Get to know the car!
HistoryDuring its early years, Ferrari primarily focused on racing and only manufactured a limited number of road vehicles for a privileged group of prominent customers. However, with mounting competition costs in the 1950s, Ferrari had to increase its road car production to generate extra funds.
Ferrari unveiled the Pinin Farina-designed 250 GT Europa at the Paris debut in 1954, marking the company's initial true production model and laying the groundwork for all subsequent Ferrari 250 variants.
Due to overwhelming demand for the 250 Ferrari, Pinin Farina was unable to keep up with production and subsequently enlisted the services of Carrozzeria Boano, led by Mario Felice Boano, one of Pinin Farina's designers. As a result, a total of 74 Ferrari 250 GT Boanos were manufactured.
The 250 GT Boano was first delivered to its initial owner, Mr. Otto Wild of Switzerland, in 1957. It remained in Switzerland until it was eventually sold to an individual in the UK in May 2000. Since March 2002, the current owner has been in possession of the car and registered it in The Netherlands.
