Ferrari Classiche Certified
Commissioned to Series 2 Specification in Period
Introduced in 1958,this model was an important landmark in the Ferrari production car story, as it marked the point where Pininfarina became, with only one subsequent exception, the sole designer of Ferrari series production cars to date.
The engine/chassis combination would, with upgrading and modification, form the backbone of Ferrari production car output in the form of the various 250 GT models,for a decade.
Based on the chassis of the preceding model,it was powered by the iconic Columbo designed Tipo 125 2935 cc V12. Noted for its short-block dimensions, light weight and impressive output, the engine is famous for its free revving and smooth nature. In this model, it produced 237 bhp at 6200 RPM, accompanied by a glorious howl from the four “ANSA” sports exhaust pipes! The 250 GT rode smoothly on independent front suspension and telescopic shock absorbers, front and rear. It had a four speed, all-synchromesh gearbox for greater driving ease and it stopped as well as it went thanks to its all round hydraulic disk brakes. As a long distance “Grand Tourer” it was unsurpassed by its contemporaries. The sumptuous cabin featured swiveling quarter-lights, a large volume of glass for light and visibility and acres of leather and chrome.
1169GT was delivered new in Paris,France by Franco-Britannic Automobiles in 1958,this was the first 250 PF Coupes to be delivered to France. The original owner in 1961 returned the 250GT back to the Ferrari factory in Maranello so they could upgrade his car to Series II specification which included;
•Outside plug Cylinder Heads
•Air Scoop to Bonnet
Our car is presented in superb order with obvious signs of care and attention by the previous ownership which is clearly visible from its outstanding finish and appearance. #1169GT represents a remarkable balance of style, speed and usability compared with its roofless and less practical siblings now reaching sale prices far into the millions.
Our matching number example with the desirable series 2 upgrades completed in period by the factory must surely be the very zenith of good value. Without doubt the 250 GT Coupe Pininfarina Coupés are possibly one of the most underpriced; two seat Ferrari models available today.
