Ferrari 275 GTB Berlinetta from 1965









Anatomy of a Classic
Ferrari 275 GTB/6C Berlinetta
Designed by Pininfarina in 1965

Another priceless classic Ferrari to drool over...the 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C Berlinetta. Motor Trend Classic named the 275 GTB/GTS as number three in their list of the ten "Greatest Ferraris of all time". The shape of the Ferrari 275 GTB was designed by Pininfarina and the coachwork was done by Scaglietti. If there is one Ferrari to own within the span of the marque's first quarter-century it is the 275 GTB. Blistering performance, quick, responsive handling, ideal weight distribution and the aggressive Pininfarina/Scaglietti coachwork with elements of the legendary 250 GTO make it a milestone.


This rare configuration with 6-carb induction, short nose body, suspended pedals, interim driveshaft and long nose interior – identifies it as an important example of the 275 GTB's evolution and Ferrari's quest for ever-better performance, handling and driving qualities. It is the only example known that incorporates these disparate features, combining the best of the early short nose coachwork, enhanced interior accommodations and the 6-Weber engine. It rests on outside-laced Borrani wire wheels. This meticulously 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C Berlinetta is in pristine condition, true to its original build both inside and out.


Offered at auction through Bonhams on June 3rd.
As with any great collector car, the more perfect and more rare the specimen, the more it will fetch at auction. Chances are that it will fetch a 7 digit number, perhaps this is not 'that' expensive when you consider people pay $120 million for a picture of someone screaming.
