In the 20th century, Ferrari and Pininfarina created many famous models. Among them is the legendary Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet from 1958, which will soon be available at a sale auction in Arizona.
In addition to being a beautiful, the car which will attract the attention of wealthy collectors in January at Gooding & Company’s auction, it also has an interesting history.
Ferrari exhibited the car at the Turin car show in 1958 and then at the 1959 New York car show, where he was spotted by Mohammed bin Faisal Al Saud, prince of Saudi Arabia, who was then living in the US while attending Menlo College in California.
The car later came into the hands of collector John Clinard, who restored it and owned it over four decades.
Otherwise, this Ferrari is one of only 41 models of the 250 GT Series I Cabriolet, as far as they came out of the factory, which further raises the price.
It is expected that the car reach between $7 and $8.5 million next month at auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.
