Ferrari 250 GTE II Fine art Photography. Hundreds of photos assembled together to create a vision. Photo credits "Ferrari 250 GTE II" Signed & Limited Edition Print.
Until 1960, Ferrari had never had a 2 + 2 model. It had only received special orders on certain models such as the Ferrari 195, Ferrari 212, Ferrari 340 and Ferrari 342. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 1960, Ferrari presented its 250 GT 2 +2, known as 250 GTE, its first real 4 seats. Ferrari produced 950 units, 6 units per day between 1960 and 1963, making the 250 GTE Ferrari the most marketed.
Designed by Pininfarina, the Ferrari 250 GTE was based on the 250 GT Coupe, but 300mm longer, 60mm wider and, perhaps the most surprising, 50mm lower and only 80 kg heavier. The cockpit was quite spacious. However, it was necessary to advance the front seats to provide a reasonable place for the legs in the rear. The rear passengers, however, had a well-padded leather seat, a central armrest and even an ashtray. In 1964, Ferrari replaced the Ferrari 250 GTE and its 3-liter V12 engine by the Ferrari 330 America, equipped with a 4-liter V12, sold only 50 units.
Automotive photography is a world - a culture - apart. The success of photography in an exceptional car is based on how light responds to angles, textures and color. It took Amaury Soares hundreds of cliches to create a unique image of this Ferrari 250 GTE in order to extract the essence and give it a new intensity, a new dimension at the height of its prestique. Signed and numbered art photography. Limited edition.
Photographs and art prints are available as photography on art paper, Fine art prints, and plexiglas. Several sizes are available according to customer needs: interior decoration, an exhibition, an event, etc.

The work of art shows all it erstwhile, thanks to a highlight without no other similar of Amaury Soares’s art photo car !
Composed with hundreds of photos, his photographic assemblies about symbolic cars put forward the history and all the peculiarities which characterize these models. Amaury Soares does not present us a simple automobile photography but the idea that we are made of these cars, all that inspires us, as a picture that we would take in our spirit.
«The idea is to recreate a mental vision of a car. When we evoke a model of car, there is not a single image which comes to the spirit, there is a stream of images which comes into the head. I freeze this mental process in a single picture, as the result we have a photography which goes out directly of our imagination.»
The art photographies of Amaury Soares on the theme of the automobile were revealed for the first time in 2016 during the autoshow Retromobile in Paris.
His work is exhibited in different art galleries across Europe, but some of his pieces are also part to many European and international art collections (in France Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland Switzerland Portugal Brazil USA …). His last exhibition was in Singapore.
