Artist's Description

The Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso has for many years been touted as the most beautiful Ferrari ever built. One look at the classically inspired lines from legendary designer Pinin Farina will have you understanding why. The swooping, curvaceous panels, wide-set headlights and blunted shark-nose mouth with the traditional long-bonnet fastback styling gave the Berlinetta an elegance that wasn’t matched by the muscular haunches of the sibling 250GTO racecars. With most examples now fetching close to a million US dollars, the Lusso is one of the cheapest ways to get yourself into an uber-rare machine. Only 353 examples were ever produced, the most famous one having been owned by Steve McQueen, the king of cool.

Under the bonnet lies the same aluminium 3.0 litre V12 engine found in the GTO, tuned to produce a modest 250bhp. The car wears the same Borrani wire wheels, the same disc brakes and suspension setup as the GTO. Despite this, only 3 of the 353 cars built were ever transformed into race cars.

The image has taken 10 months to finish, mostly to interruptions. A guesstimate at time would be approximately 50 hours.
