1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C by Scaglietti

The 275 GTB debuted at the 1964 Paris Motor Show and was an instant hit. The first 275 series cars were powered by a 3.3 L (3286 cc) dual overhead camshaft Colombo 60° V12 engine producing 260–320 hp. An updated 275 GTB/4 was introduced in 1966, with a revised four overhead camshaft engine producing 300 hp.
The standard 275 GTB body was fabricated in steel with aluminum alloy doors, hood and trunk lid. At least 72 cars were built with a lightweight all-aluminum body, which was an extra-cost option from the factory.
This example appeared at RM Sotheby's with an estimate of $1.8m to $2.2m. It failed to change hands.
