Nestled in the Royal County of Berkshire, England, is the Saxon Village of Twyford. Once home to William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania, USA, Twyford now houses the workshops of GTO Engineering. Beautifully renovated historic farm buildings are an ideal setting to fettle vehicles bearing the emblem of the prancing horse.
Founded in the early 1980s by Mark Lyon, a specialist subcontractor who worked for some of the most prestigious Ferrari dealers and specialists, GTO Engineering soon built an outstanding reputation, which spread far and wide as the business blossomed. In the ’90s, the parts operation was commenced to serve the growing demand for increasingly rare components. By the end of the century, GTO was offered the wonderful opportunity to buy Tony Merrick’s operation in rural Berkshire, where the company remains to this day, servicing, race/tour preparing, inspecting classic Ferraris and making, sourcing and selling rare Ferrari parts.
