Seems fitting, doesn’t it, that the revival of the California Spyder would take place at the Goodwood Revival gathering taking place this weekend in the UK. British-based GTO Engineering says it will reveal the third model in its Revival series, the California Spyder Revival, on its stand September 17.
However, it also provided these photos of the car in advance:
“Originally designed by Pininfarina and magnificently completed by Scaglietti, the California Spyder is without a doubt one of the best collaborations to ever leave the gates of Maranello,” GTO Engineering said in its pre-show news release. “A total of 106 California Spyders were produced by Ferrari in SWB and LWB guise, making it one of the rarest models to be made.
“Today, the original vehicles that remain are invariably only found in the highest level of specialist collections, rarely seen on the open road or unchanged from their original factory specifications.
In contrast, the California Spyder Revival byGTO Engineeringcan be customized, whether that be upgraded engines, gearboxes or interior and exterior colour options.”
GTO Engineering will offer its Spyder Revival cars with 3.0-, 3.5- or 4.0-liter engines mated to 4- or 5-speed manual transmissions.
It adds that each car will be hand-built, “a process that takes over 1,500-man hours.”
The revival cars are based on the 1960 Ferrari version, GTO Engineering noted. It previously has done revival versions of the 250 SWB and the 250 Testa Rossa.
Pricing of the GTO Engineering California Spyder Revival models range from £750,000 to £850,000 ($1.0375 million to $1.176 million), “depending on donor vehicle, final specification, local taxes and shipping,” the company added. Deliveries are scheduled to begin at the end of 2021.
