Ferrari 250 GT Boano Competizione.
One of the earlier members of the Italian Ferrari club, named Rughero Poggi from Padua, wanted a classic Ferrari for sport purposes. As a serious Ferrari collector he decided to convert one of his cars, an original 1959 Ferrari 250PF coupe, into an alloy 250 GT Boano. Due to his relations within the Italian Ferrari scene he was able to find an original handmade aluminum 250 GT Boano body shell no” 0517GT. This is one of the very rare first series pre-production bodies produced by Pininfarina and finished by Carrozzeria Boano. Mister Poggi replaced the high kick fenders for lower fenders, which where fitted on the later normal production Boano low roof examples, because he liked that style more.
In the eighties the conversion was carried out by one of the best Italian coachbuilders and the result is impressive. This Boano 250GT “Competizione” in Rossa Corsa presents spectacular with its sport specifications such as air scoop, plexiglas side windows, roll cage and dual side sport exhausts.
Note: This example cannot be compared with one of the many “recreations” which are on the market today.
This is a genuine Ferrari 250GT, all components are originally produced by Ferrari. Such as: Original Chassis, Original alloy body and all the technical components are first series 250GT. These components are professionally built together. Condition of the car is very solid and pure with minor patina. The careful owner loved his cars but also loved to drive them and this was his favorite Ferrari for sport purposes such as:
· Grand Prix Cita di Arezzo
· Camucia Cortona,
· “32,”33,”34 Castell, Arquota Vernasca
· Monte Madelena
· Vernasco Silver Flag
Stripped interior is stylish and functional with the original instruments, wooden steering wheel, fire extinguisher and lightweight bucket seats with three point harnesses.
The 2953cc inside plug Colombo V12 engine is essentially the detuned version of the TdF competition unit which delivers approximately 250/275 bhp. In this case the engine performs outstanding and is prepared and tuned for a variety of sport events such as hill climbs and rallying. Road handling is great thanks to the adjusted and stiffened suspension with thicker stabilizers. As it is used regularly, this GT has been extensively maintained to remain in top running order and is stand by. Breaking is impressive with the large drum brakes and the Borrani wire wheels with Michelin Radial X racing tyres in 16 inch are in very good condition.
An impressive and fast Ferrari 250GT which is eligible for a variety of vintage race and rally events.
It has Italian road legal documents.
