Italian Court Rules Ferrari 250 GTO a “Work of Art” protecting it from reproduction

After years of unauthorized reproduction and replication of the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO, an Italian court in Bologna has finally ruled it a “work of art”

In 2015, international fine artist Alex G Cao released his homage to one of the world’s most regarded classic cars: The Ferrari 250 GTO.

In 2019, Italy has decided that CAO and many others were onto something special.  As reported by Jonathan Ho at Luxuo, the famous Ferrari is now reserved as a “Work of Art” with only 36 ever made.  No other vehicle can be created that copies exactly this specific vehicle.  Read more at LUXUO.
