Ferrari 250 GT Ellena

The Ferrari 250 GT Ellena.

Vehicle Overview

The Ferrari 250 GT Ellena stands as a unique chapter in the marque’s history, intertwined with the evolution of Carrozzeria Ellena and the legacy of Mario Boano. In 1957, Boano’s appointment to lead the Fiat Centro Stile prompted a shift in focus for his former body production endeavors. This responsibility fell to his son-in-law, Ezio Ellena, and Luciano Pollo, leading to the establishment of Carrozzeria Ellena, which would play a pivotal role in crafting Ferrari Coupés. Under the banner of Carrozzeria Ellena, the 250 GT Coupé Ellena series emerged, characterized by distinctive features that set it apart from its predecessors. While early examples retained Boano’s low roof concept, later iterations featured a raised roofline and the absence of quarterlights, marking a departure from tradition. Practical enhancements, such as repositioning the spare wheel under the boot floor for improved cargo capacity and the addition of fender vents, reflected a commitment to usability and comfort. Inside, standard features like a cabin heater underscored a focus on enhancing the driving experience without unnecessary frills. Technical upgrades, including larger brakes for enhanced stopping power, further bolstered the cars’ everyday usability. Notably, all high-roof variants received chassis and engine upgrades denoted by the codes 508C and 128C, respectively, signifying a commitment to performance and reliability. Carrozzeria Ellena’s tenure saw the production of fifty Ferrari 250 GT Ellena cars before Pinin Farina reclaimed its position as the primary coachbuilder for Ferrari. Despite its relatively brief existence, Carrozzeria Ellena left an indelible mark on Ferrari’s history, contributing to the marque’s legacy of innovation and excellence in automotive design.
