Description

For many the Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder - be it in LWB or SWB guise - is simply one of the most beautiful cars ever made. With only 55 original examples being built it is no surprise they are highly prized by collectors with price tags to match their exclusivity. As with other automotive icons that are beyond the reach of mere mortals, numerous copies have been produced over the years, ranging from near exact facsimiles to more accessible lookalikes based on a multitude of mechanicals.

The sale car is based on a 1999 category C BMW Z3 2.8 mated to a manual gearbox, this immaculate right-hand drive example appears to have been manufactured to a high standard with incredible detail both to the exterior and interior. The car is appropriately finished in the classic combination of red coachwork with beige upholstery. Offered with its original service book, a collection of old MOT certificates, invoices and V5C, the specification includes electric windows (operated by the window winders) and power hood. The vendor currently classes the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and five-speed manual gearbox as "excellent" and this stylish evocation is offered with an MOT certificate into December 2017.
