It shocks the Paris Autosalon floors in 1964: two new models make their appearance. On the one hand, the closed GTB, a fantastically designed coupe. On the other hand, the GTS, its open brother. Identical in terms of chassis, with a beautifully welded tubular frame. Fully independent suspension with Dunlop disc brakes all around and Koni shock absorbers. Under the elongated hood of both cars is the 3.3 liter ‘Colombo’ V12, with the Spider delivering 260 hp and the closed GTB even 280.

Both models also featured a transaxle arrangement, with the five-speed gearbox placed between the rear wheels and thus independent rear suspension. The 275 GTB was the first Ferrari to be built using this method.
The design of the GTB was completely new, unlike that of the GTS, which was loosely based on that of the 330 GT. The GTB was designed by Pininfarina but built by Scaglietti.

The purpose of the GTB? According to Ferrari, you could tour as well as race with the GTB. There was a choice of three carburetors (such as this 275, with which the GTB was homologated by the FIA for competition) or six. Even with the bodywork there was a choice: steel or aluminum. Campagnolo alloy wheels were standard, Borrani wire wheels an option.
The second series was shown in Paris in 1965, with a somewhat longer nose and smaller air intake. At ‘the’ Brussels Motor Show, shortly afterwards, other alloy wheels were also mounted and the drive shaft was encased in a torsion tube. About 250 Series I and about 200 Series II 275 GTBs were built.

The beautiful 275 GTB you see here was delivered in exactly this color scheme to the first owner, Luigi Lucchini in Brescia, Italy. He opted for Grigio Argento paint with the interior in Pelle Rossa. A great combination that looks both very stylish and sporty.
The car has, according to the Marcel Massini Report, which is of course present, several owners who all reside in the Brescia and Milan area.
In 1970 the car leaves for America, where it remains for most of its life. The car is very well maintained and documented, so there are no gaps in the history. Odometer readings were also regularly recorded so that we can verify that this is a car that has really driven little. In 1975 the car was sold to an owner who owned and cherished it for some twenty years, something that the subsequent owner has done since taking possession of it in 2004.

That owner decided to have the engine, which has only 49,000 kilometers of experience at the time, restored and overhauled by an expert. The inspection that follows during disassembly shows that the engine has never been disassembled before at that time. The rest of the car also appears to be completely overworked and original, something that is rarely the case with such cars.
After the restoration in 2005, the car immediately wins the first meeting of the Ferrari Club of America in Savannah, Georgia. More accolades followed when the car was displayed at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in March 2006.

At the beginning of 2012, the GTB received its full Ferrari Classiche certification and since then the car has received all the care and maintenance it deserves. This is therefore an original, matching numbers and fully restored example with unbroken history, all books and tools and a Ferrari Classiche certification.
