Produced between 1964 and 1968, the Ferrari 275 grand touring series defined the Italian automobile landscape of the latter part of the sixties. The series was the first road-going models of the Ferrari lineup that featured a transaxle, a revised four overhead camshaft engine, and independent rear suspension. This iconic series featured two different body styles, a two door coupe and a two door spider. The 275 coupe and spider bodies were defined by Pininfarina S.p.A. while the 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder was designed by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, although only ten of the latter ones were ever made.
A 1967 road test performed by Road & Track Magazine described the experience of driving the Ferrari 275 NART Spyder as “the most satisfying sports car in the world.” Additionally, on their list of the greatest Ferraris of all time, Motor Trend Classic named the 275 GTB coupe and GTS spider number three on their list, while Sports Car International named the 275 GTB/4 number seven on their list of the top sports car of the sixties.
A success in both everyday use and on the racing track, the Ferrari 275 series was a landmark run for the iconic car manufacturer. The line left a notable legacy behind, with a signature look that would define the landscape of the Italian car market at the time.
