Over the course of two years, 60-plus Ferrari 250 GT “Boano” cars were built before Mario Boano left to for Fiat’s design department in 1967, at which point his son-in-law Ezio Ellena oversaw production, giving his resulting 45 “Ellena” coupes a distinctively higher roofline. Needless to say, the 250 road car series had received a momentous start, and the GT groundwork had been laid.
This particular alloy-bodied car, chassis 0609-GT, is said to have been restored to high standards and presents nicely in a two-tone white-and-red paint scheme, accenting Boano’s wonderfully low-slung roofline. Beneath the car’s long hood lives a triumphant 3.0-liter “Colombo” V12, good for a fizzy 240 horsepower, which is routed to the ground through a four-speed manual.
Surely, just shy of two million dollars is a lot to pay for a car. That said…it is a Ferrari 250.
