Introduced in 1960, the Series II 250 GT Pininfarina represented Ferrari's increasing tendency towards production road cars, both to showcase the technology tested in racing, and to provide income to support racing. The cars were elegant, understated, and luxurious. They were available as both open and closed cars. Fitted with the powerful 3-litre V-12, the 250 GT is in many ways the quintessential classic Ferrari. The cabriolets, with their fully lined tops, provide generous space for both passengers and luggage.
This Ferrari 250 GT Series II Cabriolet Speciale was built and originally sold in 1960 to the well-known Belgian industrialist and Ferrari aficionado Jean Blaton, a long-term friend and patron of Enzo Ferrari. Mr. Blaton was a Belgian billionaire, whose fortune was attributed to real estate and construction companies. As a prominent and successful gentleman racing driver, he drove Ferraris using the pseudonym, "Beurlys", when racing. Many of his cars scored great success in the 24 hour Le Mans Endurance race in the 1950s and the 1960s.
