Exquisite Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet Could Sell For $8 Million

A stunning 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet by Pininfarina is set to be auction off by Gooding & Company during Monterey Car Week in California.

Ferrari only ever built 40 examples of the 250 GT Series I Cabriolet, and of those, just four featured distinctive coachwork by Pininfarina. This included covered headlights, new side vents, and bumperettes.

The original owner of this particular car, chassis 0789 GT, was one of Ferrari’s VIP clients, Italian playboy and aristocrat Prince Alessandro Ruspoli, a well-known socialite back in the day. The bodywork is painted gloss black with a number of exposed chrome accents, but it is the interior thatreally makes this Ferrari special.

With the exception of the upper half of the dashboard, the cabin is trimmed entirely in green leather. There are even green carpets and the shifter boot is also made from green leather. We don’t imagine the color being to everyone’s taste, but it certainly makes this 250 GT stand out.

Ruspoli ultimately parted ways with the car which, throughout the 1970s and 1980s, it was owned by a number of different enthusiasts across Italy. The car was then imported into the United States and owned by Ron Hein, who commissioned an extensive restoration. In 1994, it won best in class at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Santa Barbara Concours d’Elegance, and the Newport Beach Concours d’Elegance. Additionally, it won Best of Show at the 1996 FCA Vintage Concours in Carmel Valley, and the Outstanding GT award at the 1995 and 1997 editions of the Rodeo Drive Concours in Beverly Hills.

Pre-auction estimates expect the car to sell for between $7 million and $8 million.
