1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso: A Glimpse of Classic Grandeur on Auction

A vintage treasure, the 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, is up for grabs on Bring A Trailer. As of now, the bidding fervor has reached a stunning $1.2 million USD. This classic, one among the exclusive 350 produced, hails from an 18-month limited production period and bears the prestige of being the 32nd model. Initially gracing the roads in Milan, Italy in 1963, this Ferrari later voyaged to the U.S. in the 1980s.

Having made its debut at the 1962 Paris Motor Show, the 250 GT Lusso marked Ferrari’s final bow to the revered 250 series. This model, chassis 4421, shines with its pristine condition, thanks to consistent refurbishments over the decades, including a heart transplant with a 3.3-liter Colombo V12 engine from its 1965 sibling, the Ferrari 275 GTB.

Under its current owner since 2000, the Ferrari underwent a detailed restoration led by Patrick Ottis in California. This not only breathed new life into its mechanical prowess but also its aesthetics. From its original factory blue, the car transitioned to Garnet, then to a sleek black in the 1990s, followed by a 2014 paint correction. Its interiors now flaunt tan leather, while its 15” Borrani wire wheels gleam anew.

Complete with a spotless California title, refurbishment records, and spare parts, this auction offers a golden ticket to automotive enthusiasts to secure an impeccably restored piece of motoring legacy.
