Ferrari 250 GTO Review 2023

A modern Ferrari changes its mood depending on where you point the manettino switch on the steering wheel. 

We drove a road-spec 250 SWB featuring the mid-range 3.5-litre V12. You can downsize to a lighter 3.0-litre engine or upgrade to a lustier 4.0-litre, if you prefer. 

Likewise, there’s a choice of gearboxes with either four or five speeds, this test car featuring the latter.
