Unveiled to the public at the 1959 Paris Salon, the Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet represented the last evolution of Ferrari’s 250 Spyders and Cabriolets.
Around this time – the 250 TDF and 250 SWB competition models were the fastest and most prestigious road/racecars you could buy and the 250 California and Series I cabriolets were the most desirable dropheads. The Ferrari 250 PF Coupe was the flagship luxury GT and the newly launched Series 11 Cabriolets were to represent a big jump in performance and luxury over their predecessors.
The new Series 11 Cabriolets were fitted with the latest more-powerful Colombo V12 engine with outside plugs, coil valve springs and 12-port cylinder heads, coupled to a four speed with overdrive gearbox, giving a top speed of approaching 150 mph. The fitment of the newly introduced four-wheel Girling disc brakes and the latest Koni shock absorbers also provided the car with handling to match the performance of the engine.
1 of 200 made – this stunning example was subject to a complete nut and bolt restoration over a 5 year period costing $400,000 and is commensurately in superb condition.
The car comes complete with it’s factory hardtop and is ready to tour or show.
