1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series 1 Cabriolet Could Fetch $5 Million

With just 40 examples of the 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series 1 Cabriolet ever built, it remains one of the rarest road-going Ferraris ever. Nevertheless, auction Gooding & Company have managed to get their hands on the following blue example for their upcoming Scottsdale auction!

This particular 250 GT Series 1 Cabriolet is number 14 and has been owned by just four different owners since new. For the last four decades, it has been a part of the Donner family collection and comes with extensive documentation tracing back to its original production date.

Under the hood is a 3.0-liter V12 engine delivering a total of 240 hp at 7,000 rpm. That powertrain is then mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Stopping power is then supplied by Dunlop discs brakes. It also features independent coil-spring front suspension and at the rear, features a live rear axle and leaf springs.

The pre-auction estimate suggests it could fetch between $4 million and $5 million. When the sale goes down, we’ll be sure to let you know how much it sells for!
