Ferrari 250 Europa Coupé, power and elegance

Ferrari 250 Europa Coupé 1953

The dashboard peers out from behind the metal spokes of the large wooden steering wheel; the seats are covered in black leather; the windows slide smoothly; deflectors and white or gray wheel rims complete the look.

The Ferrari 250 Europa Coupé shared many common details with the Ferrari 375 America, made especially for the American market. It was designed by Pininfarina in 1953 for a demanding, wealthy clientele who wanted a car to embody power and elegance at the same time.

And it was one of his best, tailor-made masterpieces.
