1963 Ferrari 250 GTO
Considered by many to be the best and most beautiful sports car in the world, the Ferrari 250 GTO is also one of the rarest and most desirable. The last front-engined sports racing car that was competitive on the world’s stage, the GTO was billed to the FIA as a “continuation” of the 250 SWB, and its legendary initials stand for “Gran Turismo Omologato”. The Ferrari 250 GTO is fitted with a 2953 cc Tipo 168/62 ‘Colombo’ V-12 which produces 296 bhp and spins to 8,000 rpm. Very few cars approach the 250 GTO in collectability or value.
1958 Lotus Eleven
Lotus Elevens were unbeatable in their class when they were new, and remain fiercely competitive in historic racing. By mid-1958 about 270 Lotus Elevens and been sold, but the rear-engine Formula One revolution was under way and Chapman shifted his focus to that. Eminently successful and uniquely styled, Lotus Elevens are both exclusive and expensive. Cars with significant race of course command a significant premium, but also come with a solid chance of entry into almost any historic racing event in the world.

1965 Ford Lotus Cortina
In 1963, Ford of England wanted to go racing in Group 2, and engaged Colin Chapman to develop a competitive version of the little Cortina, powered by their 1588 cc twin-cam four-cylinder engine. 1,000 cars were needed for homologation. Chapman modified the cars with wider wheels, shorter front struts and trailing link rear suspension. For the engine, he boosted power from 78 bhp in stock form to 105 bhp. It became an icon of saloon car racing exceeding all expectations, in the hands of greats like Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jack Sears, Jackie Ickx and John Whitmore.
