Coachwork: Pininfarina
Chassis #: 08005
Engine #: 08005
Sold for $1,127,500 at 2013 Gooding and Company - The Amelia Island Auction.
Ferrari introduced a new breed of 12-cylinder sports cars - the 275 GTB and 275 GTS - in October of 1964. Both cars shared the same wheelbase, 3.3-liter V-12 engine, and rear-mounted transaxle, but they were targeted at two very different clientele.

The Berlinetta was a dual-purpose machine. The Spider, however, was a refined sports car meant for high-speed touring and regular road use. The chassis of the 275 GTS was engineered by Ferrari specialists to meet or exceed the demands of their motorists. The Tipo 213 engine was tuned for low-end torque while taller gear ratios offered greater flexibility at high-speeds. These refinements meant the 275 GTS was one of the fastest open two-seaters of the mid-1960s. They could go from a stand-still to a quarter-mile in 14 seconds with top speed achieved at nearly 145 mph.

The 275 GTS wore coachwork by Pininfarina and had a compact design inspired by the 330 GT 2+2. Outfitted with fully adjustable bucket seats, a tasteful wood veneer dashboard, and a neatly integrated soft top, the 275 GTS had nearly every creature comfort. Pricing for these Italian beauties was listed at $13,000.

The 275 GTS received continual updating during its brief production run with features such as light alloy wheels, a rigid driveshaft, and a new style of fender vent that would be carried over into the 330 series. The 330 GTS replaced the 275 GTS in 1966, after just 200 examples of the 3.3-liter spider had been built.

This Car
Chassis number 08005 is the 186th example built. Being one of the later models, it features numerous chassis and stylistic improvements introduced throughout the 200-car production run.

The chassis was completed at the Ferrari factory in September of 1965. It was then sent to Carrozzeria Pininfarina in Torino where it received body number 175. Completed in February 1966, the car was finished the color scheme of Nocciola over Beige Scuro and equipped with instrumentation in miles.

The car was imported to the United States through official distributor Luigi Chinetti Motors in New York and sold new to a Mr. Slate of Los Angeles. In 1970, the car was sold to a resident of Oregon and registered as 'FDW 655'.

In 2000 the car was purchased by Mr. Robert Brower of Carmel, California. At the time, the odometer showed just 48,000 miles. A restoration soon followed, after which the car was refinished in a red-over-black combination. The freshly restored Ferrari made its debut at the 2003 Cavallino Concours at Concorso Italian and captured an FCA Gold Award.

During the summer of 2004, Mr. Brower shipped the GTS to Italy to participated in the Ferrari factory 275 Tour through Tuscany and returned to California in time to display the car at the annual Monterey Gatherings, including the FCA national Concours at Quail Lodge and Concorso Italiano. In November, the 275 GTS was certified by the Ferrari Classiche department, who confirmed that 08005 still has its original body, chassis, and major components, including the correct, matching numbers engine and transaxle.

The 275 GTS was shown at the August 2005 Cavallino Concours at Concorso Italiano and judged by marque specialists Sam Smith, Allan Boe, and Allen Bishop. It received a near-perfect score of 99.5-points, thereby earning the FCA's Platinum Award. This was followed by a First in Class win during Ferrari's 60th Anniversary Concours at Fiorano in June of 2007. In August 2008, it was shown at the Carmel-by-the-Sea Concours on the Avenue and the FCA Pacific Region meet at Concorso Italian where it received a second near-perfect score and Platinum Award. In 2010, it was shown at the Quail Motorsports Gathering.

This car retinas its full tool kit, jack, complete set of owners' handbooks, the Ferrari Classiche Red Book, and a history report compiled by Marcel Massini.
