Like the Daytona and F40, the 250GT Lusso is one of those Ferraris with a strong aura built up around it. Contrary to the business model at the time, this Ferrari was not meant for racing. It was, however, one of the most elegant Ferraris ever to hit the road and drew the admiration of actor Steve McQueen, who's well known Marrone Metallizzato 250GT Lusso went up for sale at auction in 2007 and sold for over $2.3 million. Power came from a 3.0 liter "Colombo" 60 degree V12 engine producing 240 horsepower, backed up by a double wishbone suspension at the front and disc brakes all around. Inside, the car was not for everyone, as the fixed back seats required a certain driving position suited to more flexible owners. The pedals, as in many Ferraris of the time, were slightly adjustable. This Lusso for sale in New York is a fine example of this rolling sculpture from the 1960s.
1963 Ferrari 250GTL Lusso Gray with Red interior. Motor is completely rebuilt. Older restoration. Mechanically superb. One of only 350 250GTL's ever to be made. Here is your chance to own one for only $725,000.
At first glance I thought this might have been the 250GT Lusso featured on Chasing Classic Cars with Wayne Carini, but the car featured on the show had a tan interior. At $725,000, this is priced just about right for an older restoration Lusso. It's certainly not museum quality like the McQueen Ferrari, but for someone who wants to enjoy their high end classic car investment, you can't split the middle much better than with an example like this.
