California '57 the year the legendary California GT was launched.
Many people consider the 'California Spider' to be the most beautiful car to emerge from Maranello, with its stunning lines and elegant form equally complimented by its performance credentials. It was designed for leisurely drives with the top down on Saturday, and racing and winning on Sunday. For discerning buyers seeking Italian style and flair of an open sports car with power, reliability, versatility, and excellent road holding and handling capabilities - none was more suited than the Ferrari 250 Granturismo Spyder California.
The booming North American market provided a lucrative opportunity for those who got the formula right, and Ferrari's success was aided by two influential dealers, Luigi Chinetti and John von Neumann. They impressed upon the factory that a dual-purpose 250 GT convertible would appeal to a segment of American clientele, specifically those with influence, wealth, style, and an inkling towards competition. Faithfully following and executing the original concept, the California Spider was given a lightweight folding top, swept-back windscreen, minimal interior appointments, and bucket seats.
The elegant bodies were designed by Pininfarina and constructed by Scaglietti.
