275 GTB Torque Tube
OUR 275 GTB
Chassis 08439 was born as a Long-nose 275 GTB Torque Tube in 1966. It was finished new in the color combination of Rosso Chiaro 20-R-190 over a Black Connolly interior and was delivered in April 1966 to Spanish Ferrari importer Tayre S.A. in Madrid. It would be registered in Barcelona on the plates “B-489039”. The 275 found its way to the UK, where a German gentleman acquired it in 1986 from Chris Drake Collectors Cars Ltd in England. As can be seen from the incredible documentation accompanying the Ferrari, the German owner transported the 275 from England to Germany on the hovercraft, a very special moment immortalized by incredible photographs of chassis 08439 just before boarding, still wearing its original red dress and registered on UK plates “AKX67E”. The 275 would remain with the German owner’s family until now.
37 years after acquiring the car, the owner’s family decided to treat the GTB to a full, nut and bolt restoration at Ferrari Classiche in Modena. The works were finished in December 2023 and the process for a Classiche certification has been approved as part of the restoration. . For sale with us at our Munich showroom, chassis 08439 presents in incredible factory-restored concours condition and is fully matching numbers engine, gearbox, differential, chassis, and body. The paperwork accompanying this stunning 60’s automobile is nothing short of incredible and shows how well cared after the car was during the last four decades.
