Ferrari 275 GTB/6C
Introduced in 1964, the 275 GTB was considered by many to be the finest production Ferrari ever built, combining the thoroughbred mechanical pedigree of its road racing forebears with sufficient creature comforts and a brand new fully independent rear suspension to produce a superlative grand touring automobile.
The engine was based on Ferrari’s race-proven Colombo overhead camshaft V-12, now displacing of 3,285.7 cc to produce 280 bhp with the standard triple Weber carburettor setup. Fitment of six Weber 40 DNC/3 carburettors was offered as an option, increasing output to about 300 bhp!
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2009 at Ferrari S.p.A., Fiorano Modenese, Modena and in August of 2010 at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California.
