A rare pristine 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L Berlinetta Lusso Scaglietti is set to be auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s in the middle of August. As one of just 350 examples ever produced, it is inevitable that this rare Ferrari will fetch a pretty penny when the final hammer drops.
This particular example, chassis 4393 GT, is actually just the 21st example built and when originally produced, it was finished in Araranto Italver combined with a beige interior with Connolly leather. It was initially sold to Jacques Swater’s Garage Francorchamps before soon being resold to Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut.
It was then sold privately to a Californian man before changing hands to Robert White or Chicago in 1970. This is when it was repainted silver-grey metallic and reupholstered in black. In the coming decades, it travelled back to Europe before once again heading back to the United States in September 1993. In early 2000, it went back to Europe and in 2006, 4393 GT returned to the United States where it has remained.
As with all other examples, it is powered by a 3.0-litre V12 engine pumping out 250 hp. This engine is then mated to a four-speed manual transmission.
