Occasionally, Sotheby’s features an offering that truly stands out among its peers, like the exceptional Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Alloy, now presented on Sotheby’s Sealed platform. This vehicle is particularly notable and is likely to attract the interest of an enthusiast looking for extraordinary luxury vehicles. In a joint venture with Ferrari Beverly Hills, Sotheby’s Sealed offers this magnificent Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Alloy. It distinguishes itself as one of the mere 16 aluminium-bodied 275 GTB/4s ever built and is further highlighted by its rare, factory-installed external fuel filler cap.

Boasting a Ferrari Classiche certificate, this impressive collectors’ treasure maintains its authentic chassis, engine transmission, and body, all in outstanding condition. An October 1967 Car & Driver magazine road test lauded this model with high praise, stating, “We think it’s probably the neatest car an enthusiast could ever own.”

Understanding the exclusivity of chassis number 09413 requires a deeper knowledge of the 275 GTB lineage. Spanning from the debut of the 275 GTB in 1964 to the end of 275 GTB/4 production in 1968, these vehicles may look alike at first glance, but each has unique qualities that differentiate them from one another.

The 275 GTB/4 debuted in 1966, succeeding the 275 GTB. It encompassed continuous enhancements from its predecessor, such as the extended nose design and torque tube driveline. Additionally, it showcased the newly developed Tipo 226 3.3-liter engine with four camshafts and six Weber carburetors as a standard configuration. This model didn’t have separate versions as its precursor did; instead, it provided optional upgrades to boost its performance pedigree.

For about ten years, this car has been an esteemed part of a California-based collection and has been meticulously maintained. Within the spectrum of Ferrari’s 275 models, only a select few, like the N.A.R.T. and Speciale, outrank this example in terms of scarcity and distinction. Chassis 09413 epitomizes the zenith of what a road-going closed 275 GTB/4 could be, capturing the essence of the 275 GTB evolution prior to the birth of the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. It is, unequivocally, a significant milestone in Ferrari’s illustrious chronicle.
