The Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet: a revolution in Maranello

The Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet was presented at the 1956 International Geneva Motor Show. Its first series was fitted with a Boano body, and was a small revolution in Maranello, where convertibles had been so rare until then, and destined to VIP clients who explicitly requested such models.

The first series of the 250 GT Cabriolet – only forty cars in all – was designed by Pininfarina, and put on the market between 1957 and 1958.

The second series had a few small aesthetic differences, mainly in the position of the bumper and the shape of the headlights, and two hundred models were made.

Here is a Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet from 1962, the last year this extremely elegant Italian car was manufactured.
