Which 250 model do you consider the best? The 250 GTO and TR had the same flat 12, but the 250 LM got a slight displacement increase, and a mid-engine. There are various other 250's as well (like the GT 2+2), but which do you think is the best?

Only 800 kg! That's lighter than the GTO or the LM

Lighter, true, but the Testa Rossa also only has drum brakes. The GTO (900 kg) and the almighty LM (only 820 kg with more power than the TR mind you) both have four wheel disk.

The first Ferrari to use a flat engine was the 1512 or 512 F1 car in 1964/1965. The engine used in the GTO, TR and LM were 60 degree V12 engines. The GTO is the most sought after Ferrari, and considered by many as the best !!

The LM is my favorite, but what I wouldn't give to make a couple design changes (I know that's blasphemy, but hey... :) ) I'd love to give it a new back end/engine cover...say a nice sweeping glass lid like on the 360 Modena? The front of the car is flawless, however.

I want one of the race cars. A 250 SWB. It has 4 wheel discs (the long wheelbase models, the 'tour-de-france' cars, had drums), a beautiful V12, and were really, really nice. I will post some more on it later, aswell as the exact one I want.:D

Ferrari 250 Comp./61 SWB, chassis number 2937GT (Mairesse's car in the 1961 Tour de France)

I have a friend that has a 62 250 GTO, but it's a kit. I like it a lot though. :)

Ill take any of them if soemone wants to give me one though.

Probable $200000 at least. But NART Spyders cost well into the millions:eek:

1962 250 GTO chassis # 3507 Won the 1962 Lemans GT that is the ultimate 250 with the Tipo 163 C 4-litre engine. and easily attainable in the price range of 1 to 10 million dollars. gotta love the lines of the LWB.

250s are wonderful and I'd love to see or drive any one of them (I wouldn't even imagine the idea of owning one), but I'd like to know how a 250 compared to a 750 (the 3-litre four-cylinder Ferrari racing cars). I think the Testa Rossas came in both 250 and 750 form, with the 250s for fast tracks like Le Mans and Spa and the 750s for rugged, twisting tracks like Targa Florio.
