With a target of no less than 16 million dollars at the auction, we can imagine this gorgeous 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C is going to make both buyer and seller extremely happy.
Set to cross the auction block on the weekend of August 18th and go down under the hammer for the highest bidder, this very rare 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Competition is not only one of just 12 examples ever produced, but also one of eight in a left-hand drive configuration. And fortunate onlookers will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse next month in Monterey, set to take part in the grand collection of 13 classic Ferraris worth close to $20 million. This one is of course the crown jewel, and it’s on point at Pebble Beach for the title of highest purchase. Gooding and Co. estimations put it in between $12 to $16 million – with the original masterpiece even sporting the Borrani aluminum wire wheels it came equipped from the factory.
Power is granted by a 3.3-liter V12 with high-lift camshafts, 250 LM-type valves, unique custom pistons, a redesigned crankfshaft, and Weber 40 DFI/3 carburetors – the car was manufactured back in July of 1966, wearing an Argento Metallizzato finish, complete with black leather interior. Wayne Obry’s Motion Products Inc. in Neenah, Wisconsin, gave the car a thorough restoration back in 2007, complete with original racing livery.
