Ferrari introduced their 250 Europa GT in October of 1954 at the Grand Palais. The prior year, Ferrari had unveiled the 250 Europa. The 250 Europa GT rested on a redesigned Tipo 508 chassis, featuring a wider track and a wheelbase about 8 inches shorter than the prior model. It received an independent coil-spring suspension in the front which replaced the previous model's transverse leaf-spring arrangement.
The Ferrari 250 Europa was powered by a three-liter version of the Lampredi long block, while the new Europa GT was the first road-going 250 model to benefit from the Colombo-designed V-12. The Tipo 112 engine fitted to the Europa GT was basically a lightly detuned version of the engine found in the race-winning 250 MM competition model.
The Colombo engine was less temperamental, easier to keep in tune, better suited for road use, and took half the time to rebuild than the prior Lampredi engine. The Colombo engine was also lighter than the Lampredi V-12 which contributed to more balanced handling and ease of use at low speeds.

Машина с шасси 0427GT, показанная на Автошоу в Брюсселе в 1956-ом году. Правда тогда она была несколько в другом окрасе.
Показанный сегодня вариант с конкурса красоты Quail Lodge 2010.
Забавно то, что в 1998 году она была продана за 300.000 долларов, а спустя всего 16 лет, в 2014-ом году на аукционе в Pebble Beach уже за 2.310.000.
