Launched alongside the Ferrari 275 GTB at the Paris Motor Show in October 1964 was the much anticipated successor to the 250 GT Cabriolet Pininfarina Series II, the 275 GTS. The new Spyder had stylish good looks, with bodywork designed by Pininfarina, and its 3 litre V12 produced 260BHP which was good for a top speed of 147 Mph and 0 to 60 acceleration in 6.6 seconds.
This delightful GTS is one of only 200 examples and was constructed in March 1965. It was originally delivered to Luigi Chinetti Motors in New York who in turn sold it to its first owner a Mr Mac Ham.
By 1977 it had found its way to Florida by which time it needed new paint and some interior detailing and in 1985 it resurfaced in Arizona having had a meticulous ground-up restoration. It remained in Arizona until 2013 when it was acquired by a prominent restoration company in the UK who in turn sold it back to California where it formed part of Gordon McCall's Motorworks Party display and featured on the stand of Beverly Hills Motoring during the 11th Annual Quail Lodge gathering. Now owned by F1 World Champion this car is available in our Newport Beach showroom ready for the next "pilota" to experience this 12 cylinder Italian masterpiece.
