An all black outfit is always a good choice when it comes to clothing. An all black car is perhaps even better, especially when they look like this 1952 Ferrari 250 GT/L Berlinetta Lusso by Scaglietti.

Looking to fill the gap between the race-ready 250 GT SWB Berlinetta and the four-seater 250 GTE, Ferrari’s new 250 GT/L sought to offer the best of both worlds between performance and everyday usability. The “L” designation in the car’s nomenclature stood for lusso, or luxury, as this car was indeed a luxuriously outfitted grand tourer.
First unveiled to the public at the 1962 Paris Motor Show, many onlookers quickly fell head over heels for the car’s gorgeous Pininfarina-designed bodywork. Crafted from steel with an aluminium hood and doors, the Lusso’s body was a study in sports car perfection, and it remains one of the most celebrated automotive designs of all time. Now rolling into auction via RM Sothebys and perhaps something suitable for your own garage.
