    Hi, in the absence of anything more authoritative to hand I have been reading about the 250 GT Lusso on Wiki and found a reference to Steve Boone a member of a band called the Lovin' Spoonfull having a 250 GT/L stolen with a chassis number #4237 (presumably GT).

    Barchetta notes that #4237GT was the first production Lusso but has no further details.

    I have also seen elsewhere on the web Steve Boone is said to have had a very expensive boat stolen while he was in the Bahamas.

    Does anyone know for certain, ie from a non Wiki Interweb source a) Steve Boone owned a 250 GT/L b) if so was the said 250 GT/L subsequently stolen, and c) if so was the chassis number of the stolen car ever ascertained ?

    Relevant Answers maybe used and credited on a forthcoming blog.

    Thanking you in anticipation of your responses.

    Some might say 4213 was the the 1st production Lusso. Others would call 4213 the 3rd prototype. Would be nice to know !!

    I believe Stephen has it. Almost positive.
