The Ferrari 250 GTO, one of the iconic cars of the Maranello-based car plant, has officially been named a work of art with legal protection for its design. The June 20 ruling by the Bologna court came after a petition by Ferrari to protect its design.

The Turin industrial union (UIT) notes that this is the first time a car has been granted copyright and thus become official a work of art.
