The 250 is one of the most sold Ferraris ever, also because from 1952 to 1964 the Maranello’s brand produced several variants of it. Most of these equip the same “Tipo 125” engine, which is light and small; this V12 motor became legendary also thanks to its numerous victories in the competitions. Furthermore, these versions are all based on a SWB or a LWB structure. The SWB (Short Wheel Base) is 2,40 meters long and generally popular among the most sportive and Cabriolet variants, while the LWB (Long Wheel Base) measures 2,60 meters and was less successful. For the first three years of production, Ferrari produced the 250 only for competitions. These first cars were the 250 A (with a small 230HP engine, it obtained an enormous success in races), 250 MM (240HP, known for its boat-like design and produced in just 31 exemplary), 250 Monza (with the same engine and similar structure as the MM, it obtained disastrous results in competitions. Only four exemplary produced), 250 GTO (300HP, 39 exemplary), 250 P (310HP, central engine), 250 LM (LM means “Le Mans”. Produced in 31 exemplary, it’s an evolution of the 250 P). As regards the “GT” series, there are the 250 Europa (first 220HP and then decreased to 200HP), 250 GT Coupe (220HP in the 1st gen. and 240 in the 2nd gen.), 250 GT Cabriolet Pininfarina (produced in two generations, 240 exemplary in total), 250 GT Berlinetta (initially 240HP, then 260HP), GT Spyder California (240HP, extensive use of aluminum), 250 GT 2+2 (240HP or 300HP. Thanks to its convenient price, it obtained great commercial success), and 250 GT Lusso (pictured, 250HP. Today it’s worth over 2 million $/€). The Ferrari 275 GTB is the successor to this car.
