The Ferrari 250 LM name makes you think that it would be powered by a 3 liter engine, but this time the engine name did not follow the traditional Ferrari rules that the unitary engine displacement was used as a part of model name, the engine used had a unitary displacement of 275.81 cc. 

The Ferrari 250 LM prototype (5149) was shown at the Paris Salon Automobile in October 1963, then it traveled to the Torino Car Show, the London Motor Show and last to Brussels. In 1963 it used a 128/LM/63 3 litre engine. (128/LM engines were used in 250 TR's). 

In 1964 the engine was replaced by an engine type 211 engine with a 3,3 liter displacement.

The 250 LM berlinetta used the same chassis and running gear as the 250 P with minor modifications.

The FIA’s refused to homologate it as a GT car. This  extend the life of the 250 GTO on the racing circuits.
