This gorgeous 275 GTB is One of just 4 Right Hand Drive, Alloy- bodied 6 carbs car built by Ferrari. The 275 was a breathtaking grand touring car in the 1960s, it was powered by the legendary front-mounted 3.3-litre Colombo V12, the same engine as legends like the 250 GTO. Ferrari claimed the engine made 280 hp and importantly it was the first road car from the brand to use a transaxle & independent rear suspension technology it had used in previous race cars like the 250 Testa Rossa.


Styled by Pininfarina and manufactured by Scaglietti starting in 1964, The car was used in competition as a response to the FIA refusing to homologate the 250 LM for GT class racing. The 275s were used both as a factory racer and a customer race car and impressively it finished third overall at Le Mans in 1965.

THIS MOTOR CAR:


Built in January 1966, this bespoke 275 GTB was painted in a special dark green (Verde Scuro Speciale) that was reproduced from a sample sent to Maranello by the original customer. The car was right-hand drive, with an interior trimmed with Black leather, and specified with six carburettors and wire wheels. It was delivered to the UK importer of the time, Maranello Concessionaires. This example was purchased from the UK by the current keeper, imported and first registered in Hong Kong in 2012. The car has remained here for the next 5 years until it was sent back to the experts of the Ferrari Classiche Department in Maranello Italy, to be meticulously restored. As part of an extensive 2+ years refurbishment programme, the chassis was fully checked and serviced, the body repaired where required, and the engine overhauled. No rocks were unturned and every single detail was attended to. The aim was to restore the car back to its original specification, just like the day it was delivered in the 60s.


Because of Enzo Ferrari’s fastidious documentation process, there is an unparalleled historical archive in Maranello that carries the information, down to the tiniest detail, for each and every car. Thanks to documents such as the original build sheet that outlines the vehicle’s specifications, along with the designs of each component, and supporting items such as the bill of materials and the sales papers, we can say that the car is now exactly as she was when delivered by them in period.


This is the very car that was featured in a video (see below) Ferrari has produced, showing their Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 driver Charles Leclerc acquaints himself with the meticulously restored 275 GTB around Fiorano test track to celebrate the brand’s history and heritage.
