The Ferrari 250 GT Lusso is regarded by some as one of the most beautiful cars ever to leave the fabled gates at Maranello. A total of 350 cars were produced from 1962 – 1964. This particular car is one of just 22 UK RHD cars.
Chassis #5697 GT was supplied new by Maranello Concessionaires Ltd on 13th April 1964 with Blue Sera 20.100 exterior complemented by a Grey VM3230 leather interior. The second registered keeper purchased the car from Maranello Concessionaires in the Autumn of 1964 and simply refused to take delivery until they repainted it “Racing Red”.
In 1966 the car was bought by John Campbell and it remained in the same family for the next 48 years. During this time, the family entered the car into competitive Hill Climb and Touring events, even posting the fastest time of the day at Wiscombe Park in 1968.
Flared wheel arches were fitted in 1972 to accommodate wider tyres.
In 2014 Marylyn Campbell took the car from storage to take part in the Ecurie Ecosse Tour of Scotland.
In 2016 the current UK owner commissioned Barkaways Ferrari to fully restore the car back to its original factory specification and was very proud to unveil the car at the 2018 Salon Privé Concours where it went on to win Best in Class.
