A 1960’s Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet does not come up for sale that often, so if like us you dream of owning one then you might be one step closer to realising that. Ferrari collectors are keeping a close eye on Sotheby’s 18th-19th of January, 2018 Auction in Arizona, where a selection of rare and delectable Maranello models are due to go under the hammer. Some of the models consigned to the auction are certain to attract the serious collector, not least a glorious Pininfarina- bodied 1960 250GT Cabriolet, one of the prettiest of the drop-top Ferraris of the era. A guide price of between $1,400,000 and $1,800,000 is estimated, and the car is to be sold with no reserve.

One of the more interesting lots is a 1969 Dino 206GT, by Scaglietti, finished in the requisite red and offered at a price of in excess of $625,000 – but again coming to auction with no reserve. This extremely rare car – surely one of the prettiest Ferraris of all – is the smaller brother of the fabled 246GT Dino (there’s one of these in the auction, too) and is preferred by many thanks to being unadorned by the later flared arches of the bigger-engined car.
An up and coming classic, one that is attracting collectors looking for a sound future investment, is the 365GT4 Berlinetta Boxer. The 1975 model in the Sotheby’s sale is finished in a classy dark blue with black, and carries a guide price of a very reasonable $450,000 upwards. Experts regard this model as a ‘sleeper’, one that is still reasonably priced but sure to appreciate.
The star of the show, perhaps, is a quite stunning 1964 250GT Berlinetta Lusso by Scaglietti. Regarded as one of the finest driver’s cars of all time, as well as one of the most beautiful of all Ferraris, this one is a pristine example that – with an estimated price of between $1,800,000 and $2,200,000 – is still priced sensibly compared to other very rare classics of the era.
With consignments for the auction still being taken it may be worth registering for a catalogue for what promises to be a very interesting sale. We will be sure to report back on the results.
