The Allure of the Automobile Exhibit at the High Part 17, the Ferrari 250 GT Comp Berlinetta

1961 Ferrari 250 GT Comp./ 61 Short-wheelbase Berlinetta

In the world of automotive racing the Ferrari 250 GT (Gran Turismo) exceeded expections. In an effort to improve handling Enzo Ferrari turned to Pininfarina to design a short wheel-base version which resulted in the 1961 250 GT Comp./ 61 Short-wheelbase Berlinetta (quite a mouthful!). Quite the beauty - sorry about the lack of photos. The High had this one tucked away into a room where I could only get shots from the front. I tried the "wide swing" to get an angle shot and it was just too blurry.

Next up the last car (at last!): 1953 Porsche 550 Prototype
