    Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Scaglietti Prototype - 1962


    Ferrari 250 GT Lusso.jpg


    Chassis n° : 4053 GT


    In late 1962 Ferrari launched its latest model the 250 GT/L, with the L indicating Lusso, Italian for Luxury. This was its last production 3 litre Ferrari and 351 cars were

    Ferrari made between 1962 and 1964. A Lusso prototype was first displayed at the 49' Paris Auto Salon in October 1962 and arrived at the new Portes de Versailles venue mid-way through the show on the second to last day.


    This car was metallic grey, with twin tail lights on each side. According to Ferrari Classiche, this car, 4053 GT was originally grey (grigio) and was delivered to Franco Britannic Autos (F.B.A.) here in Paris, in December 1962, having been completed in September 1962.

    'Car and Driver' in May 1964 stated ... 'its proportions approach perfection'


    Esteemed Ferrari historian and sales manager of F.B.A. in the 1960s, the late Jess Pourret, corresponded with the current owner, stating that 4053 GT was in fact the Paris Salon motor show car and provided detail and photographs of its early life in France, showing the car featuring its distinctive four rear tail lights.

    In his 1980 'The Ferrari Legend: The Road Cars', the much respected

    Ferrari historian Antoine Prunet states that the Lusso Prototype in both the marketing materials and at the Paris Salon is 'probably 4053 GT'.

    Other, more recently written reports, suggest that the other prototype 3849 GT was in fact the Paris Salon car. That prototype is understood to be mid-rebuild in Germany.

    According to Pourret, 4053 GT was in France for its first 10 years and sadly set on fire as an insurance scam in 1973. The car was then in storage in Holland and bought by an investor in the US in the 90s, who subsequently lost interest in the project.

    Having owned and tinkered with over 50 Ferrari 250 GTs including several Lussos, in 2007, the current owner recognised the significance of the car and had the understanding, experience and the resources to restore the car.

    He sent the original matching numbers engine block to Roelofs Engineering for a full rebuild and it was fitted with high compression pistons.

    The car was registered in the UK in February 2016.

    Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SEFAC Comp. - 1961


    Ferrari 250 GT SWB.jpg


    Chassis n° :  3005GT

    Stand : Lukas Huni


    When Enzo Ferrari began building automobiles in his own name in 1948, the purpose was to be active in racing. He had already proven his ability to organise and manage a racing team, the Scuderia Ferrari, which had run the factory Alfa Romeo cars in the Thirties, as well as his ability to race a variety of race cars in the Twenties.


    Success came quickly to the new team at Maranello with wins in the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio. In 1949 FERRARI again captured the Targa Florio and Mille Miglia, won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and Spa Francorchamps. And in 1952 Alberto Ascari won the first Grand Prix Driver's World Championship. Between 1953 and 1961, seven of nine Constructors' Championships were won by FERRARI. FERRARI was also successful in supplying cars to privateers who were winning races all over the world.


    By 1959, FERRARI was firmly established as world's foremost manufacturer of Sports and Racing cars, and the immense success of the 250 GT (4 times Winner of the Tour de France) and the 250 Testa Rossa had cemented the foundation of the magic racing image of FERRARI. A new model was in preparation for 1960 that should continue the tradition of the Berlinetta Tour de France, but should be even faster and even more agile. Hence was created the new 250 GT Berlinetta Short Wheelbase, featuring a revised V12 3-litre engine with outside plugs and increased power, wheelbase shortened from 260 cm to 240 cm with yet another timeless coachwork design by Pininfarina.


    The 250 GT Berlinetta Short Wheelbase was divided into two separate models - the Steel (or road) version (with body made of steel) and the Competition version, obviously destined for Competition, featuring lighter aluminium coachwork, outside petrol filler cap, high-performance engine and optimised suspension.


    This particular car, 250 GT Berlinetta Short Wheelbase SEFAC Competition 1961 Chassis No. 3005GT 1961, is one of the rare last SEFAC Competition versions, featuring a thinner-gauge aluminium body, a thinner-gauge chassis specification, an even more highly developed competition engine and various other features aimed at making this last version most competitive.

    3005GT is a highly important member of the FERRARI history for the following reasons:

    • last-produced SEFAC (with Tipo 539/61 chassis and all SEFAC features)
    • official NART Team Car
    • Winner of the 1961 1000 km of Paris with both Pedro and Ricardo Rodriguez one of the cars officially modified by the FERRARI factory to 6 carburettors

    Ferrari 250 Europa Pinin Farina Coupé - 1954


    Ferrari 250 Europa.jpg


    Chassis n° : 0351EU

    Stand : Lukas Huni


    In the mid-Fifties, FERRARI had become world-famous as a manufacturer of sports and racing cars. All the knowledge gained on the track was immediately applied to production cars making them successful with owners and enthusiasts alike.


    Introduced to the public at the 1953 Paris Automobile Salon, alongside the 375 America, the 250 Europa was the first road-going Ferrari identified by the now legendary 250 series nomenclature and the only 250 to carry the Aurelia Lampredi-designed V12 engine which was the chosen engine for FERRARI early sports racing cars, producing over 200 HP. It was the 250 Sport, driven to victory by Bracco/Rolfo in the 1952 Mille Miglia, which demonstrated the engine's capabilities and prompted FERRARI to use it in its first luxury production sports car. Lampredi's race-proven long-block V12 engine endowed the 250 Europa with phenomenal performance - the 250 Europa was capable of 220 kph top speed and an acceleration of under 9 seconds from 0-100 kph.


    All cars were entirely hand-built, and no two were exactly alike, new knowledge and experience with the racing cars being applied instantly as production was going on. A mere 20 cars of the Tipo 103 250 Europa were built, of which 16 cars with Pinin Farina Coupé coachwork. The early cars had a projecting and overhanging radiator grille with a high waistline compared to the low but rather ordinary greenhouse. Later cars, including 0351EU featured a fully integrated more modern looking radiator with a redesigned greenhouse featuring a striking wrap-around rear window and the elimination of the rear quarter windows giving the car a sportier look.


    This particular car, 250 Europa Pinin Farina Coupé, Chassis Number 0351EU, is unique for a number of reasons. It is the last only around 20 250 Europa with the Lampredi engine built (before the introduction of the Europa GT with the Colombo engine) with the most striking Pinin Farina body design. It was finished on 25m May 1954 for Los Angeles-based famous movie director Clarence Brown (who produced numerous movies with actors such as Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo). Instead of taking the car directly to California he toured Europe for a few months, participating in the 1954 Cannes Concours d'Elegance Automobile, earning him laurels in the 1954 Ferrari Yearbook. Brown sold the car in 1958 to Washington resident Lawrence Garden who kept the car for 3 years before selling it to Stanley Baker from Seattle. It was Mr. Baker who ended up being 0351EU's custodian for an incredible 42 years.


    Early in his ownership he repainted the car to the beautiful enamel Ivory colour before showing it no less than 3 times in the renowned Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance (1965, 1966 and 1990). Baker clearly cherished his beloved possession tremendously which is evidenced by the car's incredible originality including the original, preserved interior.

    A unique Luxury Gran Turismo Ferrari. in outstanding, extremely original condition, representing the best moment of PininFarina design of the Fifties.

    Ferrari 375 MM Pinin Farina Spider - 1953

    Chassis n° : 0362AM

    Stand : Lukas Huni


    The 375 MM models (boasting a Lampredi V12 4.5 litre engine with an impressive 340bhp and replacing the 340 MM with 4.1 litre), were built in 1953 and 1954, helping Ferrari win the 1954 Championship. Initially run as SEFAC Works Cars, the 375 MM was also sold to privateer teams, whilst the 375 Plus (increased to 4.9 litre) was also introduced during the 1954 season. Some 26 375 MM were built, of which 13 375 MM featured the stunningly beautiful Pinin Farina Spider design, with three of these being rebodied by Scaglietti in period, thus only ten remaining in their original configuration.


    375 MM Pinin Farina Spider 0362AM with Scuderia Parravano 1953 - 1958

    Tony Parravano, Italian-born and living in California, was the most important client of both MASERATI and FERRARI in that period and as such enjoyed preferential treatment by both manufacturers. Before production of the 375 MM had started, Parravano already paid for his car in 1953 and was allocated 0362AM by the factory. He very proudly took delivery of 0362AM on October 31st, 1953. The original Foglio di Montaggio shows that the identity of his car was changed from 0376AM to 0362AM before delivery. 0362AM was intensely raced by Scuderia Parravano in 1954 with many 1st OA in the American SCCA race series driven mainly by Jack McAfee. Its most important race was the 1955 Sebring where McAfee was going well, but had to retire due to the car catching fire, causing damage to the rear part of the car, repaired immediately afterwards and repainted in Maroon. The Parravano period ended with the mysterious disappearance of Tony Parravano (rumoured for reasons of tax evasion), resulting in 0362AM being sold to Colonel Sorrell in an IRS Auction, together with more cars and parts from the Parravano stable.


    Further Racing for 0362AM 1955 - 1968

    As was typical for the period (with new models introduced and changing FIA rules) 0362AM was modified by Scuderia Parravano and later with Frank Arciero in California. In 1955 the chassis was shortened to enter the 1955 Carrera Panamericana (event cancelled), and in 1958 0362AM was fitted with a Mistral fiberglass body to compete in the USAC and Pacific Coast Sports Championship series. Indeed 0362AM enjoyed significant race success when driven by Dan Gurney, Skip Hudson and Bob Bondurant.


    Charles Betz and Fred Peters 1968 - 2014

    Charles Betz and Fred Peters, very knowledgeable collectors from Orange, California, were successful in buying 0362AM with the help of Ron Kellogg in 1968. In a difficult search and intense activity during the subsequent years, Betz/Peters were successful in tracing those parts which over the years had been removed from 0362AM. Many of them were in the Sorrell estate, some were sourced from Chinetti, and more from Newport Beach collector Ernie Beutler. A skilful and comprehensive restoration by Betz/Peters over the coming years, involving the best specialists of the time including Steve Beckman of Costa Mesa, was most successful, re-uniting 0362AM with the original parts, and restoring 0362AM to its original specification as delivered new in 1953.


    In a Private European Collection since 2015

    To the delight of the Ferrari Collectors World, 0362AM has been seen back to original splendour in recent years, including participation in the Mille Miglia each year.

    • Scuderia Ferrari Alfa Romeo 8C chassis nr. SF25


    For the 1934 competition season S.A. Scuderia Ferrari produced the final Alfa Romeo 8C Monza's, using locally built chassis frames to their own specifications and increasing the engine size to 2.6 liters, and new bodies by Carrozzeria Brianza. All other components used came from second series Alfa Romeo 8C 2300's that were in stock at the Scuderia workshop.


    SF25 was registered - MO 7139 - on the 4th of April 1934, and a little time later in the Mille Miglia, Tadini and Barbeiri led the way racing SF25 to Roma holding off Nuvolari, Varzi, and all the other aces while averaging 120 kmph.

    A big THANK YOU to all the stands which provide visitors with so many explanations on the models on display. Some give much more detail than others, the levels of information are disparate and stands which do not provide any information should be encouraged to do so, so that people become even more passionate about the models on display.


    Is this innovation, presenting you with the descriptive texts present at the show; in addition to the photos taken on site did you like it? What could be improved?

    Were you present at Rétromobile 2024? What did you like the most? What other Ferraris have left their mark on you?

    Très bonne idée @Franck.


    J’avoue qu’il y en avait tellement que lire les fiches de tous les modèles serait impossible en temps.

    Le top serait d’avoir en plus la traduction et cet article dès le début du salon pour pouvoir l’exporter en PDF et s’en servir et sélectionner certains bijoux à ne pas manquer.

    Je profite de l’article pour poser une question technique.


    J’étais longtemps devant la Ferrari 250 GT Lusso Scaglietti grise de 1962 et j’ai vu un détail repris sur d’autres modèles de la même période.


    Les deux sortes de bouchons chromés sur le côté en bas de la carrosserie entre les deux essieux.

    J’ai pensé d’abord à un caché pour mettre un cric rapide en course, mais je serai surpris que ce soit le cas sur ce modèle…


    Quelqu’un sait me dire ?

    La version française de l'article vient d'être publiée (tu as vu la version anglaise en cours de publication alors, car effectivement leurs textes sont en anglais seulement dans 90% des cas, et les traduire prends un peu de temps).

    Avoir cet article avant le salon est malheureusement impossible (pour le moment). Ce serait déjà bien si cela incitait plus de stands à bien détailler les modèles exposés, dans les fiches descriptives posées à côté des Ferrari, car cela montre leur connaissance de ce qu'ils vendent et leur apporte plus de crédibilité et de publicité.
