Ferrari 250 GT California Spider expected to fetch $18m!

This beautiful Ferrari 250 GT California Spider is coming up for auction at Gooding’s Pebble Beach sale on the 15th-16th August, with organisers expecting the car to fetch an astonishing $18 (£11.5m)!

This example is the short-wheelbase version with covered headlights and a a 3.0 litre V12, one of just 37 of this type built by Ferrari in the late Fifties and early Sixties

According to Gooding & Co, this is the first time since the 1960s that this particular SWB 250 GT has been offered for sale.  It is a completely authentic period example, with no restoration work carried out.

The expected $18m price tag reflects the desirability of this incredibly rare Ferrari – a few years ago another covered-headlight SWB 250 GT Spider sold for $8,580,000.
