There were 63 'Boano' produced and characterized by their low roof line. These were built by Carrozzeria Boano. By the close of 1957 Mario Boano left his company to his son-in-law Ezio Ellena who took over with old partner Luciano Pollo. Boano left to set up Fiat's styling department. The Ferrari 250 GT 'Ellena' Series were characterized by their 'high-roof' lines coupes, except for the first eight with serial numbers 0679 to 0697. These continued on Boano's low roofline with vent windows.
Under the hood was a Colombo-designed V12 engine in three-liter size capable of producing horsepower ranging from 250 and 290 depending on its specifications. The superior performance of the Ferrari was complimented by its luxurious interior which provided adequate room for its occupants while the trunk provided suitable room for luggage. Zero-to-sixty took under six seconds while top speeds of up to 157 mph, depending on engine and gearing, could be achieved.
Ferrari 250 GT Boano with chassis number 0527GT is a left-hand drive, all alloy, low roof coupe. The vehicle's first owner was Vittorio de Micheli who participated in a 1956 hillclimb with the vehicle. The history disappears for a number of years before being brought to the US where it was offered for sale during the early 1990s. In 2002, while in the possession of Lucaiano Bertolero, the car was treated to a restoration where it was given a dark blue finish with a silver roof. The cosmetic restoration had been performed by Mario Galbiatti.Also photographed at :
