1967 Ferrari 275GTB4
1967 Ferrari 275GTB4 Rosso Chiaro with tan interior, Ferrari Classiche certification, good continuous history from new, restored by known specialists in 2007 and little mileage covered since.
Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October 1966, the 275 GTB/4 (or 4-cam) was a substantially updated car; built by Scaglietti, it featured new bodywork and was the first Ferrari to not be offered with wire wheels.
Power came from a substantially reworked Colombo V12, still with two valves per cylinder but now with a four cam engine and six carburettors as standard. In a departure from previous Ferrari designs, the valve angle was reduced three degrees to 54° for a more-compact head. The dual camshafts also allowed the valves to be aligned “correctly” (perpendicular to the camshaft) instead of offset as in the single overhead camshaft Ferraris. It was a dry sump design with a huge 16 litre capacity. The individual cylinder capacity remained unchanged at slightly under 275cc, which as before gave the model the first three digits of its name, and when multiplied by the number of cylinders equals 3285.72 cc total swept volume. The transaxle was also redesigned. A torque tube connected the engine and transmission, rather than allowing them to float free on the body as before. This improved handling, noise, and vibration. Porsche synchronisers were also fitted for improved shifting and reliability.
The 275 GTB/4 could hit 268 km/h (166.5 mph) with its 300 hp (220 kW). 280 4-cam versions were produced until 1968.
In 2004, Sports Car International magazine named the Ferrari 275 GTB/4 number seven on the list of all time Top Sports cars of the 1960s.
