|The 1953 Ferrari 250 Mille Miglia Berlinetta is the first in the iconic 250 GT line. |
Ferrari presented the 250 Mille Miglia (MM) Berlinetta, designed by Pininfarina, at the 1953 Geneva Motor Show. The same year, 13 were made and sold. A Barchetta version sold 18.
|The all alloy engine was successfully raced in 2, 2.3 and and 2.7 litre before the first 3 litre car debuted victoriously at the 1952 Mille Miglia. It was in this configuration that the Colombo would be used for well over a decade, scoring many major victories. |
Suspension was by double wishbones at the front with a transverse leaf spring and a live axle at the rear. Breathing through three Weber Carburetors, the 2953 cc engine produced 230 bhp.
