Sport is never far from the design studios of Scaglietti, Pininfarina and Ferrari. The 275 GTB/4S is the first Ferrari street car powered by a four-cam version of Ferrari's immortal Colombo-designed V-12 engine and the first equipped with a transaxle and independent rear suspension. These cars were competition stand outs on the classic road courses.
In 1965, the second year of the Ford vs Ferrari Le Mans wars, a 275 GTB finished a remarkable third overall in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A year later at the height of the Dearborn and Maranello wars, a 275 GTB finished eighth overall and was the first Ferrari under the checkered flag. A 275 GTB won Le Mans' big GT class in 1967. It took the bigger and more powerful Ferrari 365 GTB4 until 1971 to replace the successful 275 GTB on Le Mans' over three-liter GT podium. A NART Spider version of the 275 GTB was Steve McQueen's four-wheel co-star in the 1968 feature film 'The Thomas Crown Affair'
In the mid-sixties American Ferrari dealer Luigi Chinetti approached Enzo Ferrari and asked him to build a small number of convertible versions of the 275 GTB. As a result, 10 North American Racing Team (NART) Spyders were built between 1967 and 1968.
The cars are powered by a 3.3-liter V-12 engine developing 300 horsepower.
