This was the first model in the legendary berlinetta series. These cars were not only perfect for driving to the track, but also for racing (and winning!) on it.
The first version was bodied by Scaglietti (as were subsequent versions) and immediately showed its mettle during the very tough Tour de France. As a result it was often unofficially referred to as the TdF. After a new series was built with a 20 cm shorter wheel base, the longer first generation models were quickly nicknamed LWB, or long wheelbase.
The “Tour de France” series of cars were the competition orientated berlinetta versions of the 250 GT road cars, designed for racing in the GT category, and were produced from 1956 to 1959. The “Tour de France” part of the model title came from the great French endurance event for cars, rather than the even more famous one for bicycles of the same name.
Any manufacturer whose car won the event, was permitted by the organisers to use the event name as part of the model title. Hence, after winning the 1956 running of the event, Ferrari could use the nomenclature. Although never used officially, it has become the general term used to identify this series of berlinettas.
The bodies were designed by Pinin Farina and constructed in aluminium by Scaglietti. They were mounted on a 2600mm wheelbase chassis, that initially had factory reference number 508, gaining suffixes “B”, “C”, “D”, and “G” as minor developments were made, all were numbered in the odd number road car sequence carrying a “GT” suffix, generally constructed along the same lines as those of the concurrent 250 GT “Boano” and “Ellena” models, as were the mechanical components, like suspension, brakes, and steering, all examples being left hand drive.

Так как автомобили данной марки (250 GT) были довольно успешными, 250-ая серия составляла несколько разных модификаций. Среди них и Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Tour de France - названная в честь одноименного десятидневного автомобильного пробега Tour de France. Она производилась в период с 56-ого по 59-ый год. Всего было выпущено порядка 84 машин. Форма кузова автомобиля изменялась в течении четырех этапов эволюции во время производства. Над дизайном кузовом работал Пинин Фарина, а создавался он в ателье Скальетти. В 58-ом году нос машины кардинально изменили, это касалось и радиаторной решетки, и линий на крыльях. Некоторые автомобили приобрели полные передние и задние бампера. Гоночный автомобиль был очень успешен в гонках, среди которых безусловно были гонки Tour de France. Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Tour de France Berlinetta выпускался с мотором V12, расположенным продольно спереди, объемом 3.0 литра и мощностью 240 л.с. Крутящий момент передавался на задние колеса с помощью 4-ех скоростной механической коробки передач.
