RM Auctions‘ avarice-inducing Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este sale takes place in Italy this weekend so we’re bringing you one final piece of automotive eye candy to carry you through.

This 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder, one of only 50 built, was originally owned by an Italian nobleman, Prince Alvise Hercolani of Bologna.

The 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spyder, one of only 50 built, expected to fetch up to $3 million

The rare and exclusive example has even more rare and exclusive details including a hardtop and Superamerica side vents.

An aristocratic auto indeed, but these days available to anyone with a measly $3 million.
