1961 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II by Pininfarina

In the late stages of 1959, Ferrari advanced the evolution of the 250 GT model line by unveiling a second-generation luxury cabriolet with a Pininfarina body. This iteration was intended to serve as a grand tourer variant of the contemporary 250 California Spider, which had roots in competitive racing.

Equipped with four-wheel disc brakes and an outside-plug engine derived from the 250 Testa Rossa racing prototype, the new cabriolet emerged as the most dynamically capable 250 GT model yet. It boasted impressive road manners and delivered robust performance, making it a noteworthy achievement in terms of both handling and power.
