By the late 1950s Enzo Ferrari had been producing limited edition road cars for nearly ten years, but was still concentrating mainly on competition models of various types. What he now needed, especially since Maserati had just introduced their first road car destined for ‘full-scale’ production, was a car that could be built in larger numbers and to a more uniform design. The 250 series of cars, which had begun with the 250 Europa GT back in 1954, provided the basis for this new model. Thus the new 250GT coupé was born in mid-1958. Its body was designed by Pininfarina and was very similar in appearance to the 250GT convertible introduced the year before, with the obvious exception of the fixed roof.

The new coupé was the epitome of understated elegance and power, and its design has hence stood the test of time
