Ferrari 275 GTB NART Spider

by Mike -

The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 (4-cam) is one of the best sports cars of all time. So, imagine how much greater it would be if it were also a convertible?


That is exactly what Luigi Chinetti was thinking when he asked Enzo Ferrari to make a spider version of the 275GTB/4. Chinetti was the first Ferrari dealer in the US, the founder of the North American Race Team (NART) and a great race driver himself.

This request led to ten 275 GTB/4 Spiders being made for NART in 1967 and 1968 by the coach builder Scaglietti. All were sold in the US by Chinetti.

This elegant green 1968 275 GTB/4 shown here is a replica NART Spider made by the same artist who did the work on the original ten when employed by Scaglietti.

It is owned by my friend Phil White, above, and was on display at the Danville Concours d'Elegance recently. I like to see a Ferrari that is not Ferrari red and this green looks great!

  1. Color is (I think)Pino Verde.

  2. Whetever the color is called it is beautiful.

  3. Stephen - I agree and it is stunning in person. The 275 GTB style is one of the best and it looks fantastic without a top. The owner tells me that it is a a terrific driver too.
