An Iconic Car To Go to Auction
The auction company Gooding & Company will have plenty of cars to auction off at Pebble Beach this year. One of the standout models is the 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series I you see here in photos. The car is expected to fetch between $7 and $8 million.
Only 40 250 GT Series I Cabriolet of the cars were built. Of those 40, only four featured coachwork by Pininfarina. This is one of those four, which is what makes it such a special car. Finished in black, the car is absolutely gorgeous. As you can see, the interior features a green carpet and green leather seats. The cabin of the car is absolutely stunning. The green pairs nicely with the black exterior.
Italian aristocrat Prince Alessandro Ruspoli previously owned the car, according to The Supercar Blog. He was a Ferrari VIP and since his ownership, the car changed hands several times. Over the course of its life, the car was shipped to the U.S. and underwent a full restoration. It has since won many contests. This is a numbers-matching car, and Gooding & Company offers a well-documented history for the car, making it even more desirable.
