Story and History

As New Condition in the Style of the James Coburn's SWB

A Ferrari 250 is by its' very nature quite a special thing, they represent an all time peak in Ferraris history and their road racing pedigree

From MMs to LMs, SWBs or GTOs there is one 250 Ferrari which seems to always rise high above the rest and it of course is the California Spyder

The California Spyder brought together all the components needed to create automotive bliss, beautiful engine, beautiful design, beautiful drive, beautiful sound, an open top and a prancing horse. Naturally this comes at a significant cost way into the eight figure department

1019 GT was delivered new by Ferrari in December 1958 as a 250 GT Pininfarina Coupe, wearing the same 'nero' colour as she is now although much else has changed

In the mid 80s Giovanni Giordanengo, a well known builder of Ferrari bodies, responsible for many SWB's, California Spyder's and Testarossa's in period, was it seems answerable for this sensational beauty

Execution is almost flawless with exceptional panel gaps alongside mirror like finish to all body panels, whilst the performance is shattering for a car from 1958

She sat proudly in the collection of famed connoisseur Johann Rupert, Chairman of Richemont Group (think Cartier, IWC, Mont Blanc, A Lange & Sohne, Dunhill etc etc) for many years until eventually she was sold in 2006 to the founding partner of fashion brands Karen Millen & All Saints - Kevin Stanford

Mr Stanford was quite the car collector too and 1019 GT kept good company whilst in his collection - Enzo, Gullwing, Bugatti etc -

Sold again to the last owner, who purchased her via DK Engineering, he undertook some £55.000 worth of updating to make her in the most immaculate condition, which you now see in the pictures - all invoices on file

Without a doubt they've done a stellar job because she is just such a joy to drive as well as to look at!!

1019 GT is a very special motor, who understandably has spent all of her recent life in the care of some of the worlds foremost collectors and would sit well any collection
