FERRARI ICONS: 250 GT LUSSO
When it made its debut at the 1962 Paris Salon, the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso was unveiled as the final iteration of the 250 GT series of cars.
The Lusso, which means “Luxury” in Italian, was positioned between the more hardcore racing models and ultra-luxury variants within the Ferrari lineup.
It aimed to offer the experience of top-tier Ferrari sports car performance while being well-appointed with an arsenal to combat the demands of daily use.
The 250 Lusso is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cars to be adorned with the prancing horse badge.
Its sporty nature is derived from the use of a Short Wheel Base (SWB) chassis, shared with some of the previous competition cars, and a V12 engine fueled by three Weber carburettors.
The overall design elements of the car were ground-breaking for their time, and the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso would soon become one of the most recognisable automobiles in the world.
Exquisitely proportioned, the GT/L had an elegant silhouette which comprised of its elongated profile, curvy fenders, slim pillars, truncated rear and charismatic three-piece front bumper.
The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso was imagined by Pininfarina and brought to life by Carrozzeria Scaglietti under the direction of Enzo Ferrari.
While the GT/L was intended to be a road-going grand tourer in every sense of those words put together, many owners ended up outfitting their cars for racing anyway. This is because the GT/L inherently possessed race car DNA, which is shared with the 250 GTO, including its SWB, disc brakes, suspension, and engine, making it a viable track toy when the latter was not an option.
Though well-received and sought after, the GT/L would ultimately have a brief production run spanning just 18 months, between the years 1962 and 1964, with only 350 examples made. At the tail end of 1964, the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, and by extension, the entire 250 GT line, would be succeeded by the incoming Ferrari 275 GTB.
This would by no means signify the end for the GT/L, as it has become a hot collector’s item in recent times.
The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso is the quintessential 60’s sports car.
Driving any Ferrari from the same era is a tremendously special experience, of which few of us have had the privilege.
The 250 is rare, expensive and highly collectable, but its value is based on the engineering, remarkable style and elegance, coupled with the exceptional performance and handling of that particular era, all of which made it ahead of its time when the car was launched in 1962.

Interesting blog post. The things i would like to bring up is that laptop or computer memory has to be purchased when your computer is unable to cope with everything you do with it. One can put in two RAM boards with 1GB each, in particular, but not certainly one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should make sure the maker’s documentation for one’s PC to make sure what type of storage is essential.
I like this website so much, saved to my bookmarks.
