Some people are easier to shop for than others. Connoisseurs of fine wines, cognac, whisky, cigars and any of a dozen or more different forms of the finer things in life will be easy to please come the holiday season. Lovers of classic cars – be they owners themselves or simply enthusiasts – have no shortage of gift options available to them as well. Case in point the latest collection from GTO London.
Now those three letters will be immediately recognized by Ferrari fans as having adorned some of the most devastatingly quick vehicles ever produced in Maranello: the '60s-era 250 GTO, the 288 GTO of the '80s and the latest 599 GTO. These accessories for the motoring aficionado may not be licensed by the factory, but they certainly carry the same spirit.
GTO London is an offshoot of GTO Engineering, one of the world's experts in classic Ferrari restoration. Their range includes such items as cufflinks, wallets, tie pins and – suitably enough – keychains, of course. They're crafted from leather, silver, gold and even reclaimed "real Ferrari metal" from GTO's restoration projects.
