Ferrari 275 GTS
1965 Ferrari 275 GTS finished in original combination of Azzuro Metallic over Beige upholstery. Complete with Ferrari Classiche documentation.
The Ferrari 275 GTS was revealed at the 1964 Paris Auto Show, alongside its hard top name-sake, the 275 GTB. Although in terms of appearance the two cars are clearly distinguishable, mechanically they both carry a similar 3.3-litre Colombo V12 as well as similar chassis and suspension set-ups.
The 275 GTS was the replacement for the outgoing 250 GT Series II Cabriolet and mainly intended for the US market, where the success of high-performance Grand Touring cabriolets had long been established. Further, the 275 GTS is in fact a much rarer vehicle than its Berlinetta sibling, with only 200 examples being made in a short production period.
Completed in 1965, this example left the factory in the striking combination of Azzuro Metallic with Beige leather interior, the same colours that it wears today. this car was first delivered to Glick, USA before making it's way to California in 1976. This example also made an appearance at Salon Privé in 1996 in the "Cars from the Swinging 60's" category.
It was first registered in the UK the same year, and has been meticulously maintained and cared for since then. This car is without question one of the finest kept examples one could hope to encounter, and more than assures a return on investment as the trend of growth in value on 275GTS continues to climb; threatening to rival even the legendary Daytona Spider.
The Ferrari 275 GTS is one of the most beautiful cars to leave Maranello and remains not only a fantastic car to own and drive, but also a strong investment opportunity. With only 200 produced, beautiful examples such as this are extremely rare on the market, especially in such fantastic all-round condition and complete with such provenance.
