Sold for $2,090,000 at 2015 Gooding & Company : Amelia Island.
The first Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II was shown at the Paris Auto Salon of 1959, and production lasted until 1962, with 201 cars being made. It was the most expensive Ferrari in the 250 GT range. The Series II differed significantly from the Series I and the Spyder California; most importantly, under the hood it had the latest 240 horsepwoer Tipo 128F V12 engine, with 12-port cylinder heads based on the Le Mans-winning Testa Rossa TRI61 engine.

Ferrari 250 GT with chassis number 2489GT is a Series II Cabriolet constructed by Pininfarina. It is a left hand drive vehicle that does have a factory hardtop with a sunroof. It was completed at Pinin Farina's workshop in April 1961 and left finished in Amaranto Roma with leather upholstery. The hardtop with integrated sunroof is thought to be unique to this car. Its first owner took possession of the car in 1961. It was delivered new to Ferrari dealer J.H. Keller AG of Zurich, Switzerland in June of 1961 and then sold to Mrs. Tora. It remained in their care for a number of years before finding its second owner in 1976, when it was sold to Ernst Wanzenried. Ownership passed through several other caretakers before being purchased by its current Florida-based owner. At the time of purchase, it was in very good condition, yet a comprehensive, show-quality restoration was soon undertaken. At that time, the car was painted white and given red leather upholstery and a silver hardtop. The work was completed in early 2012.

Ferrari built just 200 examples of the Series II Pinin Farina Cabriolet between 1959 and 1962. It wore a design by Carrozzeria Pinin Farina and had an original asking price of 5,800,000 lire.

The current owner acquired the car in 2015 and has restored it to its original factory condition.
