The 250 model series was one of Ferrari's most successful product lines around the 1950s and 60s. Between 1952 till 1964, a total of just 250 cars were produced. The 250 series, the corporation's most successful early line, includes many versions intended for both sports car racing and also road use. These 250 series can distinctively be distinguished by the use of a 3.0 L Colombo V12 engine developed by Gioacchino Colombo - an Italian automobile engineer. They were succeeded by the 330 and 275 series vehicles.

Several of the 250 model series are sold at auction for record prices in recent years.
