The Gran Turismo version of the 250 P, the 250 LM, which was unveiled in 1963, was the first rear-engined car developed for customer teams, but the FIA refused to type-approved it as a GT ( it was instead admitted as a prototype) due to the insufficient number of exemplars built. This prompted Enzo Ferrari to return the competitor's license and compete under the official US colours ( white and blue) of the North American Racing Team (NART) for last two races of the Formula 1 World Championship in 1964, which was won by John Surtees. The car triumphed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965 with Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory, taking home the last overall win of Ferrari at the iconic French endurance race.
