Ferrari 250 Europa GT
The 250 Europa was the first road-going Ferrari identified by the now legendary 250 series nomenclature, and it is also widely regarded as the first true Ferrari Gran Turismo, solidifying the marque’s longstanding relationship with Pinin Farina, who built most of the bodies. Even though these cars were marketed as expensive and luxurious GT machines, their advanced specifications and sleek lines helped assure Ferrari’s reputation for performance above all else. The Europa was the only Ferrari 250 to carry the Aurelio Lampredi-designed V12, which was originally designated for racing use and produced over 200 hp.
220 bhp, 2,953 cc 60-degree single overhead cam V12 engine, four-speed all synchromesh gearbox, independent front suspension with coil springs and A-arms, live rear axle with semi-elliptic springs, Houdaille shocks and hydraulic drum brakes all around. Wheelbase: 2,800 mm (110").
