Classic cars always fetch a high price whenever they hit the auction block. But sometimes these immaculate models belong to individuals who are a bit more notable. Not only was this gorgeous 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS owned and operated by the former president and COO of Microsoft, Jon A. Shirley, but it ended up in the care of illustrious television personality David Letterman before being listed for auction at this year’s upcoming Indy 2020 event.

The 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS that you see here is undeniably pristine, and it’s secured more than a few awards to prove it. After being named the 2018 FCA Platinum winner and FCA’s Best 1974, it would go on the Cavallino Platinum award in 2019 — a testament to its beauty and superb handling. Naturally, the vehicle arrives at the auction block with a fully-realized Ferrari Classiche Certification, as well as its original Pininfarina hardtop, 3.3L V12 engine, and a five-speed manual transmission. After being restored by Bobileff Motorcar Company some years ago, the vehicle has remained, for lack of a better term, immaculate, referencing various flaw-free components like its Borrani wire wheels, Nero exterior finish, and a bright red interior to evoke the nostalgia of the car’s iconic lineage. No monetary figures have been revealed, but you’ll be able to see the car roll across the auction block in mid-July.
