As series of cars go, I don't believe that any can match the pure beauty, speed and desirability of the Ferrari 250 line. The variations are seemingly endless; from the iconic Testarossa, the stunning GTO, elegant and brutal SWB in racing to the simply gorgeous Lusso and California Spider models, I can think of no other line of cars that is so perfectly designed - or so valuable. Perhaps only eclipsed by a few rare Bugattis the value of even the lowliest of the 250 line is simply staggering these days, and the most expensive of the line nearly matches the GDP of some African nations. That's the price you'll pay for perfection:

I was lucky enough (or not, depending on how you look at it) to have had a 250 GT Lusso in my family at one point. Won over a drunken card game in the late 1960s, my grandfather enjoyed that car for many years before financial difficulties in the 1970s saw him sell it. At the time, he just about doubled his money on the car and considered himself lucky. Today, he would have seen a return in the neighborhood of 3,750% return on his investment with no end in sight. And the Lusso is one of the least expensive models right now - jump into a 250 Cabriolet like this, and you're set back 1.5 million dollars. And this isn't even the prettiest of the 250s! But such is the craziness that surrounds the mystical marque of Ferrari, so sit back and enjoy the view.
