The Ferrari 250 GTE was not only the most beautiful, comfortable and luxurious family car you could buy in the 60s, but perhaps could be the reason the Ferrari name lives today. Mr. Enzo Ferrari was concerned about one thing - racing. The only way he was able to continue to fund his racing legacy was to build road cars. The 250 GTE was the first true 2+2 production road car to hit the shores around the globe, giving the ‘E’ in its name for ‘Export’. With just 954 examples produced from 1960 - 1963, it is said by many experts that less than 500 number matching examples survive today. This is one of them.

THIS CARS PAST

#3547 was given a proper body-off restoration in 1997 with $50,000 and more spent from 2012-2014 on no-expense-spared maintenance, to make this 250 GTE as enjoyable as possible to drive. All work was done by well-known Ferrari experts: Tom Yang and Francois Sicard in Ridgefield, Connecticut have worked on the car, as did Nick Soprano from Motor Classic in Bedford Hills, New York. #3547 has a superb new coat of paint, completed in May 2014.
