The Ferrari 250 was the ultimate 1960s grand touring car and it was introduced to the world before that decade had even begun. More than half a century later its genetic code is still identifiable in today’s top sports coupes, but for this video we’ve ditched the roof for a blast around Britain’s B-roads in a rare open-headlight version of the series II California Spyder.
In this section we celebrate all that has come before, mostly Ferrari but some just Italian and mostly forgotten.
Each month we shall research another exquisite piece of Italian engineering to present for your ocular stimulation. So bookmark this site and keep checking for the next installement. Be sure to click the "continue reading" link to get the full article.
The Lucky Owner of this rare Ferrari 250 GT PF Coupe explains: I came across this car through a client of mine. I had heard rumors that there was a vehicle in an apartment building that he owned, but I never saw it. He was very closed lipped about it. He never wanted to say much until recently. Once he came to retirement age, he started selling things in preparation of moving out of state.
I kind of kept badgering him about it, and eventually, he let me see the car. I didn’t believe it when I saw it. It was literally inside a one-bedroom unit of an apartment building in Hollywood.
Don Johnson had great taste, at least in cars. His black Daytona upstaged even the white Testarossa on any given night.
