Sold for $1,485,000 at 2014 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Arizona.
Though it lacked the power of the GTB, the GTS offered its customers a touring experience unlike any other. Consisting of a higher rear axle ration, the GTS offered its owners a comfortable, but impressive, highway performance making it the consummate means by which to experience the road and the world.

Though it was, at its very core, a 275 GTB, the 'S' stood for something else, something very important to every Ferrari fan. The 250 GT had been Ferrari's first real Cabriolet model. However, there hadn't been one since 1962. The 275 GTS would change all that. Standing for 'Spyder' the 'S' would be a very important addition to the end of the 275's initials, and this would not be lost on those at Ferrari nor at Pininfarina.

The 275 GTS would make its debut at the Paris Auto Show in October of 1964, and, though Europe may have been heading into winter, things were definitely getting much hotter with the first Ferrari convertible since the 250 GT.

However, the 'S' in GTS stood for something else. Sure, it stood for Spyder. But, it also stood for luxury offering adjustable and luxurious bucket seats, greater luggage room and a softer rise. The top itself was entirely capable of being raised or lowered with one hand. The whole of the car stood for road-going luxury. Capable of speeds in excess of 140mph, the GTS was luxury and performance in one.

While Scaglietti would be given the honor of designing a body for the GTB, it would be Pininfarina that would be given the responsibility of gracing the chassis with a suitable Spyder body that would be subtle, and yet, striking at the same time. Pininfarina already had a suitable source of inspiration. Most people were looking to Ferrari for the reincarnation of the 250GT. So, that is what Pininfarina would give them.

The influence of the 250 GT would be undeniable from its side profile to its nose, even the little details like the grille and the headlights. The GTS would certainly look like the 250 GT reborn.

The 250 GT California had been intended for and been well-received by the American audience. It would be little wonder then that most of the 275 GTS Spyders that would be built would end up in the United States.

In total, just 200 examples of the 275 GTS would be built making the car an extremely precious Ferrari model, and, from the moment of its debut in 1964, production of the car would extend only into the early part of 1966 before it would be replaced by the 330 GTS.


Chassis number 08353 would be one of those 200 rare 275 GTS Spyders to be built. In fact, this particular chassis would be example 195 of the 200, making it one of a special few built by Ferrari and Pininfarina.

Though it would be considered a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTS, the car would actually be completed and delivered to Luigi Chinetti very late in 1965. The car would be completed wearing Grigio Fumo, or smoke grey, paint and a Nero Franzi leather interior. What is interesting about this particular car is that it is believed to be the only example to be completed in the smoke grey paint as the color was becoming increasingly more rare and was not a color offered at the time.

Unfortunately, after being delivered to Chinetti in late 1965 not much else is known about the car's history. What is known is that it underwent a full restoration that was concluded in October of 2013. The whole process was meticulously documented and all of the work verified. No detail was left untouched, and, when the refinishing and restoration was complete, the car would receive a full service by Coppa Bella Motors in Seaside, California.

The documentation present with the car includes the certificate of origin from Ferrari, the U.S. Customs papers and shipping receipts in addition to the extensive documentation and invoices covering the whole of the restoration.

Beautifully representing Ferrari's answer to the beloved 250 GT, 08353 offers the beholder a glimpse of Ferrari performance and luxury. Very much a 250 GT, and yet, very much its own, the 275 GTS is yet another example of Pininfarina's ability to gracefully marry luxury and style to performance. And, with its striking color, exquisite touches and other refinements, 08353 is a fine ambassador of the uncommon line.

The 1966 Ferrari 275 GTS, chassis 08353, would be offered for sale at the 2014 RM Auctions event in Scottsdale, Arizona. Heading to auction, the rare Ferrari would be drawing estimates ranging between $1,200,000 and $1,600,000.
