Description of the original vehicle: Finished in the striking Laystall colours (pale green), this was the first right-hand driver 250 GTO. Originally ordered for Stirling Moss to race for the UDT-Laystall team, but after his career-ending crash at Goodwood, it was raced by Innes Ireland instead on August 18, 1962 with start number #15 to an outright victory in the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood. That is the car that M-247 presents. In retrospect, Ireland mesmerized: “We picked up the car at Maranello, drove it directly to Goodwood and immediately after a plug- and a tire-change we started a one-hour testing on the track.“ Chassis 3506 was raced successfully by various famous drivers, including Willy Mairesse (Le Mans Trial), Masten Gregory (Silverstone), Innes Ireland (Le Mans, Brands Hatch, Goodwood), and Gunther Philipp, an Austrian owner and racecar driver, who had chassis 3505GT repainted red and campaigned the car triumphantly in Vienne GP, Austria GP, and Preis von Wien, GT race. In 2012, the car was acquired by the current custodian for a reputed 35 million dollars, which at the time was the highest bid ever known to have been paid for a car.
