1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Alloy by Scaglietti

12:09:00 PM


RM Sotheby's has one of the rarest 275 GTBs ever made currently listed on the private sale section of their site. Chassis no. 08497 is a numbers matching, late-production long-nose featuring aluminum coachwork which was usually reserved for competition cars. It is one of only four alloy-bodied, torque-tube, long-nose 275 GTBs to retain the triple carburetor setup, making it far rarer than its six-carburetor, alloy-bodied variants. 



The car was originally sold in Italy in 1966 and over the years made its way to the USA, Switzerland, and Sweden where it was restored in 2006 and granted Ferrari Classiche certification, confirming that it is fully matching numbers throughout, including the original engine and gearbox. 



Since its restoration, the car was shown at the 2010 Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza and was driven in the Coppa Milano-Sanremo Rally. In 2014 the car returned back to the USA with a new owner who is currently offering it for sale through RM Sotheby's. For more and the full listing CLICK HERE.
