Comments:

The gorgeous Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Berlinetta is one of the most exquisitely

proportioned and most beautiful of all Pininfarina styling creations on the

legendary front-engine Ferrari 250 GT chassis. These were classic, high-

performance GT road cars with the difference, for they combined prodigious

power and speed with the highest contemporary levels of elegance and

comfortable accomodations for their passengers. The prototype of the new 250

GT Lusso was launched at the Paris Motor Show in October 1962 representing

Pininfarina's zenith and final evolution of the Ferrari's legendary 250 model.


The Lusso was the last Ferrari model equipped with the legendary Gioacchino

Colombo- designed 3.0 litre V12 engine Tipo 168 which only has been supplied

to the Lusso and the Ferrari 250 GT Short Wheel Base. With three Weber

carburettors as opposed to the six used on the racing versions, the unit used in

the Lusso produced about 250 bhp and was capable of propelling the car to a

top speed of 240 km/h. The new 250 GT combined gorgeous styling with a

leather-trimmed interior and all the race-bred V12 performance that continues

to symbolise Ferrari still today.


The Lusso was manufactured from 1963 until 1964, a very short period with

merely 350 cars produced.


The Lusso on offer has been originally delivered in Italy to the market

dealer Crepaldi in Milano. Its original beautiful and rare  colour specification has

been celeste with the "pelle Nuvola" (blue) hide interior which never have been

changed. It has spent over a decade in one of Italy's top three car collections

and has seen very little use. ASI certified (the Italian Classic Car authority) and

with the English registration it offers good potential for future appreciation and

enjoyment. The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso especially in a colour scheme which

highlights the elegance of Pininfarina's timeless design, is never out of place

whether on a concourse lawn or any sophisticated garage.


I only could recommend to have a look to this fantastic Lusso in its original

and wonderful colour specification having been always perfectly maintained in

one of the most interesting Ferrari collections in the world.
