The 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder is easily one of the most beautiful cars ever in production, but even after the last run off the line, there were only 50 gracing the world. Odds are, you’re not one of the owners. With Prince Alvise Hercolani of Bologna’s model recently up for auction through RM Auctions, however, and a number more for sale in the last 6 months, they’re popping up ever more increasingly. With a removable hardtop and sumptuous Superamerica side vents, nevermind a surprising amount of power under the hood, full leather upholstery and the classic wooden steering wheel, it’s no surprise they normally pull around $3m.
