Find another like it: GTO Engineering offers one-off Fantuzzi-bodied Ferrari 250 for sale.

Leading and respected Ferrari specialist and broker GTO Engineering is confirmed to be responsible for the sale of one of the rarest Ferrari 250s in the world. The 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso bodied by Fantuzzi is unexampled, being the 16th 250 GT Lusso ever made, then having a period coachbuilt Fantuzzi body added. It is now available for sale from GTO Engineering’s UK HQ.

Displayed around the world, including the most intimate and publicised Concours events, tours and road rallies, this one-of-one 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso bodied by Fantuzzi has been cared for by GTO Engineering for over a decade. Its history is well-documented, being originally finished in Grigio Metallizzato from the factory, and supplied new to Luciano Pederzani of Bologna, who, with his brother Gianfranco owned Tecno, a builder of Formula F2 and F3 cars. At their request when the car was still relatively new it had extensive work carried out and was partially re-bodied in around 1965 by Medardo Fantuzzi, who was designing the bodies for their Tecno race cars. Fantuzzi created a one-off treatment with a more aerodynamic front end and faired in headlamps.

The previous owner spent over three years and a lot of effort documenting the actual history of this model, including a trip to Italy to meet with the original owner Gianfranco Pederzani and a visit to the Ferrari factory. He has personally met with, or spoken to, most of the people who have owned this car, to gain first-hand, reliable information.

Its illustrious history starts in 1966 when the Pederzani brothers sold the car to Venezuela, however by the summer of 1968 this special Ferrari had moved to New York and was owned by Richard Trask. In around 1977 Terry Kramer purchased the car, and it is believed it was at that time that some further modifications were made (possibly by Tom Meade) including a more pronounced boot lid spoiler and some 250 GTO-inspired vents in the wings and on the nose. Soon after this the car was shipped to Honolulu where it was registered. The car went through Collier Thelian's hands in 1978 and was sold to Gerald O'Conner in 1979, who put the car in storage in 1981 where it would remain for the next 24 years.

In the Autumn of 2011, the 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso bodied by Fantuzzi went to DK Engineering for a full restoration. It was decided to embark upon a concours restoration and as such the car was stripped to a bare chassis and body. Moulds, drawings, and diagrams were made from a genuine Ferrari 250 GTO and precisely scaled to Lusso size for the various louvres and vents. The car was primed and painted in Rosso Corsa. It returned from paint at the beginning of November 2012, at which point the mechanical rebuild was commenced.

After its time with DK Engineering, the car was transferred to GTO Engineering to be its final mechanical and storage caretaker, who has overseen its servicing and maintenance for nearly a decade (late 2012 to present). Throughout that time, the owner and teams at GTO Engineering ensure that the car remains ‘on the button’ servicing, moving, caring for the car as if it was GTO Engineering’s own. During this time there are significant service and invoicing records for works, including an owner-specified ‘touring themed’ upgrade of seat belts, luggage straps, mirrors to sit alongside its Brantz machine.

4383GT is an elegant and unique Fantuzzi bodied Berlinetta Ferrari; eligible and sought after by some of the world's most exciting Concours events but also eminently usable on the road. Today, this special Ferrari is offered for sale with price on application. The car is in a stunning condition throughout, presented in Rosso Corsa with Tan trim and is available to view by appointment at our facility outside of London.

This GT model brought Pinin Farina back to the very heart of production of the hugely successful 250 series, following a period in which production had been sub-contracted to Boano and Ellena, who modified the original design according to their own tastes.

 

By the end of the 1950s, road car production had ceased to be a sideline for Ferrari and was seen as vitally important to the company's future stability. Thus the 250, Ferrari's first volume-produced model, can be seen as critically important, though production of the first of the line - the 250 Europa, built from 1953 to '54 - amounted to fewer than 20. Before the advent of the Europa, Ferrari had built road-going coupés and convertibles in small numbers, usually to special customer order using a sports-racing chassis as the basis. Ghia and Vignale of Turin, and Touring of Milan were responsible for bodying many of these, but there was no attempt at standardisation for series production and no two cars were alike.

 

The introduction of the 250 Europa heralded a significant change in Ferrari's preferred coachbuilder; whereas previously Vignale had been the most popular carrozzeria among Maranello's customers, from now on Pinin Farina (later Pininfarina) would be Ferrari's number one choice. Pinin Farina's experiments eventually crystallised in a new Ferrari 250 GT road car that was first displayed publicly at the Geneva Salon in March 1956.

 

The styling of the Geneva show car – chassis number '0429GT' – was influenced by Pinin Farina's Superamerica. With the Series 2 variant of the 410 Superamerica, Ferrari switched from a 2,800mm wheelbase to one of 2,600mm, and this shorter dimension would be used for all members of the 250 GT family from the Europa GT onwards, with the exception of the competition orientated SWB and GTO models. As well as the handling advantages conferred by the shorter wheelbase, the 250 GT was equipped as standard with the more compact Colombo-designed 3.0-litre V12 engine, which replaced the Superamerica's bulkier Lampredi unit. However, Pinin Farina was not yet in a position to cope with the increased workload – construction of its new factory at Grugliasco had only just started - resulting in initial production being entrusted to Carrozzeria Boano after Pinin Farina had completed a handful of prototypes.

 

The 250 GT represented a significant departure for Ferrari. Driver and passenger comfort were taken seriously for the first time; the interior was more luxurious, seats were broader and there was less noise intrusion. By this time there was also synchromesh in the gearbox which, combined with a softer ride and light steering, was exactly what was expected by the increasingly important North American market.

 

The seventh of only 353 Pininfarina Coupés built on the 250 GT chassis, '0947GT' has unique flared wheelarches and is one of very few made with a glassfibre boot lid. Despatched to Carrozzeria Pinin Farina in June 1958, the car was sold new in October '58 to one Vittorio Roncoroni, a resident of Milan, Italy, who had previously owned a Ferrari 250 Europa ('0401GT'). In the 1960s Roncoroni sold the Ferrari to one Roberto Goldoni, an airline pilot living in Rome, who sold it on to Edwin K Niles, an attorney and car dealer resident in Van Nuys, California, USA. The car then passed through the hands of various owners in the USA (details on file) before being repurchased by Ed Niles in March 1982. Niles then sold the Ferrari to Curtis L Van Den Berg of Eaton Rapids, Michigan, who had it restored during 1983-1984. Repainted dark red and re-trimmed in brown leather, '0947' was shown by Van Den Berg at the 2nd Annual Meadow Brook Hall Concours d'Élégance in August 1986. Van Den Berg continued to show the car at various prestigious concours venues over the next few years before selling it in September 1998 to Lyle Tanner Enterprises.

 

In 2000 the Ferrari was sold to car dealer Andreas Zenari of Fräschels, Switzerland who in May 2004 sold it on to Messrs Rolf Sigrist and Robert Doux of Greng and Oberburg, Switzerland. The next owner purchased '0947' at Bonhams' Ferrari Sale at Gstaad, Switzerland in December 2005 (Lot 224). In 2010, the engine was completely rebuilt, with the starter motor, alternator, cooling and ignition systems, carburettors, brakes, clutch, universal joints, dashboard wiring, etc all receiving attention at the same time (bills for circa CHF 150,000 on file). Post rebuild, only some 4,000 kilometres have been covered and the Ferrari has benefited from a recent bare-metal repaint with extensive repairs to the metalwork, carried out by renowned marque specialists Hoyle Fox Classics and complementing the prior mechanical overhaul. The car was repainted in its original Nero Tropicale livery and the interior re-trimmed in tan leather.

 

Additional documentation consists of original letters (x12) from previous owners; US Certificate of Title; copy letter from Andrea Pininfarina; copy letter from Ferrari Assistena Technica; copy 'foglio di montaggio' from Ferrari; Massini Report; CD-ROM of photographs (including those of the engine rebuild); and Swiss registration papers. The car also comes with an original instruction manual and sales brochure.

 

More refined and practical than any previous road-going Ferrari yet retaining the sporting heritage of its predecessors, Pinin Farina's 250 GT is a landmark model of great historical significance, of which '0947' is a unique example.

 

This effortlessly stylish coupe was produced in two subsequent versions: the first featured drum brakes, and the second had disc brakes. This first edition and seventh example made is available to view by appointment at our facility outside of London.

First registered on the 6th March 1987, this left-hand drive, European market, Testarossa is finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior and contrasting Red carpets. It was delivered new to the Italian market through Milan dealer 'CREPALDI' and its first owner is recorded as GEFINA S.p.A..

 

The early service history indicates that its first service was at CREPALDI on 28/4/87 and the next entry was considerably later, on 28/7/98 at GARAGE ZENITH in Switzerland with mileage unrecorded. A later owner presumably used the car between Monaco and Kent, as there is history of a cambelt change and annual service at Kent High Performance Cars on 18/1/03 (30,352km) and further services in Kent (27/04/03- 35,807km) and CAVALLARI- Monaco (25/06/04 - 37,961km).

The car was imported from the South of France in 2013 and went straight to Foskers Engineering for a replacement cambelt and annual service resulting in a bill for £2,800. A further £1,500 was spent at Autoclass MK on 14/08/14 attending to some brake issues and repainting the stone chipped front spoiler.

A collector then acquired this Testarossa in 2015 to add to his collection, however, a change of circumstances meant it was offered for sale in 2016. In order to present the car in an absolutely sale-ready condition, the seller left it with Keys Motorsport at Silverstone in early April 2016, where they carried out a further cambelt change at 51,000km (just 200km driven before being offered to market), with some additional work (invoice for £4,700.00 documented). The wheels were stripped and repainted and the Ferrari was then MoT'd.

The current owner has been the custodian of this vehicle since November 2016 and has stored the vehicle only using it sparingly. Upon sale a fresh service will be carried out by the team here at GTO Engineering.

This Testarossa is accompanied by its cherished plate, D12 FER, and a box file containing a fairly comprehensive history, import documents, service records, invoices, the Ferrari tan leather book wallet, Tools and an original brochure (in German), injection manual, wiring diagrams, a parts list and various related publications. All in all - a super package that is available to view by appointment at our facility outside of London.

The 250 GT Lusso is widely regarded as one of the most elegant and timeless designs by Pininfarina of all time. Introduced in 1962 the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso was Ferrari's latest intermediate model, a vehicle to bridge the gap between competition racers and luxuriously appointed 2+2 Coupe's. 351 examples were built between 1963 and late 64.

 

Sharing the ‘shorter’ wheelbase of the 250 SWB, as opposed to that of the 250 GT/E 2+2, the Lusso was powered by its 3-litre Colombo V12 engine, producing 240 bhp and powering the stunning body to 150 mph. Mechanically, the 250 GT/L shared components with all of the current Ferrari range, including the 250 SWB, 250 GT/E and even the 250 GTO.

 

This particular example, Chassis #5953 GTO have been fortunate to have looked after and maintained this car for many years while the owner has campaigned the car on many events such as the Tour Auto and Cento Ore to name a couple.   After 20 years of exciting ownership it was decided to restore the car to its original glory, this car is now presents in its original colours of Grigio Argento over Nero and will come with its Ferrari Classiche certification and a comprehensive history file.

The Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale (CS) was introduced in 2003 as a lightweight and more focused derivative of the 360 Modena, combining an increase of power with 110 kg of weight saving. The mid-engine V8 of the 360 would now produce 425 bhp with weight-saving, mainly achieved through increased usage of carbon fibre and the removal of interior comforts such as floor mats and door cards. Further performance advantages came through a significant upgrade of the F1 gearbox software and the standard fitment of carbon ceramic brakes from the Ferrari Enzo.

The 360 CS was an instant hit amongst Ferrari enthusiasts and journalists alike, offering race car-like performance and driving experiences that could now be enjoyed on the road. Launched at a similar time to the Porsche 911 (996) GT3 RS, both cars have quickly the gained the status of modern classics and are directly attributed to the inception and rise of the ‘lightweight supercar’.

The Challenge Stradale was produced in extremely limited numbers from 2003 to 2004 making it the most exclusive of the lightweight Ferrari V8s. In addition to the 3.5 second lap-time improvement over the 360 Modena, the 360 CS enjoyed a significant acoustic improvement and to this day is widely regarded as one of the greatest sounding Ferraris ever produced.

Supplied new to Italy in 2004, the 360 Challenge Stradale offered by GTO Engineering is what we believe to be one of the very best examples available today in terms of specification, provenance and condition. Finished in Rosso Scuderia over Rosso and Nero leather interior, this 360 CS was supplied new with the all-important factory tricolore stripe and other options such as two-tone steering wheel, four-point racing harness, leather-trimmed roll bar, rosso calipers, Scuderia shields, Giallo odometer and floor-mounted fire extinguisher.

Enjoying regular maintenance in its native Italy as can be seen in its original service book, this 360 CS came to the UK in 2014 and was UK registered at this point. Having covered just 14,700 km (9,135 miles) the condition of the car reflects its minimal mileage and is one of the nicest examples we have dealt with.

No true Ferrari collection is complete without the addition of a 360 Challenge Stradale; to this day the most intoxicating mid-engine V8 to leave Maranello.

We are delighted to present this beautiful F430 F1 low mileage example finished in Nero Daytona, coupled with the contrasting crema leather interior. This is a UK-supplied right hand drive car that was delivered new in 2007 and is offered for sale with just 23,500 miles from new with four previous owners. We have looked after this car at GTO Engineering for over two years, most recently completing a major service and fresh MOT in February 2021, and completing an annual service in 2019.

The current owner has kept this, their pride and joy, within a climate-controlled storage facility, under a cover and connected to a battery charger. Prior to being looked after by GTO Engineering, the service book has stamps throughout from well-known Ferrari main dealers and specialists for both annual and major services. The rear wheels are driven by a 4.3-litre V8 engine boasting 483bhp through the six-speed 'F1' automated gearbox. Original factory specifications include; Yellow calipers, six-disc CD changer, navigation with Bluetooth, Daytona-style heated seats, Scuderia shields, yellow rev-counter, pre wiring for battery charger, carbon dashboard inserts as well as front and rear parking distance control.

The car has just had a fresh detail including a full exterior machine polish, engine bay clean and interior valet, which has brought the car up pristine, ready for the next owner to make the most of sunnier weather ahead. This example comes complete with the original tool kit, emergency tyre inflator and battery charger. Here at GTO Engineering we deem the F430 one of the most usable V8 models of the marque and an exciting future classic.

This particular car features Giallo calipers, Metalic grey racing stripe, Becker head unit, 3D Tesutto seat centres, Alcantara roll over hoops, Navtrak Anti-theft system and Carbon Fibre exterior Package.  Car has also been fully PPF’d by Topaz Detailing.

With Ferrari's 16th win in the Formula One constructors’ championship they set out to develop a convertible variant of the incredible 430 Scuderia. Despite being 90kg heavier than the Scuderia, the 16M is still 80kg lighter than the original 430 Spider and with an increased power output there is a very noticeable difference. The 16M is of course equipped with the same standard equipment as the Scuderia, such as carbon ceramic brakes and the improved version of the F1 Gearbox which was also used later in the monstrous 599 GTO.

The 16M boasts a lightweight and hardcore aesthetic with features such as metal floors, light weight seats and carbon across the trim and elements of the bodywork yet has daily driver usability. This fantastic car has many positive reviews and is the missing link to any lightweight V8 collection.

Just 1 of 499 cars worldwide and 48 delivered to the UK, complete with all original books and both keys, this cherished example is not to be missed out on. This car is available to view in our workshops and will be serviced prior to delivery.

The long awaited replacement for the Dino 246 GT,  the 308 GTB made its debut at the Paris and London shows in 1975. Built to a Pininfarina design by Scaglietti. The sought-after first models boasted fibreglass bodywork apart from the aluminium front lid. This was the first Ferrari production car to feature fibreglass as a body material, and in fact the idea has not been repeated by the company in large volume production since. A return to a pressed steel and aluminium happened in late 1976 for USA cars, and around mid-1977 for European models. The simplest way to identify a fibreglass bodied car, is to see if there is an indent line between the front screen pillar and roof panel. If there is one, then the body is fibreglass.

Disc brakes, with independent suspension via wishbones, coil springs, and hydraulic shock absorbers, were provided all round, with front and rear anti roll bars. A transversely mid-mounted aluminium V8 engine was essentially of the same design as that used in the 308 GT4 model. It was of a 90 degree configuration, with belt driven twin overhead camshafts per bank, having a total capacity of 2926cc, with a bore and stroke of 81mm x 71mm.

The engine was coupled in unit with the all synchromesh five speed transmission assembly, which was below, and to the rear of the engine’s sump. It was fitted with a bank of four twin choke Weber 40 DCNF carburettors, mounted in the centre of the 'V', the exact specification of which depended upon the market. European cars were fitted with dry sump lubrication.

This early fibreglass example was one of the first cars imported into the UK in June 1976 with Col. Ronnie Hoare, the founder of Maranello Concessionaires being the first registered owner. The first UK press car, it featured in a three-page road test in Motor Sport magazine in December 1976 and also in Brooklands Book of Road Tests as well as many others, copies of which are supplied with the car. It has all the available extras including argento metallic paint, air conditioning. This remains a low mileage example of a fibreglass car having covered less than 22,100 miles from new. The car is well known to us having been maintained by ourselves for long periods in recent years.

The 512 BB was announced at the 1976 Paris Motor Show. The 512 BB continued in production until 1981 when it was replaced by the 512 BBi, when fuel injection replaced the carburettors. A total of 929 examples were produced during this period with no USA market ever made. The new model name continued the theme started with the Dino series, of referring to the total engine capacity and number of cylinders, hence  a 5 litre engine with 12 cylinders. The “BB” part of the model title means “Berlinetta Boxer”, a reference to the two banks of six cylinders that are in a horizontally opposed layout.

The standard road wheels are alloy five spoke “star” pattern, with a knock off spinner on a Rudge hub, although legislative requirements in some markets dictated the fitment of a large octagonal hub nut.

The Series II 330 GT 2+2 elegant lines were the work of Pininfarina. This second series differed from the first predominantly in the front-end treatment; the first series (1963-1965) having four headlights and the second (1965-1967) having the two. At the same time, the Borrani wire wheels gave way to ten-hole cast alloy wheels, still with the knock-off Rudge hubs, although the wire wheels remained available as an option and were opted on this car.


The engine is a SOHC per bank 4-litre 12-cylinder unit, engine tipo 209/66, with a total capacity of 3967cc. It has an outside ‘V’ spark plug arrangement, fitted with a bank of three twin choke Weber 40 DFI carburettors, a twin coil and a rear of engine-mounted distributor ignition system producing 300 bhp. The engine is based on the original Colombo ’short’ block design but was slightly longer with increased bore centres to provide adequate waterways with the larger diameter cylinder bores.


The engine Tipo was differentiated from the earlier Tipo 209 due to the number of mounting points: 209 had four, while 209/66, as here, had two. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed, all synchromesh gearbox and a final drive through a propeller shaft to a rigid rear axle. Whereas, early Series I cars had a 4-speed gearbox with an electronically operated overdrive.


This left-hand drive example was imported into Spain by Concesionario Tayre, S.L. in June 1967 and has recently completed a three-year, more than 3,600 working hours, nut and bolt restoration having spent its life in Spain having had two long-term Spanish owners from new. It is in its back in its original colour combination of Grigio Notte 18933 Met over Nero Franzi with its original Connolly leather intact and original. The car is located at our workshops in the UK.


This example also has a special rear seat arrangement from new adding to its GT capabilities and credentials. The car is a concours winner having won the Gold Cup Best Classic Car award at the 2017 Autobello Meeting in Madrid, Spain, a testament to the quality of the work. Having now road-tested the car ourselves, it is undeniably one of the best examples mechanically and cosmetically we have seen and has covered 78,000km from new.
