Ferrari 275 GTB No. 1 up for grabs

Built in 1964 and carrying assembly sequence No. 1, chassis 06003, this car is the first-ever Ferrari 275 GTB. The car served as Ferrari’s prototype and competed in the 1966 Monte Carlo Rally.

Those two facts in combination make for a car at the absolute top of the collector heap.
The Ferrari 275 GTB succeeded the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. Designed by Pininfarina, with coachwork by Scaglietti, this example was built with short-nose bodywork. Production models would use long-nose bodywork.
Ordinary 275s change hands these days from about $1m to $4m.

That won't likely come close to landing this baby. Estimate is $6m to $8m.

The car crosses the block at Gooding & Co. Scottsdale, Jan. 18-19.
