Introduced at the 1965 Paris Salon, the 275 GTB continued Ferrari’s tradition of offering a thoroughbred dual-purpose sports car to its most demanding customers. Performance was electrifying, thanks to a new 3.3-liter V-12, five-speed transaxle, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. The car’s sleek and seductive coachwork, designed by Pininfarina and crafted by Scaglietti, recalled earlier berlinettas such as the 250 Tour de France and GTO.
Numbered 08863, this late-production example features the desirable long nose bodywork and torque-tube driveshaft. This 275 GTB was delivered new through Western US distributor Modern Classic Motors to a Ferrari enthusiast based in Portland, Oregon. It remained in his family’s ownership for over five decades. Never before restored, displayed, or offered for public sale and showing just over 40,000 original miles, this 275 GTB remains in well-preserved condition.
Considered one of the most iconic and collectible sports cars of all time, the 275 GTB combines the very best Ferrari attributes in one beautiful, well-rounded package. This particular car embodies a refined, late-production example, with the improved long-nose bodywork and torque-tube driveshaft. In addition to its unusual color scheme of Rosso Chiaro with Red leather upholstery and cloth inserts, the car is one of the most unique and distinctive 275 GTBs in existence. Fresh to the market, eligible for countless events, and in superb unrestored condition, 08863 presents a truly rare opportunity to acquire a Ferrari that has had just one private owner from new.
