An extremely rare sports cabriolet Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet customized by the Italian design firm Pininfarina is now being pitched at the Gooding & Company auction held in Arizona, U.S.A.

Its current owner expects to get up to U.S. $8 million for the exquisite vehicle, only 41 of which have ever been produced.

The very same car participated in the 1958 IAS Turin and the 1959 IAS New-York. Its first owner was none less than Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Faisal, who bought the vehicle straight out of the race it took part in during his California education term.

The highly unique Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet was then purchased by John Cleanard, who, despite having held on to it for forty years, refurbished it to a brand new state. The vehicle was painted bright green and trimmed on the inside with luxurious red leather.
