There's an interesting story behind the coachbuilt Ferrari 250 GT Boano and Ellena


The strange name comes from the coachbuilding firm that bodied the cars for Ferrari. Although designed by Pininfarina, it was erecting a new plant and didn’t have capacity to build them. The work was given to former employee Mario Boano, then, after around 80 were built, the contract was passed to his son-in-law Ezio Ellena, who assembled another 50. Early cars put out 220bhp from their 3.0-litre V12 engines, but this rose to 240bhp. Despite independent double wishbone front suspension, the chassis is fairly crude.
