Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider
An early Scaglietti-coachbuilt example of one of Ferrari’s most iconic open sports cars, this extraordinary, matching-numbers California Spider is the 13th of 50 built and features coachwork with rare, covered headlights. The car was delivered new to Ferrari Representatives of California and has been cared for by only three owners in the past four decades. Following its spectacular and complete restoration by Dennison International in 2012, this car received tremendous praise and near-perfect scores at both the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Ferrari Club of America Meet, where it took home a Platinum trophy. Most importantly, this rare Ferrari was certified by the Ferrari Classiche department, confirming it as an authentic, matching-numbers example. Dazzling in metallic midnight blue over rich, tan leather interior, this California Spider’s estimate is $5,500,000 - $7,000,000.
