Ferrari is surely the most revered name in motor racing and its 250GTO the most fabled (and valuable) of all its racing cars. At its heart lies a 3-litre, V12 engine designed by the legendary Gioacchino Colombo. The pre-eminent restorers and rebuilders of these classic powertrains is GTO Engineering. And when GTO Engineering wanted a new supplier for engine blocks and cylinder heads, it was to Alcon that it turned.
These major engine parts are used not just for ultra-rare GTOs, but potentially all Ferrari road and racing cars built using an engine that was in production for 20 years from its introduction in 1947. We can, therefore produce the engine in a number of different block and head specifications.
Moreover, while the heads and blocks we make must be indistinguishable to the original on the outside, advances in metallurgy, machining, combustion chamber and component design means we are able to produce parts to a far higher quality than the original, giving not just better performance but increased durability too.
