Description:

Series 1 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet260 bhp, three-litre single overhead camshaft Colombo V12 engine, triple Weber carburetion, four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive,independent front suspension with coil springs, rear live axle with semi-elliptic springs, parallel trailing arms and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 102.3 inches.- Highly desirable, one of only 36 Series I Pinin Farina Cabriolets- Full Ferrari Classiche Certification- Fantastic overall conditionDuring the mid-to-late 1950s, Ferrari was in a state of transition; increased racing costs meant that Ferrari needed to sell more road going models to help pay for its extensive racing activities. In the past, although road going Ferrari models were certainly offered, they were essentially hand-built. Variations to suit the wishes of individual customerswere common, keeping costs high, volumes low, and rendering them quite unprofitable.The very first of these new luxury cabriolets was actually debuted by Boano at the Geneva International Auto Salon in 1956 – at the same time as the arrival of the coupe that was to provide the mechanical base for all the cabriolets.Pinin Farina was founded in 1930 by Battista Pinin Farina, although the company is best known for its postwar work, particularly the Cisitalia 202. His son, Sergio, later joined the firm, where he became responsible for most of the companys work with Ferrari and, in the process, created some of the most beautiful coachwork ever to grace Ferrari chassis. The family name became so well known that, by decree of the Italian government, the name was changed from Pinin Farina to Pininfarina, at the same time that thecompany name was changed to Pininfarina as well.The 250 GT Cabriolet (referred to now in hindsight as the Series I) was introduced at the Geneva International Auto Salon in 1957. It was conceived as Ferraris semi-luxury touring car and was thus given better interior appointments and better noise reduction than the California Spyder.The very first example, finished in red, was given to legendary racing driver Peter Collins. It was startlingly beautiful, with a number of special features of which the most obvious was a cut-down door on the driver’s side. It was a nod to a traditional styling element from British sport roadsters. Of course, the day finally came to return the car to the factory, and Collins complied – with a fresh coat of British Racing Green!It was also a pioneering car in another respect. Following his ownership, the factory used his car to fit a number of experimental features and test them, including a set of Dunlop disc brakes.Its chassis and drivetrain may have been strikingly similar to Ferrari’s racing cars, but the high standard of fit and finish, as well as the cars comprehensive instrumentation, luxurious leather interior, and many other passenger amenities, set it apart. The Cabriolet was based upon the 250 GT Coupe,was also presented as a luxury-touring machine, with its body produced by Pinin Farina.The new 250 GT Series I Cabriolet was a sensation. While the Cabriolet appeared to be somewhat longer than the Coupe, thanks to a stylish kick-up just behind the doors and the elegant rear wings, the Cabriolet and Coupe actually shared nearly identical overall dimensions. Mechanically therewas little difference between an early California Spyder and the first Pininfarina Cabriolets. Performance, too, was quite comparable.Series I Cabriolets are truly one of the last undiscovered treasures of the Ferrari convertible world, especially when one considers that the market now values the nearly identical SWB California Spyders in the high seven-figure range.Chassis no. 1193 GTEach of the series 1 cabriolets were different and this car, Pinin Farina build number 15846 featured no fender vents and has open headlights.Offered from long term ownership this exceptional Ferrari has full Ferrari Classiche certification and has been maintained by one of the countrys leading Ferrari specialists. The series one Pinin Farina cabriolet is one of the most desirable, elegant and beautiful of all open Ferrari models and they are in some eyes, arguably more impressive than their sister car, the California Spyder which when new cost less than the PF cabriolet. Much more realistically priced, these magnificent 250 Cabriolets now offer excellent value. Their values continue to rise and offered here therefore is a rare opportunity to acquire one of these magnificent cars in absolutely stunning condition. Ready to be enjoyed on road rallies or concours events and a superp investment quality vehicle.Now available for viewing in our Kew showroom.PriceP.O.A
