1965 Ferrari 275 GTB by Scaglietti at RM Sotheby's - $ 2.2m

The Ferrari 275 is a series of front-engined V12-powered grand touring automobiles with two-seater coupé and spider bodies produced by Ferrari between 1964 and 1968. The first 275 series cars were powered by a 3.3L (3286 cc) dual overhead camshaft Colombo 60° V12 engine producing 260–320 hp.
The chassis were now-typical welded steel tubular frame, fully independent suspension with unequal-length A-arms front and rear, disc brakes, and tubular shock absorbers. A five-speed transmission was mounted in unit with the rear axle. The clutch and bell housing were at the engine. With the rear-mounted gearbox came independent rear suspension, making the 275 GTB the first street Ferrari to be so equipped.
The 275 GTB was intended for either touring or racing. About 250 Series I and 200 Series II 275 GTBs were built.
The 275 GTB marked a progression in Ferrari design from thinly disguised racers to comfortable transportation. Because of the chassis changes the 275s were not only faster, but more comfortable.
This 275 GTB, chassis 06899, was completely restored in January 2018 to it's as new state, the way it left Ferrari’s Maranello factory in 1965. The car immediately earned a Platinum Award at the XXVII Palm Beach Cavallino Classic.

The car made $2.2m
