The Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso was manufactured for only eighteen months, from early 1963 to mid 1964. It is of the line of Ferrari’s that is more about style and civilized designs than racing pedigree. The Berlinetta Lusso is more luxury than race car.
The car, which originally sold for $13,375 is regarded by many as one of the most beautiful Ferraris ever made. Steve McQueen and Eric Clapton—known for their love of sports cars, both owned a Berlinetta Lusso. In fact McQueen’s Lusso sold in 2007 for $2.3 million—nearly double the auction estimate.
