AN INCREDIBLE classic Ferrari has gone up for sale after being abandoned in a garage.

The 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Series II Pininfarina Cabriolet is thought to be the last unrestored example on the planet.

It's up for sale with Gullwing Motor Cars in New York for a staggering $1,275,000 or just more than £1million.

The reason for that is the car's rarity – only 200 open-top versions of the 250 GT were ever made.
