Introduced in 1966, the 275 GTB/4 was the first four-camshaft engine to be used on a road-going Ferrari. Although the chassis was given a new type number of 596, it remained practically identical to the outgoing frame as featured on the two cam Series II Torque Tube model it was replacing. The Long Nose bodywork was almost identical to the late 2 cam models; the most obvious change was the bonnet bulge to allow suitable clearance for the carburettors air cleaner.

The body was fabricated predominantly from steel albeit with aluminium for the doors, bonnets and boot lids. An all-alloy body was also available but by special order only. The engines were substantially different to before, featuring dual overhead camshafts and competition-inspired dry sump lubrication. It retained the 3285cc but output had risen to 300bhp at 8000rpm. Having begun late in 1966, GTB/4 production was discontinued two years later after the completion of 330 examples. Undoubtedly the 4 cam is a much more useable Grand Tourer than its 2 cam contemporary benefiting from much greater torque throughout its rev range. This upgraded engine specification meant the 275 finally had a motor to match its credibly up to date design with disc brakes and independant suspension all round. In short a 4 cam is one of the finest driving cars for the road that first became available during the 1960's.

This example, chassis 10315, was completed in 1967 and was destined for delivery via Luigi Chinetti Motors, USA. This well-known car has remained in the USA for its entire life since delivery having covered a believed genuine 35,000 miles only from new. The car has had just 5 owners and is a very well-known example in the Ferrari circles of the USA, the previous owner kept the car for over 20 years until his death in 2009 when it was purchased by the 5th owner. Although the car was restored in the 1980's it remains in exceptionally well maintained and original condition. It is believed the car has never been damaged or affected by serious corrosion or rust. It drives as well as it looks! This 4 cam is presented in a stunning colour combination of dark red with Tan interior - it is accompanied by an exceptional history file and is vailable to view immediately.
