Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso Competizione
Introduced in 1962, the 1964 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso Competizione is widely considered a landmark design and has often been named one of the most beautiful cars ever built – no small feat when considering the decades-long tradition of stunning Pininfarina creations. The Lusso is everything a street Ferrari should be – fast, nimble, and comfortable with sub-seven-second zero to 100 km/h acceleration and a top speed of about 240 km/h (150 mph). Only about 350 examples were built in a short two-year production run.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2009 at Ferrari S.p.A., Fiorano Modenese, Modena.
321 bhp, 2,953 cc overhead camshaft alloy block and head V-12 engine, four-speed gearbox, independent front suspension with A-arms, coil springs, and telescopic shock absorbers, live rear axle, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 2,400 mm (94.5 in.)
