There’s a half-scale model of GTO’s sixties-inspired Squalo being shown to the public at this year’s Goodwood Revival from 17 – 19 September at its stand located ‘Over the Road’.
Originally codenamed Moderna, it was back in June when the company released the first interior sketches of its retro-styled 4.0-litre quad-cam powered retro racer called ‘Squalo’ with some rave reviews from most of its onlookers.
Goodwood Revival will be the first time the public has been able to see the all-new bespoke sixties racer, which GTO says is bang on schedule at the company’s headquarters in Twyford, UK.
Power comes from GTO Engineering’s own quad-cam V12 engine delivering around 460bhp but has had significant aesthetics and light-weighting engineering upgrades including the surround of the carbs removed to ensure the open trumpets are clearly visible when the bonnet is lifted.
Simplicity continues throughout the interior and will include tactile buttons and switches rather than the generic touchscreen layout that seems to have penetrated every car that rolls off the production line these days.
The half-scale model on display at GTO Engineering’s stand has been used as a design tool to finalise both the scale, size, and design surfaces of the Squalo. Visitors to GTO Engineering’s stand at Goodwood Revival will also be able to see the Squalo’s incorporated front lights that hold both the main beam and indicators, as well as speak to the team about advancements of Squalo’s quad-cam V12 engine and transaxle gearbox (housing a five-speed manual gearbox and limited-slip differential), the latter currently in development with Hewland.
Mark Lyon, Founder and Managing Director of GTO Engineering said:
“We are thrilled to be able to showcase the first half-scale model of Squalo at Goodwood Revival this year. It will be the first time the scale model has been displayed in public and we couldn’t think of a better event to showcase it at than at Goodwood Revival – it is one of, if not the best celebration of motoring in the world. We look forward to welcoming enthusiasts and fans of Squalo to our stand over the course of the Revival weekend to see it come to life.”
The team at GTO Engineering will be at Goodwood Revival across the three-day event. It will also be showcasing its recently launched California Spyder Revival on the stand alongside a Ferrari XXXX, as well as a range of GTO Parts components, which are either machined, restored, or rebuilt on-site at GTO Engineering.
