A UK-based Ferrari specialist and engineering firm, which creates classic Ferrari components from original drawings with modern machining and quality control, as well as preserving and restoring original Ferrari parts, has released a new video to explain the attention-to-detail and meticulous quality in its aftermarket Ferrari parts production.
Highlighting the entire process to craft aftermarket parts, from CAD design, CNC machining, finishing and quality control, the new video also looks at GTO Engineering’s engine building suite as well as restoration of old parts.
It also incorporates a range of Ferraris GTO Engineering has been working on and using components supplied by GTO Parts, including a 1964 Ferrari Lusso, a 1974 Ferrari 365 GT4 BB, a 1990 Ferrari F40 and a 2011 599 GTO.
GTO Parts supplies a range of aftermarket Ferrari components around the world, from early-Sixties cars to modern day supercars, including limited-run models and GTO editions.
GTO Parts was created by founder Mark Lyon in 1996 due to demand for his own restorations at GTO Engineering and market needs from private collector car customers and other specialists.
He said: “We started GTO Parts over 20 years ago. Back when I was restoring cars in the Nineties and early Noughties, I found a lack of aftermarket options for parts.
“It wasn’t as simple as calling a supplier to buy off-the-shelf parts, so I thought I’d respond to the market and start creating parts myself.
“We’ve come a long way since then, most notably is that rather than hand drawing parts or using the old ones as a reference, everything we do is drawn in CAD.
“This is then what we check against for quality control and have a specialist machine to ensure each part conforms to our standards.”
