Ferrari 250 LM
The Ferrari 250 LM is a race car developed by the Italian manufacturer Ferrari.
Presented in Paris in November 1963, the Ferrari 250 LM (for "Le Mans") is a version of the Gran Turismo Ferrari 250 P. designed to replace the successful 250 GTO, it does not know the glory days of previous models. Faced with an increasingly pressing competition, especially against the new project called Ford GT40, Ferrari decided to produce a turn a GT model, hoping as usual "nonchalant benevolence of the CSI to obtain approval GT from the start of production.
While Ferrari had already passed the 250 GTO for a simple evolution of the 250 GT, the same trick does not convince a second time on CSI. The approval of the Grand Touring 250 LM was refused by international bodies at the time, she was condemned to fight with the prototypes which outclassed. Note, however, that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1965, saving the victory for Ferrari.
