It also marked the end of a golden era of Ferrari
production that included the iconic 250 GTO. Having passed through several hands that all took great care preserving the car, in 2010 it was treated to a full rotisserie restoration in Italy consisting of a thorough mechanical rebuild and a brand new interior of proper black leather. The restoration also included a high quality bare-metal repaint in the car's original blue metallic color, Azzuro Metallizzato. On June 28, 2011, the beautifully restored Ferrari, with its original matching numbers engine and original color scheme, was issued a Ferrari Classiche certification.
