creating these videos!
Josh Clason is a master at capturing the essence of automobile enthusiasm. Audio wise, picture wise. Well done, Sir!
Wow. Just wow. That was tremendous, thank you very much Petrolicious and indeed Mr Hill for driving this car like an ace!
Wicked…..I immediately grabbed my headphones when I opened Petrolicious and seen the GTO video waiting to be heard.I knew it was going to be good.That V12 sound…Mama Mia!!I loved seeing the wiper arms lifting off the windshield at speed and Mr.Hill double clutching on the downshift.I have to bookmark this video.It’s classic.Thanks to everyone involved who brought us this video.
What a gorgeous video! Now my flat-6’s seem…inadequate.
The sound!!!! A symphony of cylinders… Epic 🙂
I especially like that nobody has brought up the value of this car, either in comments or in the video. Keep it classy! Best video, ever!
What a tremendous video of a truly sublime car. Always great videos from Petrolicious, but this is one is the best yet. Drive tastefully indeed.
What-a-sound!! V12 OMG!!
🙂 Great car. Great history. And my goodness what a fantastic sound! Petrolicious, you are second to none. I love this site!
FANTASTIC !!!AMAZING!!! WHAT A SOUND !!!!WHAT A CAR!!!
This video will become, like the GTO, a classic!!!
Wow! This is the best ever and I thought that some of your other videos couldn’t be topped -I eagerly wait for your videos every week-you guys amaze me
I don’t know what you guys have planned for the next week, but please postpone it & give me more videos & sound from this car. Anything else can wait.
Simplesmente “Finas iguarias!”
This was absolutely the best video ever posted by this site. Bravo. My 996 is totally jealous. Please keep them coming. Fantastic.
This is definately one of the great ones. The rarest car to grace this site, a good story, and a holiday to celebrate it on. Well done, Petrolicious.
Tears welled in my eyes watching this video.
It probably does not get better than experiencing this car, and I say probably only because there is but one other car that can equal it and that it is the 250 GTO Series 1.
Thank you Petrolicious and Derek Hill for this dream of a video, the best to date by far!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE product a video of on board raw footage!
Thank you Derek Hill and Petrolicious for honoring this beautiful car and the memory of the amazing Phil Hill.
I didn’t know I was capable of have multiple orgasms…
I dont think much has to be said about a Ferrari 250 GTO but i must say no video has giving me chills like seeing this car. This car is just the essence of pure 100\% car lust. The beauty of this machine is astonishing and then you mix that with the sound of the exhaust which sounds like pure euphoria. Im gonna be watching this video a few more times Im sure of it.
Unbelievably amazing video to watch and hear.
Fantastic – crank up those speakers! That windshield is amazing, the visibility out front just seems incredible.
