The 250 GTE was Ferrari’s first production 2+2 car, a big moment for the marque. Previous four-seater models had been produced by special-order for individual clients.
Fitted with the Tipo 250 single overhead camshaft 3-litre V12, 957 of them were built. This model featured four speeds plus overdrive. The Pininfarina bodywork combined the results of the latest studies on aerodynamics with extremely elegant lines. The last fifty cars built (the final car left the factory at the end of 1963) were fitted with the 4-litre V12 engine from the 330 America. Engine output was listed at 240 PS (177 kW; 237 hp).
This particular car is a series 1 and arrived with us via auction, requiring a full nut and bolt restoration.
So far all components have been completely stripped and overhauled, retaining as much of the original part as possible. The body and metalwork is almost complete, in preparation for the dry build process and paintwork.
You can keep up to date with the restoration progress via our social media channels.
