Ferrari 250 Lusso
1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L or 'Lusso' finished in Grigio with Rosso Hide. Fantastic overall condition and complete with Classiche Certification.
The Ferrari 250 GT/L or 'Lusso' is one of the most beautifully proportioned Ferraris ever designed by Pininfarina. Sitting between the 250 SWB and GTE 2+2, the Lusso was a car designed to encompass all aspects of the 250 range; sports car performance and GT luxury in one package.
The Lusso was revealed in 1962 at the Paris Motor Show and was instantly desired by celebrity petrol heads such as Steve McQueen and Eric Clapton. Demand outstripped supply massively, with only 350 Lussos being produced from 1962-1964; the 250 GT/L was always destined to be a future classic.
Translating to English as 'Luxury,' the Lusso's cabin beautifully compliments that curvacious exterior with extensive leather, chrome and the now infamous Nardi wood-rimmed wheel dominating the environment.
The 250 GT/L is powered by a 3.0 litre Columbo V12, benefiting from triple Weber carbs producing around 240 bhp. Although performance was not the key objective of the Lusso, it still lived up to the high standards of other 250-series Ferraris, capable of speeds around 150mph.
The example that we are offering was delivered in September 1963 directly from the factory in Maranello, and is one of the finest examples that we have seen. Finished in Grigio with Rosso hide, the car comes complete with Classiche certification, confirming that it is matching numbers, to completement the fantastic condition in which it sits.
The 250 GT/L is one of the finest Ferraris ever to leave the gates at Maranello; one of the first usable 60s Ferraris and to this day possibly the most beautiful. With only 350 being produced and other 250 values continuing to rise, the Lusso is not only a fantastic Ferrari to own, but also sits as a real investment prospect.
