Architecture, football and vintage cars are just some of the passions of Betirri Bengtson, a native Mexican now living in Houston, Texas.
A practising architect, he has also received various artwork commissions: his bodiless footballer players featuring in a series of paintings to celebrate the success of Brazil’s Sport Club Internacional, in association with Reebok; a depiction of the evolution of the Lamborghini marque, from 350GT to Aventador for the Houston Lamborghini Festival; and a huge 12x35ft mural at a Texas sports complex.
With only 39 Ferrari 250 GTOs ever produced, this image is almost certainly the closest you'll come to being the owner of this beautiful, rare and highly coveted sports car.
