The final evolution of the Mondial, the Ferrari Mondial T was a substantially changed car with numerous visual and mechanical changes. The “T” brought attention to the car’s new layout of its engine and transmission. Originally the engine was mounted transversely and was changed to be longitudinal while the transmission remained transverse, forming a “T”. With its engine increased to 3.4 liters and power now up to 300 horsepower, it was a formidable car that was received favorably among car critics. Considered the most substantial upgrade to the Mondial platform during its entire production, the Mondial T rewards its driver with an intoxicating exhaust note, excellent driving dynamics and overall a very refined Ferrari platform.

This 1989 Ferrari Mondial T Cabriolet arrived at Ferrari of Los Gatos on December 23rd, 1989 and optioned in Rossa Corsa red over a tan leather interior. Not taking very long to sell, the car was delivered to its first owner on January 4th, 1990. John Hockin of Southern California became the first caretaker of the Ferrari Mondial. A collector of Mondials, Hockin would drive the car sparingly as he had multiples of the same car, keeping this special example the most pristine. He added less than 580 miles over the course of 27 years, having the car serviced at Ferrari of Newport Beach and when not driving it kept it inside of his storage unit to preserve the car.

In the summer of 2017 the car was sold to Aurelia Classics who had the car thoroughly gone through to ensure that it was mechanically sound. With over $9,400 of mechanical work done including a major service including new belts, new chain tensioners, suspension components, gaskets and seals, a new water pump, brake and clutch fluid flush, along with a host of other maintenance work. The 2nd owner purchased the Ferrari to be part of his collection, adding only 3 miles to the car during his 9-month ownership before sending the perfect showroom-quality example to Canepa.

When the Mondial T Cabriolet arrived, it was inspected from front to back. Exactly as described, the Mondial looked as though it just rolled out of the Los Gatos Ferrari showroom. Its factory Rosso Corsa red paint finish dazzles in the sun. The leather interior has no wear whatsoever, remaining absolutely pristine and in as-new condition. This rare time-capsule Ferrari offers a new caretaker the perfect opportunity to own and experience a 1989 Ferrari Mondial T Cabriolet as if it was new. With its refined chassis and engine, upgraded components from a decade of refinement from Ferrari and only 584 miles since new, this is the perfect Mondial for any spirited driving or comfortable cruising with the top down.
