Ferrari 250GTE Spring Drive

I took one of the 250GTEs I have at my shop out for a drive this week after a winter in storage. Winter in the Northeast was not willing to leave without a fight, but I think Spring is finally making some headway back into our lives!

250GTEs were the first large production 2+2 car Ferrari produced, and the most of any model they built at that time. They built about 950 of these cars during a span of about 3 years, and the success of this model helped fund some of Ferrari’s racing team. To think this little GTE helped pay for the racing of GTOs and all the LeMans prototypes of a pretty glorious time in racing. Just driving this car connects me with that era!
