First unveiled at the 1964 Paris Auto Show, the Ferrari 275 GTB represented a more refined, higher-performance take on GT cars of the era, borrowing race-derived elements from the Prancing Horse’s 250 LM. Ferrari’s first road-going model to sport rear independent suspension, the 275 GTB was powered by a 280hp 3.3L V-12, that would be the final iteration of the Colombo-designed short-block twelve banger.

Today, the 275 GTB remains a wildly-sought after vehicle, occupying several spaces on the list of the most expensive vehicles ever sold at auction, though another 1967 specimen that’s recently gone up for sale may be one of the most noteworthy examples to hit the market in quite a few years. One of only 330 examples built, this 275 GTB/4 by Scaglietti was originally sold in Switzerland, before trading hands numerous times until it wound up in the possession of automotive legend and retired race car driver, Skip Barber for approximately a decade starting in 1999. In 2014 it was also treated to just shy of a $50,000 restoration, prior to it being certified by world-renowned Ferrari Classiche Department in 2017. This 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 by Scaglietti is currently for sale through RM Sotheby’s online-only SHIFT sale where it has a fixed price of $2,650,000.
