This is most likely the second PF200 Cabriolet produced. Compared to the original show car it already features a slightly more subtle design. The prominent grille, for example, is no longer a perfect circle but oval shaped. Its early history is not entirely clear but it entered long term American ownership in 1968. In 1974 some bodywork issues were addressed and a decade later the car was repainted silver. Since then it was shown extensively at many of the major events in the United States, including the Pebble Beach and Greenwich concours.

After more than three decades, the owner finally decided to part with his PF200 in 2005. He offered the car in the Christie's Monterey Jet Center auction where it changed hands for $257,000. The new owner, another American collector, delivered the car to Pininfarina a few years later for a complete restoration. During the meticulous process, the original metallic green paint was discovered. In addition to the fresh paint, many of the other modifications made over the years were corrected. The triple exhaust-pipes were missing, for example. The end result was first revealed at the 2010 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este where it is pictured here.
