![CDATA[
By the early 1960s, road car production had ceased to be a sideline for Ferrari and was seen as vitally important to the company's future stability. Thus the 250, Ferrari's first volume produced model, can be seen as critically important, though production of the first of the line - the 250 Europa, built from 1953 to '54 - amounted to fewer than twenty. The 250 Europa's introduction heralded a significant change in Ferrari's preferred coachbuilder; whereas previously Vignale had been the most popular among Maranello's customers, from now on Pinin Farina (later Pininfarina) would be Ferrari's number one choice. True series production began with the arrival of Pininfarina's 'notchback' Coupé on the 250GT chassis, 350 of which were built between 1958 and 1960 within the sequence '0841' to '2081'. However, the relatively small scale of production meant that cars could still be ordered with subtle variations according to customer choice, as well as enabling a handful of show cars and 'specials' to be constructed on the 250GT chassis.
A number of important developments occurred during 250GT production: the original Colombo-designed Tipo 128C 3.0-litre engine being superseded by the twin-distributor 128D, which in turn was supplanted in 1960 by the outside-plug 128F engine which did away with its predecessor's siamesed inlets in favour of six separate ports. Developed from the 1.5-litre unit that powered Ferrari's first ever sports car - the Tipo 125C - this supremely versatile engine proved equally at home on both road and track, effectively establishing the worldwide reputation of the marque.  
On the chassis side, four-wheel disc brakes arrived late in 1959 and a four-speed-plus-overdrive gearbox the following year. More refined and practical than any previous road-going Ferrari, yet retaining the sporting heritage of its predecessors, the 250GT is a landmark model of immense historical significance.
