It was Luigi Chinetti who insisted that Ferrari create an open version of the 250, also and above all intended for the American market. Equipped with the 3-liter 12-cylinder engine, the car appeared in December 1957 under the name of 250 GT California. Scaglietti designed a body with clean and elegant lines, in steel alloy with aluminum moving parts (some units entirely made of aluminum were built for competitive use). The first models were equipped with Plexiglas covers on the headlights, which were replaced in 1958 by a configuration without covers and with a slightly different wheel arch design. Another restyling came in 1959, with new side air outlets, chrome profiles around the headlights and a different air intake. In 1960 the original California gave way to a short wheelbase version based on the 250 GT SWB chassis.
