The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT was the first Ferrari with two seats that was produced on a large scale. The car featured a Tipo 250 single overhead camshaft V12 engine with 3.0 Liter capacity. 957 examples of 1960 Ferrari 250 GTs were crafted, featuring four different speeds as well as overdrive. This very special classic Ferrari used the latest trends and technologies available at the time, with the objective to present flawless aerodynamics and the most elegant body. The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT was introduced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 1960, a departure from Ferrari’s usual unveilings at major car shows. The model exemplified Ferrari’s first car with increased legroom for adults in the rear seats, hence the 2+2 designation. The body design was particularly smooth, built on a 2,600 mm wheelbase, featuring a spacious cabin section with thin screen pillars, and a leather-trimmed interior.
Many possibilities were offered to Ferrari’s clientele to customize their vehicles.
