Sure, new cars are great and technologically advanced, fast, and sleek. But there is something about the classics that get everyone’s attention. Ferrari has crafted more than a few iconic cars throughout the decades, and today we get a look at one. Back in 1960, a rather special Ferrari took to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was the marshall’s car, a 250 GTE 2+2, the first production four-seat Ferrari.
The ride marked a major moment for Ferrari, as their road cars began to gain a lot of attention. The 250 became a legend. The marshall’s car was a stretched and widened version of the 250 frame with coachwork by Pininfarina. Today we get a look at a 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 Coupe.
This beautiful machine was shipped to the US, then to the UK, where it resides today. The ride boasts a bare metal restoration and a two-year rebuild of the Colombo V12. The paint and stunningly red leather interior are exactly how the car left the factory. This beautiful car is certainly remarkable and one worth adding to your fleet.
