Ferrari built just 40 of these Series I 250 GT Cabriolets in 1957 and 1958. This car, with serial number 0813GT, is the 21st car in that series and was finished in April 1958.
By the time the 250 PF Coupe arrived in 1959, Ferrari had refined its road models and, every year, the 250 improved as a practical car. It retained, however, the sporting heritage and the broad outline of the sports racing cars from which it was derived. It is said that the 250 PF was not a cousin to the 250 Testa Rossa; it was its sister.
There are two series of the Pininfarina 2-seater, 1958/59 then 1959/60, the second one receiving important improvements directly inherited from competition cars (Testa Rossa, Tour de France).
Lower and much more elegant than the earlier 250 GT Boano, the Pininfarina Coupe's aesthetics is close to perfection. It is still one of the most beautiful cars ever made, even by today's standards. But the most important feature is that this two-seater Coupe is powered by the legendary all-alloy V-12 Colombo 3-liter engine.Also photographed at :
