In 1966, the GTO became its own model. The GTO is widely credited as being one of the first true factory muscle cars. The GTO was the brain child of world famous manager and designer, John Delorean. The GTO name was borrowed from the Ferrari 250 GTO. Italian for Gran Turismo Omologato, which translates to officially certified for racing in the grand tourer class . Too avoid conflict GM executives said that the Pontiac GTO stood for Grand Tempest Option. One of the most definitive American performance cars of the decade.
