Bodied by Carrozzeria Pininfarina in June 1961, ‘2815 GT’ was delivered new via Franco-Britannic Automobiles of Levallois-Perret, Paris, France and later that same year was sold to its first owner, a Mr Rabagliati. Some time later the Ferrari moved to Germany and in more recent years was kept as part of a private collection until its owner passed away. The current vendor purchased the car in 2010 via a dealer in Monaco. Unfortunately, nothing more is known of its history, the previous owner’s wife having died soon after he did and all records having been lost.
In 2012/2013 the current owner commissioned an extensive mechanical restoration, the body having been restored prior to the Ferrari’s acquisition. Works carried out included a complete overhaul of the engine and brakes; restoration of the wheels by the Borrani factory; and complete restoration of the interior by a specialist. More recently, the overdrive was overhauled, a new clutch installed and the paintwork refreshed. The restoration cost over €40,000 including €28,000 for the engine overhaul. Some 30,000 kilometres have been covered since the restoration and the car is described by the owner as in generally very good condition.
Fascinating known history; a connoisseur’s favoured driver. Participant on the Ferrari Le 250 Tornano a Casa Tour in 2014. Documented in the 250 GTE Register. Single ownership for the last 25 years.
This mid-production second-series 250 GTE was originally delivered by French importer Charles Pozzi to its first owner in Udine, Italy, in January 1963. Records reflect that the car was serviced nine months later at the Ferrari Factory Assistenza Clienti in Modena. By the mid-1980s, the car was owned by Giancarlo Luppi, who reportedly presented it at the Ferrari Days Modena event in September 1983.
The example presented here was the subject of a comprehensive, professional nut and bolt restoration, during which the body was removed from the chassis. Upon being stripped for paint, it was clear that the body was in excellent condition and showed no signs of previous accident damage. Noted specialists, Touring Garage, performed the outstanding work in 2005, and full records of the restoration accompany the car–as does a proper set of tools. Restored Borrani wheels and new tyres were fitted as well. The current owner acquired the 250 GTE in 2007 and placed it within his 30 car collection, driving it only an approximate 500 km ever since. The car is beautifully presented throughout and remains a highly attractive example of a short-lived yet very drivable series within the greater history of four-seat Ferraris.
