The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, a Very Beautiful Luxury Sports Car
In the early 1960’s Ferrari came out with the 250 GT Lusso, and Enzo Ferrari meant it to be more of a luxury GT (grand tourer) rather than a sports car like the 250 GT SWB (berlinetta), it was and remains so today.
While its interior was more spacious than that of the 250 GT, the Lusso seated just 2 people, unlike the 250 GT/E, which was the 1st production 4-seater Ferrari.
The Lusso dates back to the early 1960’s, and it comes with idiosyncrasies, I know 1st hand, as I owned 2 of them ‘back in the day.’
For example, try to switch something On/Off inside the car is challenging if you do not know what each button and switch does. They all look the same and are not labeled.
Make the wrong choice, and instead of turning on the wipers, you turn off the fuel pump and stall your luxury Ferrari in the street.
Strangely, the Lusso is powered by the famous V12 engine, but it is not really fast or loud, it is beautiful though.
Overall, for a ’60’s Ferrari, the 250 GT Lusso is spacious, comfortable and easy to drive. And again it was very luxurious and stylish then as it is now.
Below is a utube review by Sergiu Tudose from Dubai, as he explains the history and the current value, check it out, you will get the picture.
I sold 1 of mine (the feature picture, and the only Orange Ferrari I ever saw) to a doctor friend for $5,o00.00 in Y 1969, today it would fetch about $3,000,000
