Replacing the mythical Ferrari 250 with the same V12 engine known as Colombo, the Ferrari 275 GTB berlinetta represents a series of race cars and Grand Touring of the Italian manufacturer Ferrari. Produced with nearly a thousand units in the late 1960s, they were replaced by the Ferrari 365. Heir of the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, a more spacious and luxurious evolution of the Ferrari 250 Berlinetta SWB appeared in 1959, the Ferrari 275 GTB is presented at the 1964 auto show with two important technological advances for the brand: it has an independent rear suspension and it's the first Ferrari for road to be equipped with a transaxle, block ensuring the function of gearbox and differential. Featuring some of the characteristics of the Ferrari 250 GTO, including the silhouette defined around a long engine hood, a receding cockpit, lateral air vents or the tilted rear, the Ferrari 275 GTB coupe race car features a sublime line drawn by the coachbuilder Pininfarina.
Its production was entrusted to the Scaglietti Carrozzeria, the doors, the hood and the trunk lid being made of aluminum. Some rare models will also come out with a bodywork made entirely of aluminum. Reference engine 213 is an evolution of the Colombo V12 single overhead camshaft by raw, with a cylinder capacity extended to 3.3 liters for 280 horsepower, five-speed transaxle mounted independently and allowing the torque to be sent to the independent rear wheels . With the characteristics of the 250 models, chassis reference 563 will serve as the basis for the 275 GTB with a tapered rear part to accommodate transmission and suspension modifications.
The model Ferrari 275 GTB that we present for sale has a long nose steel body and the engine 280 hp V12 of 3.3 liters. It was the property of a great celebrity (the official historical papers of this belonging will be communicated to you).
