Revealed in 1966 at the Paris Motor Show the Ferrari 275 GTB4 is the last and the most desirable in the 275 series. The 275 GTB4 is also the first ’production’ Ferrari to be fitted with the four overhead camshaft version of the V12, and was derived directly from the P2 prototype. During 1966 and 1968 Ferrari produced around 330 units.

The difference between a standard 275 GTB and the GTB4 version was its "long nose" and also for the GTB4 version the bonnet had a slim shallow central bulge running from front to rear. Like all the other Ferrari, the 275 GTB4 was designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti, normally in steel with aluminum doors, bonnet, and boot lid, although a few examples received full aluminum bodies.

The bodies were mounted on a 2400mm wheelbase chassis that had factory reference numbers 596, and all were numbered in the odd chassis number road car sequence. The chassis was virtually identical to that of the two camshaft car, the revised number being due to minor differences in the drive train layout.

Like its predecessor, the four camshaft model was available in right or left hand drive form. The standard wheels were alloy with a ten hole design, with the option of Borrani wire wheels throughout the production period, retained by a triple ear spinner. European market examples had circular rear light units with the upper section in orange for the turn signal, and featured a central circular reflector. US market cars had a full red rear lens with a central horizontal rectangular reflector.

The 275 GTB4 was powered by a 3.3-liter V-12 derived from Ferrari’s 1965 prototype racers. It had a dry-sump lubrication system and revised cylinder heads with four camshafts that gave the car its “4” suffix. The engine’s powered was increased with 40 hp, up to 300 hp. Top speed went up to 150 mph (although in 1965 a test car did the 0-60 mph in 6 seconds flat, and topped out at 156 mph).

In 2006 at the RM Auction in Monterey a Ferrari 275 GTb4 was auctioned for $990,000.

Yeah, The modern design of the car was based in this legend. I could honestly say that their design is relatively closely to their past production.

Wow! I love it! The color makes the car look so fresh for a vintage car. I’m glad to see this kind of craftsmanship it makes me realize the history of the Porsche.

even if this one is old I can see the meticulous craftsmanship of Ferrari on their production which is a good thing though. These oldies is just a prove on how creative and credible automaker they are.

Mouth watering and jaw dropping style. Not all Ferrari vintage cars is cool looking, but this one is different from the rest very well polished.

The 1966-1968 Ferrari 275 GTB4 is one of a kind dude. Very elegant and fascinating. It can compete to those Lamborghini vintage model cars.

For a classic car that’s fully modified to have a bid price of $990,000, I think it’s worth it for a car enthusiast because the maturity of this car may increase and increase. Well as I’ve read the details about this car, really amaze that the power of this car is in between the performance of 2009 car release.
