    My all time favorite Lusso color. When I first saw this newly restored Lusso in 2014 I wondered why the interior color was switched from this very rare green to the more common orange. Then, having gone thru interior hassles myself recently, I guessed the reason. While leathers can be bought in most any color today, vinyls cannot. You simply cannot find a vinyl the exact shade of green to make the luggage platform upholstery.

    I've already questioned the museum 2 or 3 times in the past, never got an answer. I program a visit in the coming weeks. Will see...

    250 Lusso is chassis #5427 GT and is Nocciola 19397 M Italver.
    Since 28 March 1990 this Lusso is owned by the factory (they bought it from Marzia Deambrosi) who left it repainted red for a long time until they finally brought it back to the original Noccioloa in 2018.

    Hi Marcel,

    I've seen two unidentified red Lussos at the museum in Maranello. One with a tan interior in 2006 and one with a black interior in 2016. Maybe one of these was also 5427?

    Best, Peter

    The red one with the tan interior is 5427 GT. As said, purchased by factory ages ago and finally brought back to original Nocciola.

    I also saw this Lusso with the black interior, in Maranello, April 2016. But not identified...Obviously, I guess it's the same car even though it was not exactly at the same place !
