The Ferrari 250 MM Berlinetta: small details for a great car

Ferrari 250 Mille Miglia Berlinetta 1953

Ferrari presented the 250 Mille Miglia (MM) Berlinetta, designed by Pininfarina, at the 1953 Geneva Motor Show. The same year, 13 were made and sold (there was also a Barchetta version, designed by Giovanni Michelotti, that sold 18).

Small details, such as the front grill and wide back window, made it a real innovation in car design.

Confirming 2014 as the golden year for Ferrari collectors, last year a 250 MM Berlinetta was sold in Monterey for 7.86 million dollars.
