The 250LM is probably many people's idea of the ideal G.T. car for it is literally a 250P, " just like the Le Mans winner," with a roof on. Now all those people who said that the 250P couldn't possibly be a prototype of a future G.T. car must eat their words. Whether it would be as happy dribbling down Park Lane as blasting down the Autostrada del Sole is another point.
