Interesting car and by all accounts Mr Moal is a craftsman.

I like the car in a funny sort of way.

If a 250GTE was destroyed for the creation of this machine I am trully sorry.
Hopefully not. Preferably not.

It has some undeniable '50s Ferrari beauty in the lines, no question about it. If a GTE was sacrificed for the Gatto to come to fruition, surely Grimsley and Moal didn't pick a perfectly good 250 2+2 as a donor. I appreciate the desire to preserve Ferraris and their originality. But Ferrari itself has executed a few mashups in its day.

I need an Aventador!
