Not for sale but on loan from a friend of Austin’s Ferrari dealership, this is a really significant car. At the time of its debut, it was the first production car to break 200 mph. Light weight (2500 lbs) and 471 hp from a twin turbo 3 litre V8, created for a race series that was discontinued before the car was presented. More info on wiki. This sparkling car has travelled less than 200 miles. Cost $400k in 1988. A great surprise to find.
One of the prettiest Ferraris. Made in 1963-64, designed by Pininfarina, and built by Carrozzeria Scaglietti. 350 made, weighed between 2300 and 2800 lbs depending on equipment; powered, of course, by the 2953.21 cc “Colombo” V12. Both Steve McQueen and Eric Clapton owned them, so it’s cool, no? (Lusso means “luxury” in Italian.) Found this beauty at Ferrari of Austin.
