|Factory Certified Short Wheelbase California spyder Latest Star Attraction For RM's Monterey Auction|
| RM Auctions, the world's largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is honored to announce the addition of a stunning 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder, chassis 3119 GT, to its Monterey sale, August 17–18 in California.
Considered one of the most beautiful and desirable Ferraris in existence, the California Spyder is the epitome of prestige and magnificent styling, featuring stunning bodywork designed by Pininfarina and masterfully executed by Scaglietti, all married to Ferrari's iconic 3-liter Colombo V-12. In total, just over 100 California Spyders were produced between 1958 and 1963. The example on offer is one of only 37 short wheelbase variants completed in the highly desirable covered headlight configuration, ranking it among the most attractive and desirable of all.
'A true dual-purpose automobile, the 250 GT SWB California Spyder remains one of the world's most coveted automobiles,' says Rob Myers, Chairman and Founder, RM Auctions. 'As one of only a very small group of covered headlamp versions produced, the example on offer is emphatically one of the most desirable open GT cars ever made, combining all of Ferrari's finest work: perfect design with tremendous performance.'
Ferrari Classiche certified and finished in the attractive color combination of Rosso Corsa over a tan leather interior, chassis 3119 GT was sold new in March 1962 through Jacques Swaters' Garage Francorchamps SA in Belgium, before being imported into the United States in 1970. The recipient of an award-winning restoration, it enjoyed a successful showing at the 40th annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1990, where a class award confirmed its authenticity, extraordinary desirability, and the high quality of its restoration. A matching-numbers example and professionally maintained over its known ownership, it is offered for auction ready to be toured or shown at the most exclusive venues around the world (Estimate: $7,500,000–$9,000,000).
