Description

The 250 GT Lusso is widely regarded as one of the most elegant and timeless designs by Pininfarina of all time. Introduced in 1962 the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso was Ferrari's latest intermediate model, a vehicle to bridge the gap between competition racers and luxuriously appointed 2+2 Coupe's. 351 examples were built between 1963 and late 64.

This particular Right Hand Drive example is one of just 22 cars originally supplied by Maranello Concessionaires and was first delivered in April 1964. The car was collected from the factory and driven back by the first owner. It has remained in the UK ever since and remarkably it is believed the car has only had four private owners from new. With its well-known registration "99 JBU" the car was for many years in the long term ownership of Mr Alexander Fyshe, who showed the car at numerous events during his 30 year ownership.
The car was restored in the 90's over a long period by Maranello, it had little use and remained in concours condition for the rest of Fyshe's ownership until 2008 when it was sold to private owner number three. Since then the car has been very well maintained and although it has covered a few thousand miles it was maintained by Bob Houghton at no expense spared for the third owner. Over the last 2 years DK have maintained it for the current and fourth owner.
The car has also been Classiche certified and last year the car was repainted to its absolutely breath-taking original colour of "Bleu Chiaro".
This Lusso is an exceptional example of arguably the most stunning and desirable Ferrari road car. Fabulous and extremely rare.
