Known History

Ferrari 275 GTB Alloy 6 Carb Long Nose

 

Perhaps the last truly dual-purpose road and race Ferrari, the 275 GTB is acknowledged to be a high-water mark in Ferrari’s design back catalogue.

 

Introduced at the 1964 Paris Auto Show, the most important new features of the 275 GTB were the rear-mounted gearbox and independent rear suspension. To improve road-holding, a 280 bhp V12 engine with dry sump lubrication was used; as the overall height of the engine was reduced, it could be fitted deeper in the chassis to lower the centre of gravity.

 

Approximately 450 cars were built between 1964 and 1966, of which 215 were the desirable long nose specification, of which only 13 were rhd. This car is the ultimate iteration of the model - clothed in the optional lightweight aluminium body and further refined with the fitment of 6 carburettors by the factory - which resulted in a 20 bhp power boost to 300 bhp over the more common 3 carburettor model. It is believed there were only 6 RHD Alloy bodied 6 carburettor cars made, of which this car is one.

 

This car was supplied new by Maranello Sales for factory collection to P. Mitchell - an 18 year Australian who was believed to be living in Rome at the time. The car spent 43 years being cherished by a number of Ferrari enthusiasts before imported into the UK and sold to Carlos Monteverde - who exhibited the car at Pebble Beach in 2014. The car was used as the pace car at the 2015 Goodwood revival and sold to the current owner - a serious Ferrari collector.

 

We have dealt with over 100 275 GTBs, including just about every model derivative and can confirm that the light weight alloy long nose body, coupled with the desirable 6 carburettor engine, makes this rare model fantastic to drive and amongst the most exotic 275 GTB specification available.

 

The car has full Ferrari Classiche certification and is in stunning condition ready for its next custodian.
