This Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is no longer available. Please contact us for any further information you may require.
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 also 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 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 just 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 independent suspension all round. In short a 4 cam is one of the finest driving cars ever produced by Ferrari, to many the epitome of La Dolce Vita, "the Ultimate Grand Tourer", the "4cam" is now one of the most widely appreciated and in demand collector cars.
This Left Hand Drive Ferrari 275 GTB/4 was completed in 1966 and finished in the superb colour of Celeste. It was delivered new to its first owner in Switzerland and was then owned by Peter Sellers, who was at the time a resident of Geneva. The car is now finished in Rosso with a Nero Leather interior and is available for viewing at our showroom based just outside of London.
