The story centers on two car thieves, brothers, who journey to the south of France for new opportunities and wind up in the cross hairs of the local crime boss. Andrew and Garrett Foster (Scott Eastwood and Freddie Thorp) are thieves who specialize in luxury cars, only the most expensive cars. They’ve been hired to steal a gorgeous Bugatti 1937 valued million euros, so they head to the south of France for the job. But they get caught, and Jacomo Morier (Simon Abkarian), the local crime boss who owns the Bugatti, doesn’t take it lightly. In exchange for their lives the two brothers will have to steal a car from Max Klemp (Clemens Schick), Morier’s arch-rival, and not any car, Morier wants them to steal Klemp’s 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, his most prized car.—Teaser-Trailer.com
The Ferrari 250 GTO in the movie is not one of the genuine 36 250 GTO’s. Instead it is a replica, based on a Ferrari 250 GTE, chassis number 4861GT, owned by a French collector. This is unsurprising as a real car of such used in the film would be valued at several millions: the current record for world’s most expensive car was set a year after the films release (2018: a 1963 250 GTO (chassis 4153GT) sold in a private sale for $70 million; and another in auction (GTO 3413GT) at some $48,000,000): prior to the film being made, a bid of $34,000,000 secured one in 2014.
