Enzo Ferrari was always looking for an edge. Not satisfied with his company's international preeminence, he had his design team work with consultant Pininfarina to conduct a special study on aerodynamics in the months leading up to the 51st Salon de Automobile in 1964. This research led to the creation of the Ferrari 275 GTB Berlinetta. What Pininfarina came up with was a clean-looking front end, with headlights faired in beneath glass covers, and a spoiler lip on the rear, which became a trademark for Ferrari's sport and grand touring cars. Breaking with tradition, the 275 GTB was the first grand touring Ferrari to offer cast magnesium wheels instead of the traditional wire wheels. The car is powered by a 3.3-liter V12 with 320 hp, and has a claimed top speed of 165 mph. This car was purchased in 1996 by the current owner from its original owner, legendary movie producer and Ferrari collector Greg Garrison of Thousand Oaks, California. It is driven frequently on the highway and in high-speed events sponsored by the Ferrari Club of America.

The car was delivered to the current owner by Ferrari of North America as part of a multi-car transaction involving a 'one-off' special bodied 250 Ferrari that was owned by the Ferrari Factory.

The car received a minor cosmetic restoration in the late 1990s by the original owner. The current owner has maintained the car in a climate controlled environment since the purchase.

The 250 series of sports car had quickly become Ferrari's most successful early line. The model had made its debut on the circuit some three years before the first street car would be produced. This gap would provide more than enough time for the anticipation to set in. With many of the model variations coming to be listed as some of the 'Greatest Ferraris of all time' it was obvious Ferrari had a winning hand.

All Ferrari needed to do was play their cards right and the success and prestige would continue. Pinin Farina would recognize this and go on to only create an evolution of the chassis. The rest of the improvement would be made up of the 3.3-liter Colombo V12 engine that was capable of producing between 280 and 300 hp.

The model capable of turning 300 hp was the 275 GTB/4 which was first introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October of 1966. The GTB/4 stood for a four-cam engine. Combined with the six carburetor arrangement, the Colombo V12 was able to reach 300 hp and hit speeds of 165 mph.

One of those 300 hp, fire-breathing 275 GTB/4 Berlinettas, would be offered at this year's RM Auctions event in Monterey, California. Not only would this car draw its lineage from one of the most-balanced and nimble-footed Ferraris of all time, it would end up earning honors to prove the elegant Pinin Farina body is as much of what makes a car as that which lies under the bodywork and hood.

The car would remain in Italy after being produced. It would be delivered to the director of Tecnotele, S.p.A. in 1967. It would remain with the Milanese company until the early 1970s when it would end up being shipped to the United States. Bart J. McMullen had imported the car and would pass it on to its second owner, Jerry D. Leonard. Leonard had obviously become drawn to the GTB/4 as he already owned one by the time he would come to acquire 10051.

Leonard would own the Bleu Ferrari from 1973 until 1976 when he would go on to sell the car to Jim Hunter of Atlanta, Georgia. Jim Hunter was co-owner of FAF Motorcars, which is the official Ferrari dealership for the area.

The car would again be sold. After four years with Mr. Hunter, the car would change hands and become the property of Bruce Vineyard. Vineyard was a former president of the southern region of the Ferrari Owners' Club.

After nearly twenty years of ownership, Mr. Vineyard would have the car go through a complete restoration. He would contract Mike Gourley of Continental Coachworks to oversee the work. In addition to Continental Coachworks, Ferrari of Atlanta would be included to take care of the mechanical work. Charlie Kemp, of Ferrari South, would oversee completion of the cosmetic details.

When it neared completion, it was decided to complete the car in Fly Yellow with a black leather interior. Upon completion, Vineyard would go on to sell the car. He had owned the car for a quarter of a century.

In 2008, after being purchased, the car was immediately refinished to its original Ferrari Blue exterior finish. The interior would also be refinished in Bleu VM trim. Complete with Borrani wheels, a full set of tools, service manuals and historical records the car would go on to earn a First in Class and Best Closed Design award at the Dana Point Concours d'Elegance just in June of this year. Currently the car is being inspected by Ferrari Classiche and is expected to receive its full certification soon.

The gorgeous, sweeping lines of the Pinin Farina bodywork, the Colombo V12 engine, award winning history and being one of the greatest Ferraris of all time all combined to create a car that end up garnering $1,485,000 at auction.

One of the highest grossing films of 1966, a winner of three Oscars and widely considered one of the greatest motor racing films of all-time, Grand Prix was one of the most influential films in John Frankenheimer's film-making history. It was only fitting then he had a car befitting his stimulating style.

Released in late December of 1966, Grand Prix would be an incredible film-making achievement. Taking the viewer closer into the action than ever-before, and all across the glode, the movie really did offer that rare glimpse into the world of Formula One during the 1960s.

Only a couple of months before the film was to be released in theaters, Ferrari would unveil a dramatic piece of mechanical artwork. An evolution of the 275GTB,the GTB/4 was nearly identical, but it would offer a rather important upgrade. Producing around 20hp more than its predecessor, the 275 GTB/4 was its own sweeping epic on the back roads. Sadly, the showing would come with mixed emotions as it would bid farewell to the venerable front-engine V12 designs that had come to define Ferrari for years.

No doubt inspired during the shooting, John Frankenheimer would inquire of Ferrari for a left-hand drive version of the upcoming GTB/4. In mid-August, the director would be notified there would be one available. A month earlier, chassis 10451 had made the trip to Modena to Carrozzerria Scaglietti to be fitted to its elegant body. When completed, the car would come complete with a beige leather interior and a Blue Sera exterior finish. In October of that year the sale would be finalized. Frankenheimer would be at a hotel in Budapest at the time when the transaction took place.

Frankenheimer would use the car frequently during the harsh Hungarian winter and would soon have trouble with unbalanced fuel mixtures that would lead to him suffering a rather embarrassing failure right in the middle of a street. It was already a busy street, and now, there would be this beautiful Ferrari to further bring the flow to a stand-still.

Misaligned carburetors would be found to be the source of the problem and Frankenheimer would soon have his car back in his possession. In spite of the troubles, the car would continue to occupy a special place within the director's heart. The car would travel to the United States to remain in his care until he made the decision to sell it in 1971.

Karl Fekete would become the next to own 10451. Fekete lived in Inglewood, California and would find the Ferrari perfect as he would retain the car until 1986. Following the long spell with Fekete, the car would bounce around a bit. Paul Forbes would own the car for a time and the car would also make its way to Japan where it would remain for a few years passing among a couple of owners.

Although the car would pass back and forth between owners, it provenance was irresistible. Hans Thulin, famous for his Consolidator Collection based in Sweden, would own the car, as well as, Chris Cox and Bruce Male.

Male would end up being the longest serving owner of the 275 GTB/4. For two decades the car remained in his possession. During that time the car would undergo some changes. It would be during this time the Blue Sera paint would be replaced with the Fly Giallo the car still retains to this very day. More work has been completed recently. This would include a complete rebuild of the brakes and suspension, re-chroming the brightwork, all new leather and carpeting and even a complete detail of the motor and transmission.

In spite of the work, 10451 remains highly original, and its ownership history makes it among the elite 275 GTB/4s. Bright and dignified, 10451 remains a highly sought-after example of Ferrari's perhaps most definitive front-engine V-12 design.

This chassis, 10451, would be offered via RM Auctions during their 2015 Scottsdale event. Pre-auction estimates ranged from between $3,500,000 to $4,500,000.

The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 was the most powerful, and technically advanced of the production 275 GTBs. It differed from the earlier models by having dual overhead camshaft cylinder heads on each bank of cylinders, hence the GTB/4 designation. With six double choke carburetors, this engine was an evolutionary step to the 365 GTB/4 'Daytona.'

This particular car just completed a total restoration, after being disassembled for over 25 years. The restorer, Andy Greene Sports & Vintage Race Cars LLC, rebuilt the engine for the previous owner 20 years ago. The engine was never installed, and sat with the car, until 2006 when the current owner bought it. The engine was completely gone through again, and ran on the very same test rig. The body was redone by Wayne Carini, in the original color, and the interior is by Luppi of Italy in the original black.

Ferrari 275 GTB/4 with chassis number 10103 is an All-Alloy, all original, Berlinetta with less than 8000 miles on the odometer. It was in the collection of a well-known Ferrari enthusiast for over twenty-years before being offered for sale at the 2004 RM Auction at Amelia Island where the car sold for $682,000.

There is believed to be fifteen such documented examples similar to this one. It is a very rare and original automobile that is truly spectacular and well preserved. There were 785 examples of the 275 Berlinetta's constructed with an assortment of variations. Some were constructed of steel while others were of alloy. Some had 2-cams while others had four. Some were short nosed while others had long. Three and six-carburetor, various driveshaft designs, different clutch types, and more make many of these vehicles very unique.

The fifteen examples of the 275 that left the shop of Scaglietti clothed entirely of aluminum where lighter than the others and were intended for serious competition. The four-cam engine provided a large amount of torque which made these machines very fast with performance to match.

The Ferrari with chassis number 10103 is seen at the 2007 Cavallino Classic.

The Ferrari 275 GTB was given a Tipo 226 V12 engine with twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. It was capable of developing as much horsepower as Ferrari's competition twin camshaft engines. The Tipo 226 engine had new quad-cam system with a dry sump oiling system which preventing the engine from oil starvation in any event, even the most g-force cornering situation. Six twin-choke Weber carburetors supplied the fuel to the engine and providing an astonishing amount of mid-range torque. The Colombo-based 60-degree 300 horsepower engine was capable of carrying the car to speeds of 160 MPH. The drive-shaft, engine and rear-mounted transaxle were combined in one sub-assembly and mounted to the chassis at four points. This resulted in a near 50/50 weight distribution.

The vehicle with chassis number 09337 was sold to Mediana, Italy. It had assembly sequence number 18 and body number 0025. In 1970 it was purchased by Dr. Bill Jackson of L.A who retained the car for twenty years. In 1988 the vehicle was sold for $1,075,000 to the Auto Toy Store. It was sold to Jim Dewson in 1993 that showed it at the Ferrari Nationals in 1995. It was acquired in 2003 by Jim Spiro. He retained the car for a very short time, selling the car to Mark Minkin. Minkin had the car restored. After the restoration it was shown at the Cavallino Classic where it was awarded a Platinum and a 'Coppa Bella Machina'. It was then acquired by its next owner who had another restoration performed on the vehicle. It was shown again at the 2006 Cavallino Classic where it scored 99 points and was awarded another Platinum Award.

The 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auction in Monterey, Ca where it was estimated to sell for $750,000-$950,000. The beauty of the car and the wonderful restoration drove the bidding to nearly one-million dollars. The vehicle found a new owner selling at $990,000.

The Ferrari 275 GTB was introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in October of 1964 and was the successor of the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. It was fitted with a fully independent suspension, which was an important improvement to the road-going Ferrari cars and a technology that had been tested, developed, and proven in their sports racing cars beginning with the Testa Rosa in the early 1960s. The design was courtesy of Pininfarina and Scaglietti was tasked with creating the coachwork.

At the 1966 Paris Salon, Ferrari introduced the next evolution of the 275 GTB, the 275 GTB/4. It had an increase in track by 24mm; besides that, the chassis remained unchanged. The body remained the same with the exception of a small hood bulge which provided extra room for the carburetors. Under the hood was the most significant change, the addition of four overhead camshafts, two per cylinder bank. This revised powerplant, known as the Tipo 226, was able to produce the same amount of power as Ferrari's competition twin-camshaft engine. It featured many engine modifications directly related to Ferrari's racing program. The list includes a dry sump oiling system for the new quad-cams, and six twin-choke Weber carburetors. Top speed was in the neighborhood of 160 mph making it a very capable car both on and off the track.

This vehicle, chassis number 10253, is a left-hand driver version that was delivered new in August 1967 to the official dealer M.G. Crepaldi S.a.S. in Milan Italy. It was later exported to the United States. By 1977, the car was listed in the Ferrari Owners Club membership directory as being owned by a San Francisco, California resident named Donald L. Holsworth. In 1982, it was offered for sale by Bruce Trenery's Fantasy Junction in Emeryville, California. At the time, the odometer read 33,207 miles.

Since then, the car has been treated to a professional, nut-and-bolt, ground-up restoration. It has been judged 100 points on two occasions; the first was the in 2007 where it earned the Excellence Cup at the XVI Palm Beach Cavallino Classic. At the 43rd Annual Ferrari Club of America International Meet, Field and Driving Concours, at Corning, New York, it earned its second 100 point inspection.

In 2008, this vehicle was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It had an estimated value of $1,600,000,000 - $1,800,000. The lot was sold for a high bid of $1,925,000, including buyer's premium.

The 275 GTB/4 was the first Ferrari street car to use a four camshaft engine, which produced 300 horsepower from its 3.3-liter capacity.

The body was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti. This car is one of about 15 cars built with all-alloy body; all other 300 and 275 GTB/4s were steel-bodied.

The current owner had the car since 1978 and had it restored in 2002.

This vehicle, chassis number 09501, was completed on January 30th of 1967 and sent to Luigi Chinetti Motors of Greenwich, Connecticut in March 1967. A short time later, the car was on display at the 11th New York Auto Show held from April 1-9, 1967.

The car came from the factory equipped with power windows, full leather seats, radio, and instruments in miles. It did not have air conditioning, but a unit was retro-fitted in the 1972-1976 period using the 330 GT/Daytona system. In the 1990s, it was upgraded to incorporate a contemporary rotary compressor.

The present owners have owned this alloy-bodied coupe since January 6th of 1977. In 1998, it was given a two-year restoration and made its post restoration debut at the Orlando area Concorso Portofino in 2001 where it won a First FCA Sebring and Washing, DC Nationals in 2001 to 2006 period.

In 2010, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $1,350,000 - $1,750,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $1,265,000 including buyer's premium.

There were 330 examples of the 275 GTB/4 four-cam examples built between 1966 and 1968. The car was completed at teh Maranello factory in June of 1967 and delivered the following month through the official Ferrari dealer in Rome, Motor S.a.s., to American resident Tony Little living in the area. It was sold to its second owner on January 9th of 1968 for the sum of 4.1 million. By 1980, the car was owned by Jake Weaver with the odometer displaying just 17,000 miles. It was sold a year later through Continental Motors of Chicago to Neal Shevin of Evanston, Illinois. Mr. Shevin retained the car for the next 26 years. In 2007, it was sold to Stan Makres of Michigan. The current owner purchased the car later that year.

This vehicle has Borrani wire wheels with correct Michelin XWX radial tires, an original factory option with the open-air design aiding brake cooling. Currently, the odometer shows less than 24,000 miles.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Az. It was estimated to sell for $1,000,000 - $1,300,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $1,000,000 including buyer's premium.

This three owner car has been stored for 39 of its 44 year history. It currently has 11,500 original miles and is one of the lowest mileage unrestored 275 4-Cams in existence. The car has original paint, chrome, interior, wheels and motor. The original Italian license plates are on the car today.

The car was purchased in Milan Italy in 1967 and driven for 10,000 miles. In 1970, the car was sold to Colonel Dave Page who was stationed in Italy. Colonel Page had the car shipped to California, drove it for several hundred miles and due to cam problems, stored it from 1972-1996.

The car was sold from the estate of Colonel Page to a resident of Rhode Island, in 1996. The owner had the car inspected and re-conditioned by an Arizona resident. Since 1996 the car was driven only 20+ miles and spent most of its life on jacks, thus putting no strain on the wheels or suspension.

Three hundred thirty 275 4-Cams were produced through 1968.

The all-new 275GTB was launched by Ferrari at the Paris Auto Show in late-1964. It was the start of a whole new generation of Ferraris that would continue to offer the dual-purpose nature of the earlier cars, but with a bit more comfort and a few less ragged edges. The GTB designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti, placed a new emphasis on aerodynamics, but more importantly, it offered independent suspension front and rear. The move away from a live rear axle allowed Ferrari to re-think the rest of the drivetrain layout resulting in a five-speed gearbox at the rear of the car in unit with the final drive as a transaxle. This immediately gave the car a more compact transmission tunnel and thus, more interior room as well as better balance. Joining the engine and rear-mounted transaxle was a rigid torque tube.

Power is supplied by a Colombo V-12 enlarged to 3.3 litres, initially with two cams. The four cam version, launched at the Paris Auto Show in 1966 and dubbed the GTB4, became the first Ferrari road car engine with double overhead camshafts to each cylinder bank. Standard was six Weber carbs and dry sump lubrication enabling the car to produce 300 horsepower while revving to 8000 RPM while affording a top speed of 160 mph with wonderful flexibility and refinement. About 280 four-cam cars were built through 1966 and 1967 when the model was replaced by the 365GTB4 (Daytona).

This car was delivered to Ferrari importer Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut, in January 1967, less than a year after its debut at the Paris Auto Salon. It was Ferrari's first twin-overhead cam road car and was visually almost indistinguishable from the first long-nose 275 except for the tell-tale bulges in its redesigned bonnet. Bodied by Scaglietti and designed by Pininfarina, the 275 GTB/4 echoed the appearance of the 250 Tour de France with its long hood, fastback roofline, and Kamm tail.

Edward Skae, Jr. purchased the car new from Chinetti Motors later in 1968. One year after purchasing it he sold the car to Carl C. Gagliano of Lake Forest, Illinois. Over the next 40 years it rarely saw the road and in 2009 the car only had 9,000 original miles. Today the car remains in time capsule condition retaining its original paint, interior, tires and mufflers

Enzo Ferrari introduced his revised Ferrari 275 GTB at the Paris Auto Salon in October of 1966. Not shown for many years, this is one of 15 alloy-bodied 275 GTB/4s built. A wedding gift from the Prince of Milan to a Swiss couple named Annexe, the car was delivered by the Swiss importer Societe Anonyme pour la Vente des Automobiles Ferrari and later shipped to Montreal, where it remained for most of its life. In 1974, it was painted metallic brown and fitted with a factory electric sunroof. It has been returned to its original configuration for its new owner, and it won Best of Show in the GT class at the Cavallino Classic in 2012.

This coupe is a European-specification 275 GTB/4 with a radio, instruments in kilometers, and power widows. The seats were specified to be two centimeters higher than standard. The car was delivered new by S.V.E.A. S.p.A., of Beri, to Officine Romanazzi S.p.A., of Rome, and it was finished in the color scheme of Argento over Beige leather. It spent two years in Rome; in 1969, it was sold by Romanazzi to its second owner, Pietro Achilli of Milan. The car was exported from Achilli to Montreal, Quebec, in 1972, in the hands of Laurent Lemire. Later, in the mid-1970s, the Ferrari passed to Michael Stroffregen, of Downsview, Ontario, who cared for it for over a decade. During this time, it was entered by Stoffregen at the 15th annual Ferrari Club of America National Meeting at Road Atlanta in Georgia in 1978.

In 1990, the car sold this four-cam car to an enthusiast in Toronto, who had it finished in traditional Rosso Corsa and fitted with a black leather interior. Ownership passed to Bill Jennings, of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and then to actor Nicolas Cage.

After leaving its celebrity ownership, the car remained in Southern California.

Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October of 1966, the 275 GTB/4 (or four-cam) was a substantially updated car, built by Sergio Scaglietti. It featured new bodywork and was the first Ferrari to not be offered with wire wheels.

Power came from a substantially reworked Colombo V12, still with two valves per cylinder, but now with a four-cam engine and six carburetors as standard. In a departure from previous Ferrari designs, the valve angle was reduced three degrees to 54 inches for a more compact head. The dual camshafts also allowed the valves to be aligned 'correctly' (perpendicular to the camshaft) instead of offset as in the SOHC Ferraris. It was a dry-sump design with a large 17 quarter (16 L) capacity.

The transaxle was also re-designed. A torque tube connected the engine and transmission, rather than allowing them to float free on the body as before. This improved handling, noise, and vibration. Porsche synchronizers were also fitted for improved shifting and reliability.

The Ferrari 275 GTB series was launched at the 1964 Paris Auto Show and marked the beginning of an entirely new lineup of Ferrari road cars with more of an emphasis on aerodynamics, the 275 GTB. Designed by Pininfarina and built by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, it has a much more aggressive appearance than its predecessor, the 250 GT Lusso.

The 3.3-liter V12, a reworked Colombo-designed 'short-block' engine delivered power to the rear wheels through a torque tube and a new five-speed transaxle. It was the first Ferrari to be offered without wire-wheels and also the first to be fitted with independent front and rear suspension.

Rave reviews greeted the 275 GTB in 1965. 'Autosport' magazine tested a GTB with the optional six carburetors which easily managed a cruising speed of 160 mph; the editor called it 'a car so good it comes close to perfection.'

This stunning 275 GTB/4 example, finished in Fly Yellow (a nice change from the popular Ferrari Red) is one of almost 800 Berlinettas produced between 1964 and 1968.

The first Ferrari 275 GTB was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti in 1964 and was followed with an updated version launched at the 1965 Paris Auto Show. This long-nose edition had a lengthened and lowered nose, designed to reduce front-end lift at high speeds. Its rear window was enlarged for better visibility, and the trunk hinges were now on the outside. Then Ferrari responded to strong competition from other sports car manufacturers with the Ferrari 275 GTB/4, shown at the 1966 Paris Auto Show. It was identical to the long-nose Ferrari 275 GTB save for a bulge on the hood to accommodate a revised 3.3-ltier quad-cam V12 derived from Ferrari's 1965 prototype racers. The 275 GTB/4 was enjoyed by many famous people, including actor Steve McQueen and film director Roman Polanski.

Ferrari's 275 model followed the all-conquering 250 series. It was the first road going Ferrari to carry independent rear suspension as well as a rear-mounted transaxle. The car became available in 1965 and the coupe and convertible wear completely unique profiles. Evolutionary changes began in 1966. They included a longer nose, and a new grill. Shortly after, the 275 GTB became the 275 GTB/4, sporting a newly designed 12 cylinder engine using four camshafts and producing 300 horsepower. There were also 20 cars producing in two competition variants, the 275 GTB/C and the 275 GTS/4.

This car was given a body-off restoration in 1994. It was acquired by the current owners in 2010.

This Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is an original example that spent three decades in static storage. The history traces back to February 11th of 1967 when Ferrari issued the certificate of origin. It is an early-production 'four-cam' model that was finished in Bleu Chiaro (Light Blue) with black leather upholstery and light gray carpets. It was destined for sale in Italy, so it was given instrumentation in kilometers, a Blaupunkt radio, driver's-side headrest, Campagnolo cast wheels, and a chromed grille guard.

This 275 GTB/4 was delivered to Ferrari concessionaire Vecar S.r.l. and sold on February 23, 1967 and sold from their Piazza Verdi showroom in Rome to its first owner, Loredana Gabriella Giglio, a 24-year-old woman living on Via Castelfranco Veneto. It was first registered in Italy as 'Roma A32545' and maintained by the Ferrari Factory Assistenza Clienti in Modena through September 1968, by which time the car had accrued approximately 25,000 km.

On October 10th of 1969, it was sold through Auto Roma S.r.l. to its second Roman owner, Massimiliano Mornielli di Crestvohut. It is believed the car remained in his care until March of 1971 when it was sold to Stefano Dolari. In late 1971 or early 1972, the car was sold to an American car enthusiast traveling through Europe and exported to the US. The buyer was John Doonan of Rockville, Maryland.

In March of 1972, it was purchased by a John Doonan of Massachusetts for $5,500. In 1982, he retired the car from the road. Since that time, it has not been started, driven or registered. It has been stored in his garage in eastern Massachusetts known only to family and friends.

The car is painted blue which was refinished once in the 1970s.

A year earlier Ferrari introduced the 275 4-cam 3.3-liter V12 attached to a torque tube transmission. In one small move Ferrari eliminated the 'open' drive shaft between motor/5-speed gearbox and the rear end. It became, effectively, one unit and eliminated all causes of excessive vibration. This is a second series, steel bodied car, of which approximately 330 were built between 1966 and 1968. The 275 was, of course, the stepping-stone between the 250 SWB series of street cars starting in 1959 and the succeeding 365 Daytona series beginning in 1968.

Originally delivered in August 1967 through Cripaldi, the official Ferrari dealer in Milan. The car was exported by the first owner to South Africa where it remained for 13 years. It was then exported to the United Kingdom where it remained until 2007. It was then sent to Australia and underwent a complete restoration before coming to the United States. The car is powered by a 3.3-liter 4-cam V12 engine producing 300 horsepower and is capable of 166 mph.

The V12-engined 275 GT Berlinetta was introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1964 and was followed by the more powerful GTB/4 with additional twin camshafts and six twin-choke Weber carburetors. The 275 GTB/4 was the last of the great front-engined Ferrari GTs, and it offers one of the most rewarding driving experiences of all the road-going Ferrari sports cars.

This is one of 16 alloy-bodied 275 GTB/4s with coachwork designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti. This car was enjoyed by several owners on the East Coast before it headed West in 2003. Its current owner commissioned a complete restoration and engine rebuild in 2007 and has since won several concours awards.
During the late sixties, Ferraris road-oriented berlinettas split in terms of design from their race cars. After the 250 short wheelbase berlinetta, the dual purpose road / race Ferrari seemed gone. This new distinction motivated Ferrari to manufacture more civil road cars having impressive specification. The first example of this new trend was the 275 GTB.

The 275 GTB/GTS was debuted in October 1964 at the Paris Salon. It was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scagliettie. The 275 GTB was based on the 250 GT Berlinetta Lusson and the 250 GTO. The GTS version drew styling from the 330 GT 2+2. Production continued through 1966.

The fastback Berlinetta coupe was the GTB series. This version was meant for driving on the road and at the track. The Open Spyder was the GTS series designed to replace the 250 California. This version was more comfortable and more suited for touring. Around 200 examples of the GTS were created during its two year production.

Being light, powerful and strikingly beautiful, the 275 was a very successful car for Ferrari. It sold well, with around 1000 examples made, and, as an afterthought, scored victories in endurance racing after the 250 LM was denied homologation.

By moving the transmission to rear of the car, better weight distribution was achieved. The engine used was a Colombo-derived V-12 engine that produced 260 horsepower in the GTS and 280 horsepower in the GTB. With the GTB version, an option was given to the buyer to purchase the vehicle with three or six Weber carburetors.

In 1965, Ferrari created three examples of the 275 GTB for the purpose of endurance motor sport racing. The vehicles were dubbed the 275 GTB/C and outfitted with a light-weight aluminum body, air vents for the brakes, six carburetors, and a 320 horsepower engine, and a few other minor mechanical modifications.

In 1966 the 275 GTB was re-introduced with a four-cam version of the V12. Six Webber carburetors aided in delivering around 300 horsepower. To cope with the new power, the GTB/4 was given wider tires and a ZF limited-slip differential. The 4 in the name GTB/4 represented the twin camshafts per cylinder bank totaling four. This was the first quad-cam road-going Ferrari ever created. It was easily distinguished by its bulge in the hood. During its production run lasting until 1968, around 320 examples of the 275 GTB/4 were created.

The 275 P and P2 were purpose built to Capture the World Championship and in the process beat Ford. The 275 P was powered by a 3.3-liter powerplant; a 4 and 4.4 liter version were also used. These mid-engined, open-topped cars were comprised of many of the same components as the road-going versions.

Celebrity Owned 1963 Ferrari 250GT Lusso Set to Take Center Stage at Russo and Steele Monterey 2015!
Scottsdale, Arizona (April 15, 2015) – By the early 1960s, Ferrari's racing and street cars began to diverge in basic essence, with the Scuderia's competition cars quickly becoming more specialized and the road cars reflecting the growing demand among Ferrari buyers for more comfort and luxury. Debuted at Paris in 1962, the Grand Touring-oriented 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso of 1963-64 was quite similar in appearance to the outgoing 250 GT SWB (short wheelbase) Berlinettas of 1959-62, but outf...[Read more...]
