Description

After the first 40 cars had been produced, a second series was created. To differentiate it from the more sporting 250 GT Spider California, the Cabriolet's styling was made more sober, boot space was increased and it was made more comfortable inside. Production continued with the hard top and folding soft tops until 1962, and around 200 cars were built in all. Although there had been successful spider-bodied Ferraris by the late fifties, cabriolets featuring proper folding soft tops had only been produced in relatively small number. The Pinnafarina design was very elegant and beautifully balanced, similar in appearance to the two coupe 'Speciale'.

We have acquired this stunning vehicle from a very well known Ferrari collector based in the UK, where we have done business for many years.

The vehicle was believed to be destined for Iraq (Baghdad) but went to a high profile Ferrari enthusiast, until it came to the UK to be fully restored back 2018 by its current owner.
