Everyone loves Ferrari convertibles, yet they are so rare. It seems like, over the years, Ferrari has turned out drop-tops at just a fraction of the rate as their hardtop counterparts. Only 99 of these were built. The 330 GTS is the Pininfarina-styled convertible version of the 1966-1968 330 GTC (whose production numbered nearly 600).

It’s powered by a 300 horsepower 4.0-liter V-12 that can push the car to 150 mph. It was the followup to the short-lived, but similar-in-style 275 GTS. This example sports its rare, original colors: gold with black interior (but of course those colors have fancier, Italian names). No red respray here.

First purchased in New York City, this car has spent its entire life in the States in the hands of numerous owners. It was involved in an accident in the late 1990s and was professionally repaired. To further ease any damage fears, an extensive restoration was carried out in 2014 (and by “extensive” we mean it cost like $400k). It’s one of the nicest examples anywhere of the only 99 ever built and it should bring between $2,350,000-$2,700,000. Click here for more info and here for more from this sale.
