First Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Headed to Auction

The Ferrari 275 is justifiably one of the most celebrated Ferraris of all time, especially when equipped with the quad-cam V12. The very first 275 GTB fit with a quad-cam V12 is headed to auction in London, where it's expected to fetch up to $3.2 million.
This Rosso Corsa example, chassis #08769, was first shown at the Paris Motor Show in 1966. The 275 GTB was the first Ferrari road car with independent rear suspension, and a rear-mounted transaxle.
The 3.3-liter V12 in the 275 GTB/4 came equipped with six twin-choke Weber carbs, and produced around 300 horsepower. About 300 275 GTB/4s were built before production ended in 1968 and the car was succeeded by the 365 GTB/4 Daytona.
