After Ferrari’s first regular production Coupe was launched in 1958, its cabriolet version followed shortly after. A series of 40 cabriolets were built until the model was updated to Series II specification. These included side vents, discs brakes and telescopic shock absorbers.
The 250 GT Cabriolet was truly a gentleman’s Ferrari. More at home cruising the coastline of the South of France than rocketing down the Mulsanne Straight, these cars were built for individuals who respected Ferrari’s racing pedigree yet wanted a car that was much more civilized and comfortable than its racing counterparts. This meant personalization played a key role; in many cases, the owner’s wishes were Ferrari’s command.
Upon its debut in 1959 at the Paris Motor Show, the second series 250 GT cabriolet offered a variety of subtle changes over the first series models. This included open headlamps with a slightly more rounded nose and elongated tail lamp lenses. Slightly more space in the interior and trunk also made long journeys more comfortable. Ferrari additionally fitted it with the updated, outside-plug version of the Colombo V-12, designated Tipo 128F. Over the course of three years of production, just 200 Series II Cabriolets were produced. This was an exquisite machine for exquisite customers with exquisite taste.

Ух и намучался я с этой моделью, пролистывая просторы сети в поисках подходящей фотографии оригинала. ББР не всегда снабжают всякими там подсказками в виде номера шасси или принадлежности машины какой-нибудь знаменитости.
Это как раз один из тех, так называемых, безымянных случаев. То воздухозаборник на капоте и клыки на бампере (модель 1962 года), то без воздухозаборника, но и клыков нету.
И вот сегодня кто-то сверху видимо мне помог. Была найдена черно-белая картинка, которая вроде как очень подошла и с капотом, и с клыками.
