1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 Longnose Torrque - Collector Car For Sale


Registration no: EU & Swiss registered Chassis no: 8625 Price: Refer Department For most enthusiasts the ideal Ferrari is the one that is most like its racing cars and yet practical enough to drive on public roads. With this in mind, from the earliest days the company produced a sporting berlinette that fulfilled such criteria, including the famous 250 SWB and GTO models. With the demise of these, the company was left with nothing in the way of a top-level customer car, the sort of performance flagship that could be used as easily for regular transport as it could for serious competition. Thus began an intensive programme to create a worthy successor to the legendary 250 series. The sensational new 275 GTB made its debut at the 1964 Paris Motor Show, and it is recognised as marking an important milestone in Ferrari history. It was the first Maranello product to be equipped with independent rear suspension and a five speed gearbox, the latter in unit with the rear axle to allow better weight distribution. With a bore and stroke of 77 x 58.8mm, giving a capacity of 3,285cc, the engine was still basically a Colombo design, and the factory had tested this unit, now producing between 280 and 300bhp, in the 275P and 250LM racing cars. Largely reminiscent of the 250 GTO, the bodywork, with a few developments for road use, was built in either steel or, occasionally, aluminium, by Scaglietti. The 275 GTB proved itself to be a formidable car indeed, and was rewarded by success both on the track and in terms of sales figures. This fully restored Ferrari is in truly superb condition having been restored with no corners cut to the highest standard by European specialists during the last 7 years. The car is 1 of only 100 built by the factory with original long - nose steel body, featuring the desirable torque tube. The car, which has never been raced during its life, is in its third and last ownership since 18 years; is accident free since new. Looking as good from the underneath as from any angle, this most desirable collector’s item is finished in green with black leather interior. It is on the button and ready for immediate use and/or show and certainly an unrepeatable opportunity for the true collector of this iconic model. It comes with Swiss and UK registration documents.
