is being honored at a gala for the san marino motors classics on 6/10/17 so i need to write a short introduction for her. this is what i am writing. let me know if you like it.
the 250 gt lusso is widely regarded as one of the most elegant and timeless designs by pininfarina. introduced in 1962. the 250 gt berlinetta lusso was ferrari's latest intermediate model, a vehicle to bridge the gap between competition racers and luxuriously appointed 2+2 coupe's. 351 examples were built between 1963 and late 64. the ferrari lusso had allured clients from all over including actor steve mcqueen.
chassis 5847 gt was delivered in düsseldorf, germany in february 1964. through out the years, it has made its journey through sweden, rome, holland and all over europe before crossing the sea to america. this car has competed in numerous races and rallies throughout its life. its past owners would set up the car for both racing or road use. in 2015, it finally rested in the care of current owner david lee in california. due to this car's racing and rally history, he took the liberty to restore it to a full competition set up from its prior semi-competition state. to david's knowledge, there are only 4 existing examples of the 250 lusso competition. in 2017, david had ferrari custom spec his f12tdf to be the modern interpretation of this lusso competition which will be showing side by side tomorrow. ferrari liked the idea so much that they named the new car #f12tdfdskl
with david's initials along with a dedication plaque in the car. swipe left for more pictures. #classicferrari #vintageferrari #lusso #enzoferrari #stevemcqueen
