CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Berlinetta offered here cannot be surpassed in perfection. The draft, which Pininfarina worked out for Ferrari and which could be admired in Paris in the autumn 1962 on the fair, changed the Ferrari world forever. This lead to the Lusso being considered as the most elegant Ferrari to have been built so far. A reputation which he can easily defend today.
The entire history of the Ferrari can be traced and documented without any gaps since its delivery to Bologna. Between 2014 and 2016, the 250 GT/ L was uncompromisingly restored and has since been in collector's hands.
After the restoration, the car was transferred to Modena in October 2016 and received the appraisal for Ferrari Classiche certification (Red Book).
The car is in first class "concours condition" both visually and technically. This car belongs in a world class collection as one of the 350 built.
At the latest "Broad Arrow" auction in the USA on 17.08.2023, the 250 GT Lusso showed a clear upward trend in value and was auctioned for 2,810,000.00 dollars.

The body design was traditionally created by the coachbuilder Pininfarina and built by Carrozzerie Scaglietti. A prototype of the 250 GT Lusso was first presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1962. Apart from a few small details, the prototype did not differ from the production version.
As comfortable but also radical sports cars were in demand in the 1960s, the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso offered everything the heart desired. This made it the perfect sports car of its time. Ferrari did not skimp on details, which meant that this model had a kerb weight of 1,020 to 1,320 kg.
The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso was not originally intended for competition at sporting events, but it did take part in the Targa Florio and the Tour de France, among others.
Due to the small number of 3590 250 GT Lusso produced, only a few people had the pleasure of owning this model. Famous names such as Battista Pininfarina and Steve McQueen were two of them.
