By the late 1950s, Ferrari's success on the racetrack cemented its status across Europe and North America. Its road cars were gaining greater popularity as a result. At first, its limited-production and coachbuilt road cars were a means to an end for its racing efforts, bringing in much-needed funds to ensure Ferrari remained competitive on the track. However, as time marched on, the road cars would become an equally important part of the marque's lineup. In particular, the 250 series proved that Ferrari could have its cake and eat it, too.

 

Underpinning not only Le Mans winners but its grand touring cars, the 3.0-liter Colombo V-12 and 250 GT chassis could seemingly do it all. From the lovely Lusso and the sporty California Spider to the Tour de France and, of course, the 250 GT cabriolet, the basic construction formula was nothing short of perfect. Clothed in quintessentially Italian bodywork, these cars looked as beautiful as they drove.

 

The 250 GT cabriolet was the true gentleman's Ferrari. More at home cruising the coastline of the South of France than rocketing down the Mulsanne Straight, the cabriolet was built for those individuals who respected Ferraris racing pedigree yet wanted something much more civilized, comfortable, and practical than its racing counterparts. As such, personalization played a key role; in many cases, the owner's wishes were Ferrari's command.

 

Upon its debut in 1959 at the Paris Motor Show, Ferrari introduced a second generation of Pinin Farinabodied luxury cabriolets, which offered various subtle changes over the first-series models, essentially a grand touring version of the concurrent competition-derived 250 California spider. These included open headlamps with a slightly more rounded nose and elongated taillamp lenses. Slightly more space in the interior and trunk also made long journeys more comfortable. Featuring four-wheel disc brakes and the outside-plug version of the Colombo V-12, designated Tipo 128F developed during the Testa Rossa campaigns, the new cabriolet was the most tractably powerful 250 GT to date, claiming both fine road manners and strong performance.

 

Only 200 examples of the second-series cabriolets were built, lending the model equal parts rarity and elegance. These mid-production 250 GTs offer the best of both ends of the spectrum, as their striking open coachwork envelopes more modern chassis components in a combination that today's collectors can particularly enjoy on vintage touring events.
