the reduction of the wheelbase by 7.87 in (down to 102.4 in [2600 mm]), while the front and rear tracks were increased by 1.14 in (29 mm). The 250 Europa GT was constructed around longitudinal steel tubes with cross bracing and outriggers for support. The main chassis tubes were positioned above the rear axle rather than under it, as previously positioned on the 250 Europa and 375 America models. In terms of making Ferrari history, the 250 series marked the pinnacle point where Pininfarina took over as the sole production company of Ferrari production cars. The 250s were manufactured between 1953 and 1964; they were finally taken off the production line to make way for the Ferrari 275 GTB.
