Ferrari 250 GT Lusso (GTL) (1962-64)

Only 350 were ever built. Regraded as one of the most beautiful designs by Pininfarina. 250 bhp, 2,953 cc DOHC V-12 engine, four-speed manual gearbox. The final iteration of Ferrari’s vaunted 250 GT was dubbed the 250 GT/L, with the “L” denoting Lusso (for luxury), and it was positioned as a pure luxury grand tourer, with distinctively elegant coachwork that was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti. The Lusso’s body, which was crafted from steel with an aluminum hood and doors, was a study in sports car perfection, and it remains one of the most celebrated automotive designs of all time. Gently curved fenders gave way to a sleek fastback Kamm tail, which was complemented by a generously glassed canopy and delicate, minimal brightwork. ( 

Both Eric Clapton & Steve McQueen owned one. The one owned by Steve McQueen was sold for US$2.3M in 2007.
