One of the most sought after sportscars from the Ferrari stable, the Ferrari 250 LM, will be part of the ‘Ferrari Spettacolo’ demonstration at the 2024 Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival.
Developed as a coupé version of the Le Mans-winning 250 P, the Ferrari 250 LM is powered by a 3.3-litre V12 engine producing 320 horspower. With the Ferrari 250 LM rejected by the FIA for entry in the GT class because fewer than the required 100 cars were produced, Ferrari entered it in the outright prototype class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a 250 LM driven by Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory winning in 1965 – Ferrari's last overall victory in the endurance classic until its win in 2023.
The Ferrari 250 LM heading to the 2024 Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival was raced by the likes of Rindt, John Surtees and Lorenzo Bandini at the Le Mans 24 Hours, Nürburgring 1000km, Reims 12 Hours and more. It is a car with incredible international provenance and arguably one of the most important cars spectators will see at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival.
With just 32 Ferrari 250 LMs built between 1963 to 1965, the 250 LM is highly sought after by collectors, and it has repeatedly broken car auction records over the decades.
The ‘Ferrari Spettacolo’ will be the greatest gathering of special edition Ferraris in the southern hemisphere, with the demonstration taking place on both days of the Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival, on the Victoria Park section of the Adelaide Street Circuit. It features the likes of a LaFerrari, Ferrari FXX, Ferrari 599XX, Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari F40 in addition to the Ferrari 250 LM.
Held the week prior to the Australian Grand Prix, the Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival is a museum in motion, displaying historic, rare and significant racing vehicles on the Victoria Park section of the Adelaide Street Circuit.
Categories featuring Formula 1, V8 Supercars, Group C and A touring cars, sportscars and more will feature over the course of the Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival, in addition to on-track demonstrations, off-track displays, villas and more.
