1959 / 1963
At the end of the 1950s, Ferrari realised that it needed to increase production in order to continue its expensive motorsport programme. Seeking to broaden its customer base, Ferrari entrusted its privileged partners with the creation of a 4-seater GT based on the long version of the 250 chassis. Pininfarina created a superb design and the cars were assembled at Scaglietti. The Ferrari 250 GT/E was secretly presented at the 1960 Le Mans 24 Hours. To support its GT ambitions, the car was not entered in the race, but the prototype was used as a race management vehicle. The GT/E was officially presented at the Paris Motor Show that same year.
