Chassis 5681 GT was registered immediately after its importation to Giuseppe Medici’s company, Medici S.p.A., in Reggio Emilia. It only remained in his ownership for a short period of time and by the following year, the Lusso was noted as being re-registered in Padua under the ownership of the great Ferrari enthusiast Aldo Cudone. The Ferrari was then finished in dark brown by Bachelli & Villa with a tan leather interior by Luppi—a livery that Aldo Cudone specifically selected because his father had owned a Lusso in the same colour combination whilst he was growing up. The car was seen at Ferrari’s 50th anniversary festivities in Rome and Maranello in May of 1997. The Lusso was acquired by its current Italian owner in 1999 after Aldo Cudone passed away. Still finished in dark brown over beige, a strikingly elegant colour combination, the GT/L presents quite nicely throughout and is accompanied by a car cover and tool roll.
Considered by many to be the most attractive model of the 250-series of Ferraris, the Lusso is just as wonderful to look at as it is to drive. Capable of crossing large tracts of land at high speed while cosseting its driver and passenger in ultimate comfort, the Lusso is a grand tourer par excellence and a wonderful automobile by all accounts. Thanks in part to its highly compelling colour, 5681 GT stands out from the rest as a remarkable example of the vaunted 250 Ferrari.
