A Rare and Classic 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4

by Mike - 

The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is considered one of the best sports cars of all time and this one is extra special.

The 275 GTB/4 was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October 1966. It has a 3.3 liter V12 four-camshaft engine with six carburetors as standard equipment. It produces 300 hp and has a top speed of 165 MPH.

This car was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti; there were 280 made between 1966 and 1968. The body is steel and the hood, doors and the trunk lid are aluminum alloy.

This car has spent most of its 44 year life in storage and has been driven only 11,500 miles. It is a three owner car and has never been restored. It has original paint, chrome, interior, wheels, motor and even the Italian license plates are original!

This is the first time this special Ferrari has been shown and I am very happy that I was able to see this car in person at the Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance.

It would not be surprising to see this car at Pebble Beach in the preservation class.

  1. I always wanted one of these. For me the 275 GTB is the last of the really desirable Ferraris.
