1 of 200 made
Ferrari Classiche certification
Launched at the 1964 Paris Motor Show together with it's Coupe sibling the 275 GTB - both cars shared the same running gear together with the Colombo designed 3.3 litre V12 engine - albeit the GTS variant in a slightly milder and tractable state of tune with 20 hp less produced at 600 lower rpm. This hardly makes the car a slouch - it was tested in period at 145 mph...
Designed as a replacement for the 250 GT Series 2 Spyder - the 275 GTS was produced by Pininfarina in Turin - with a limited production run restricted to just 200 examples (of which 14 were right hand drive) - the majority of which were predictably sold in the United States. This makes this pretty convertible rarer than it's Berlinetta brethren and in truth to drive - the car arguably makes a more relaxed and sweeter tourer. This model was made between 1964 and 1966.
The 275 GTS shares the same transaxle arrangement as a GTB and even today represents a really practical and rewarding driving experience.
We are in the process of compiling the history for this car, but so far we have ascertained 07631 was brought over from the US in the late 80's and after being owned by Austrian and German collectors was brought to the UK to be restored by Terry Hoyle on 1992.
The car was used by it's German owner enthusiastically and was seen in 1996 at the Ferrari Racing Days event at the Nurburgring.
Now in the UK, the car is in great condition and presents a rare opportunity to own a rare Enzo-era Ferrari V12 convertible - finished in a desirable colour combination.
