1963 Ferrari 250GT Lusso Berlinetta

Pinin Farina updated the 250 GT with the GT Lusso or GTL. Introduced at the 1962 Paris show, the car had flowing lines and a fastback shape typical of the GT cars of the mid-1960s. The engine was the 250 GTO's Tipo 168 with 240 hp (179 kW; 243 PS) and three Weber 36DCS carburettors. 185VR15 Pirelli Cinturato tyres (CA67) were standard.

Built by Scaglietti, the Lusso continued through 1964 with few modifications. Rock star Eric Clapton owned one, and an example that had been owned by Steve McQueen sold at auction for $2.3 million on 16 August 2007.

It is remarkable that in 1964 this model took part in the race Targa Florio under number 120. The crew consisting of the pilot Baldassare Taomini and the navigator Pascal Tacchi in the struggle with Shelby Cobra, Porsche 904 and professional sportsmen finished worthy fourteenth among 64 starters (only 28 cars could make the finish).
