The 250 GT Lusso, also known as the GTL, was introduced at the 1962 Paris show. The car had flowing lines and a fastback shape typical of the GT cars of the mid-1960s. Power was from the 250 GTO's Tipo 168 engine offering 247 horsepower thanks, in part, to the three Weber 36DCS carburetors. The construction was handled by Scaglietti while Pinin Farina had been tasked with creating the design. Production of the Lusso lasted through 1964 and only minor modifications were made during that time.
