The automobile was a class-winner at Le Mans in 1961, serving to solidify the 250’s standing as the last word basic automobile funding (examples promote at public sale for upwards of $8m).

Maybe conscious of the hefty funding wanted to get its enterprise off the bottom, Forge Design has gone all-out for applied sciences that haven’t but hit the mainstream. These embody a hydrogen-burning engine and composite bodywork.

The studio is utilizing the idea to advertise its abilities at conceptual design, rendering, and modelling. 

The Ventidue makes for a hanging calling card, but it surely’s not the one 250 GT SWB restomod on the market – British specialist producer RML can construct a bespoke ‘Quick Wheelbase’ proper now, for round £1.6m.
