Most of us will never get the chance to own a Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder. The gorgeous droptop is not only one of the best Ferraris ever, but examples routinely rank among the most expensive cars ever sold at auction, never going for less than 8 figures these days. But GTO Engineering is making the car a bit more affordable (though still very expensive) with their latest revival.

The California Spyder Revival from GTO Engineering is a hand-built, meticulously crafted recreation of the most famous Ferrari convertible. The cars are built to order from a buyer-supplied donor car (the example here uses a Ferrari 250 GTE as a base), and owners can customize the car to their exact specifications. Buyers can choose between different engine and gearbox options along with their choice of heritage color paint jobs and interior details. Pricing is variable depending on options chosen and other factors, but the company expects a range from £750,000-£850,000 (~$1 million to $1.175 million) plus your donor car. That’s a decent chunk of change, but it sure beats $10-15 million. The GTO Engineering California Spyder Revival is set to make its live debut at the Goodwood Revival in the U.K. from September 17 to September 19.

Purchase: $1,000,000+
