The beauty of the world’ most expensive car, laid bare.
In the Plain Bodies series, London-based digital production studio INK recreates some of the most iconic racing cars in the world in a digital medium. Presented against ethereal white backdrops, the pure white cars showcase the elegance of their dynamic lines and flowing curves. Thankfully, the INK team also included the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO in the series. Introduced in 1962, the 250 GTO went on to become one of Ferrari’s most successful cars and a highly sought-after collector’s car. In 2016, a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO that had won the 1964 Tour de France Automobile and a forth place in the 1963 24 Hours of Le Mans sold in a private sale for $70 million. Thus, this gem became the most expensive car in the world, toppling the former number one, another Ferrari 250 GTO.
Plain Bodies reproduces the famous car in great detail, but removes any colors or racing livery from its stylish body. As a result, the viewer can admire the 250 GTO’s beauty in all its glory. Automotive fans and Ferrari lovers can easily get their hands on this version of the beloved racing car. INK offers the design as a high-quality art paper print. You can choose the angle from a range of three options and you can also choose the print size. While the 16.5 x 23.4 inches print costs around $70, the 23.4 x 33.1 inches one costs around $210. The Plain Bodies series also includes other world-renowned cars, including the Porsche 911, the Ferrari 330 P4, and the Jaguar D-Type. Photographs© INK.
