1963 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso

Arguably the most beautiful product ever to carry the Maranello marque’s prancing horse emblem, the Ferrari 250GT Lusso Berlinetta debuted at the Paris Salon in October 1962. Styled by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti, the Lusso (luxury) combined race-track looks with new standards of passenger comfort. Beautifully proportioned, the new 250GT blended a low-slung nose with sculpted Kamm tail by means of some of the most exquisite lines yet seen on an automobile. Slim pillars and wide expanses of Read More

By the time the 250 PF Coupe arrived in 1959, Ferrari had refined its road models and, every year, the 250 improved as a practical car. It retained, however, the sporting heritage and the broad outline of the sports racing cars from which it derived. The 250 PF was not a cousin to the 250 Testa Rossa; it was its sister.

The 250 GT chassis was the model on which the leading Italian coachbuilders competed for Ferrari’s Read More

In October 1973 a new car was announced in Italy, launched by a company which was also new. That car was the Dino 308 GT4, but in spite of not being badged as such, it was clear to everyone it was a Ferrari through and through. Enzo Ferrari still doggedly hung on to the tenet that all production Ferraris worthy of the name should have engines with no less than 12 cylinders. The three-liter Dino had “only” Read More

1961 Ferrari 250 GT Fantuzzi NART Spyder

By the early ’60s, Scaglietti was at capacity building street cars for Ferrari, and so Fantuzzi, a Modena-based coachbuilder, built most of the bodies for Ferrari’s formula and sports/racing cars.
One of the exceptions was a car built to a special order

1970 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona

Worthy successor to the 275GTB/4, the 365GTB/4 Daytona debuted at the Paris Salon in 1968, with production proper commencing in the second half of 1969. Aggressively styled by Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti, Ferrari’s new supercar boldly re-stated the traditional sports car’s long hood, small cabin, short tail look in a way which suggested muscular horsepower à la AC Cobra while retaining all the elegance associated with the Italian coachbuilder’s work for Maranello.

1954-1955 Ferrari 2-Liter 500 Mondial

This delightful little Ferrari sports-racing car is a very low-mileage historic competition car from the Maranello marque. 0468MD comes from a European ownership which it entered as a two-owners-only vehicle in 1988 when it was purchased at auction in Monte Carlo.

The car had been supplied originally in late 1954 as-new to an Italian amateur owner-driver named Guido Petracchi who registered it as ER 22289, apparently in the former Italian colony on the Horn of Africa, Eritrea. He then Read More

1972 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder

I drove all night and most of the next day,

This unique GTS/4 Daytona Spyder is that most mythical of beasts, a genuine one-owner-from-new Daytona Spyder. We know of just one other, a North American-specification model resident in the U.S.

Ferrari sold just 121 Daytona Spyders. Left-hand drive chassis number 15845-the car offered here-is one of just 25 built to European specification (seven of which were right-hand drive). This car is one of two Read More

1972 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spyder

Ferrari’s fabulous fourcam V12 front-engined Berlinetta concept evolved during 1967 when the 3.3-liter fourcam 275GTB/4 model was just being introduced to the high performance car market. What would become the 365 GTB/4 “Daytona” was developed with the rapidity typical of Maranello, and subsequently made its public debut at the Paris Salon in October 1968. The car was an immediate success, and the press adopted the nickname “Daytona” for this new Ferrari in honor of the marque’s outright Read More

1964 Ferrari 250 Le Mans

By the end of 1963 it had become apparent to Ferrari that a successor to the 250 GTO would be needed in order to counter increasing opposition in the GT class, particularly from the massive onslaught of Carroll Shelby’s Cobras. It was thus that the new Ferrari 250 Le Mans was introduced to the public at the 1963 Paris Motor Show in October of that year.

Quite how Enzo Ferrari ever expected the car to be accepted by the Read More

1962 Ferrari 250GT SWB Competizione

The Paris Salon in 1959 saw the introduction of a Ferrari 250GT Short Wheelbase Berlinetta, a direct development of the Long Wheelbase car known as the Tour de France. Built on the 94.5-inch wheelbase chassis powered by the 3-liter V12 engine, the new and exciting Gran Turismo car was destined for many racing successes. Perhaps more than any other Ferrari, before or since, here was a car equally at home on a racetrack or road. A quick change of Read More
