This is a Dion Pears (1929-1985) original oil on canvas artwork, signed lower left by the artist.
It depicts the John Surtees and Mike Parkes piloted Ferrari 250 GTO competing at the 1962 Paris 1000 km race. The pairing finished the race in second place in chassis #3647.
The Ferrari 250 GTO broke the record for the most valuable car to have gone under the hammer. It was was set in June 2018 when a 1963 250 GTO (chassis 4153GT) was sold in a private sale for $70 million.
Beautifully framed and signed by the artist.
In excellent condition ready to hang on your wall, please see photos for confirmation.
