1960 Ferrari 250 GT Series II : Classic Cars

The first Ferrari 250 GT cabriolet was introduced in March 1957 at the Geneva Auto Show. Series I cabriolets were built from 1957 to 1959 and the Series II cabriolets were built from 1959 to 1962.

Some confusion existed early on between the open cars - the cabriolet and the spyder. The coachbuilder, Pinin Farina separated the look of the two cars by closely identifying the cabriolet with the long-wheelbase Ferrari berlinetta (coupe).

Many enthusiasts feel the 250 GT spyder has more visual appeal and a perfromance edge on the cabriolet, but Pinin Farina originally created the cabriolet as a luxury touring car. It has better interior appointments, more soundproofing, and was better suited to the average Ferrari customer for comfortable every-day driving.
