But it was more remarkable was that it was able to do all this, driving and performing like a Ferrari, while in a cocoon of Luxury. Enter the Lusso, or Luxury as it means in English. Sitting in a Lusso you realise that this is more than simply a weekend car, and is truly something you can use every single day. However, what many people do not realise is that this was not Ferrari’s first Lusso, as the original car was actually launched 54 years earlier. 54!
The ‘62 Lusso was made for just a handful of years until 1964, and is considered to be one of the most elegant Ferrari’s ever made. In keeping with tradition, the design was done by Pininfarina, with the Coachwork by Scaglietti and between the dream trio, Ferrari made 351 cars over this short time. Power of course came courtesy of the “Colombo” engine, this time with 2,953cc.
Sadly, this was the last of the 250 models made by Ferrari, and was a truly magical time at Maranello. Cars which followed had larger engines, and as a result were prefixed with 275, but the 250 models will always have a special place in automotive history.
This car is currently available at Aventura Motors in New York, and is a 1963 version. Here is what they have to say about it:
This is a 1963 Ferrari GTL Lusso. One of 350 cars built (this car is # 120), this is an excellent example of a truly sought after and rare car. This older restoration is extraordinarily well preserved, paint and chrome still show very well, interior shows some Patina but is also excellent. Car comes with a Massini report . Recent service by a Marque expert.
Interior color: Black
Body style: Coupe
Engine: 12 Cylinder
Km : 3735
