1961 Ferrari 250 GT California to be auctioned image

A rare example of the Ferrari 250 GT California is getting ready to be offered for sale for the highest bidder in an auction which will take place soon.

If you have done extremely well financially over the last few years and you are looking for a classic supercar to add to your collection than this 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California may be just what the doctor ordered. The model in question will be looking for a new owner as it will be up for grabs at Villa Erba auction during the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, on the 23rd of May, as RM Sotheby has recently announced.

The Ferrari 250 GT California is destined to collectors who appreciate the history of cars and their craftsmanship and it is just one out of 56 units to have ever been put together. Out of these 56 examples, only 16 came with the open headlight look, so you may consider this particular ride a true piece of art.

Just like almost every 250 series Ferrari out there, this one has been hand-built too. The model was getting a 3-liter V12 engine under its hood, capable of producing a total output of 276 HP (206 kW). The 250 has been assembled between 1953 and 1964 in several versions, including the 225 S, 250 S, 250 MM, 250 Monza, 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GTO, 250 P and 250 LM. More details on this particular ride will most likely be announced during the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, on May 23.
