The 250 GTE made its first appearance at the 1960 Le Mans were it was used as a safety car. It was officially introduced at the Paris Motor Show later that year.
Prior to the 250 GTE there were more 4-seater Ferraris like Ghia’s, Touring’s and Vignale’s who all designed 2+2 models during the 1950s, but not particularly successful.
The close collaboration between Ferrari and Pininfarina for the design of the first series of 4-seaters, had very good results. This specific car was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
