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

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.
