    The GT Lusso, which was not intended to compete in sports car racing , is considered to be one of the most elegant Ferraris. Keeping in line with the Ferrari "tradition" of that time, the GT Lusso was designed by the Turinese coachbuilder Pininfarina , and bodied by Carrozzeria Scaglietti. The car was manufactured for only eighteen months, from early to mid , and was the last model of Ferrari GT generation.

    Auto shows often provide an opportunity for manufacturers to introduce new designs publicly. Indeed, fans of sporting driving of the time became as fond of civilized designs, that is, comfortable and spacious, as they were of radical sports cars.

    According to a longstanding American expert on Ferrari, Peter Coltrin , the construction of the GT Lusso must have begun soon after the presentation of the prototype of the Paris Motor Show. Although it was not intended to compete, the GT Lusso made a few appearances in several sporting events in and , such as the Targa Florio and the Tour de France.

    Note nomenclature change due to increase in engine cylinder capacity. As usual, the company Carrozzeria Scaglietti was responsible for the manufacturing of the body.

Five additional gauges were positioned in front of the driver, behind the three-spoke Nardi steering wheel made of wood and aluminum, placed almost vertically.

    At the level of suspensions, the GT Lusso had double wishbones and coil springs at the front, while the rear suspension comprised a live axle , leaf springs, semi-elliptical concentric coil springs and telescopic shock absorbers. Braking was provided by four-wheel disc brakes with hydraulic control, placed behind the polished aluminum Borrani wire wheels with single knockoffs.

    The engine was equally "civilized" as the interior, given that it was provided with just one overhead cam head through the cylinder bank, two chain driven valves per cylinder and three dual-barrel Weber 36 DCS carburetors , compared to the twin-cam heads and six carburetors used on high performance models.

    Being the last representative of the Ferrari lineage, beginning in with the S , the end of the production of the GT Lusso in heralded the beginning of a new generation of Ferraris, increasingly luxurious and refined, such as the Ferrari and The Ferrari GT Lusso also marked the conclusion of a marketing strategy of Enzo Ferrari , according to which "Ferrari racing cars were sold, for car racing lined with the traffic, so that it can make the race competitive".
