First ordered by Maranello Concessionaires as a demonstrator for their UK dealership in 1970, it was then sold to its first private owner. This 365 GTC is famous for having been featured on the Front Cover of Autocar's road test booklet in the very rare and special colour, "Grigio Mahmoud".
In 1980 DK Engineering first serviced the car and as such, we have now known the car 40 years. Purchased by DK's owner and founder, David Cottingham in 20xx, he instigated a bare metal restoration with the business, creating arguably the finest 365 GTC extant.
The degree of attention to detail and quality of this restoration was and is unheard of on a GTC - the retail value of the work is in excess of £400,000. No stone was left unturned during the restoration and we comprehensively documented the process.
The car was stripped to bare metal at which point we were able to find a sample of the cars rare original colour - this enabled us to repaint the car to exactly the correct shade.
The history file is with the car and documents the history with invoices and photographs all the way to new, we have a copy of the "Autocar" in which this car is on the front cover, we even have the original book pouch and with books. One of just 22 RHD examples, this 365 GTC benefits from the Ferrari Red Book Classiche Certification.
