The line of beauty: The fabled Côte d'Azur, the Mediterranean coast of the South of France, provides the perfect backdrop for the covetable 250 GT California Spider. Long favoured by the aristocracy, the Riviera is one of the original 'Playgrounds of Europe', irrevocably associated with Le Jet Set. Brigitte Bardot, coquettish French film star and California Spider owner, moved to the modern Riviera resort of St. Tropez in 1958, where her villa, La Madrague, has long exercised a fascination for tourists. Ferrari's views on women were immovable: "In the motor racing world there is enough complication as it is without bringing women into it to create more."
