250 GT Berlinetta passo corto
Presented in Paris in October 1959, the short-wheelbase 250 GT Berlinetta epitomised the ideal road racer. With just a few minor touches (colder spark plugs, racing tyres and a roll-bar), the car could take to any circuit and battle it out for a class win. Designed by Pininfarina and built in collaboration with Scaglietti, the first cars were bodied in aluminium, although later this material was only used for the racing versions. With numerous victories to its credit, this remains one of the best-loved Ferraris ever.
