Independent front suspension with parallel A-arms and coil springs

Four-wheel disc brakes

Wheelbase: 2,400mm (94.5”)

Introduced in 1959, the 250 GT Berlinetta was designed with three objectives: first, to be more aerodynamically efficient; second, to be as compact as possible; and third, to provide appropriate accommodation and luggage space for a true grand turismo automobile. In the process, Pininfarina and Scaglietti created one of the most beautiful automobiles of all time, a succinct, straightforward and purposeful blending of form following function that is pleasing from all aspects.

 

Seven cars, known today as “Interim Berlinettas”, were built on the 2600mm long wheelbase chassis before construction was shifted to the 2400mm short wheelbase chassis, a change deemed desirable to improve the cars’ responsiveness in cornering. Still called the 250 GT Berlinetta by Ferrari, its wheelbase has subsequently been firmly attached to the factory’s model designation to distinguish it from numerous other 250 GT models and the 2600mm chassis “Interim Berlinettas”.
