This Ferrari becomes a work of art and can never be imitated again.
The Italian courts have handed down a sentence and replicas or reproductions of the iconic 250 GTO of the famous Italian car brand can no longer be made
Becoming a myth admired in any sector is often accompanied by numerous attempts at copying or imitation. And that is what has happened to Ferrari on several occasions. One of them has occurred recently, when the Italian brand informed a Bologna court that a company in the city of Modena planned to produce replicas of its classic 250 GTO.
The petition that Ferrari presented to the Italian Justice requested that their design and intellectual property rights over the car be recognized. After that, the court has ruled in favor of the “Cavallino Rampante” manufacturer and has considered the 250 GTO as a work of art that cannot be imitated or reproduced.
In this way, a historical jurisprudence is generated that is sure to lead to companies that intend to take advantage of the pull of such an emblematic model more than once.
It is an iconic model of the sixties of which only 36 units were manufactured and its market value is enormous. In fact, in August last year it became the most expensive production car in the world after more than 40 million euros were paid for a 1962 unit at auction.
