For many, the 1960s were the finest years of automaking. Companies battled for supremacy on the European circuit, coachbuilders came into what was, subjectively, their most prominent period, and the industry’s prolific manufacturers continued to articulate their unprecedented vision. One of the most classic platforms from the era, the 275 GTB, was an artful example of Ferrari’s iconic design principle — and now, a rare example has fallen into the hands of Girardo & Co.

If it were merely a traditional platform, the 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB 6C that you see here would have enamored classic vehicle aficionados and collectors alike; however, there’s something to be said for the authenticity, and history of this unique example. As one of only 60 275 GTB’s to don the company’s race-specific factory package, the 3.3-liter Colombo V12’s six-carburetor layout is said to have been reserved only for Enzo Ferrari’s favored clients. Throughout its life, the car would be outfitted with a handful of specialized components, including GTO style air vents, 250 LM style faired-in driving lights, and a triangular power bulge in the bonnet, courtesy of Scaglietti’s former body and paintwork expert, Egidio Brandoli. The matching-numbers example is available now via Girardo & Co’s website for an unspecified sum, so if you’re looking to acquire it for yourself, inquire there.
