The Ferrari 250 GTO is often referred to as one of the finest automobiles created since the invention of the gas-powered engine. From the styling that gets every single curve just right, to the bulletproof V12 engine that can run during the entirety of a 24-hour endurance race and still have the ability to go for hundreds more miles, the Ferrari 250 GTO is automotive perfection.

Petrolicious posted a video today that gives everyone the chance to really see what it is like to drive the iconic Ferrari. In the video, Derek Hill gets behind the wheel of a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO Series II and he has every right to be there; his father was Phil Hill (1927-2008), who drove the exact car in the video, chassis #5571, to victory in numerous races. Derek also has his own set of accolades, including winning the Ferrari Challenge International Championship in 1995 and the Formula Dodge West Coast in 1996.
