A rare alloy-body 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/2 “long-nose” berlinetta, one of the greatest road and race track thoroughbreds of its era, will be offered during Bonhams’ Zoute, Belgium, sale on October 11.
The V12-powered coupe with styling by Pininfarina leads off a group of exceptional Ferraris that have been consigned to the auction, according to a Bonhams news release.
“One of only 60 ‘long-nosed’ examples produced with an alloy body, this car, chassis No. 08061, finished in Rosso Chiaro with blue interior, was previously owned for some 10 years by Gregory Noblet, son of Ferrari works driver and gentleman racer Pierre Noblet who, together with Jean Guichet, was on the podium at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1962 (3rd) and 1963 (2nd) in a 250 GTO.”
The GTB had a €250,000 ($273,000) restoration completed in 2014, Bonhams says.
“The 275 GTB is Ferrari Classiche certified and comes with its ‘Ferrari Red Book’ and FIA historic passport, as well as two boxes of spares and original parts,” the release notes.
The estimated value of the GTB will be provided “upon request,” Bonhams says. Current value guides peg its worth at more than $3 million.
Other special Ferraris on the Zoute docket include:
• 1960 250 GT Pininfarina Series II Cabriolet, valued at $1.2 million to $1.6 million.
• 2004 Enzo, valued at $1.3 million to $1.6 million.
• 1960 250 GT Series II Coupé, valued at $550,000 to $750,000.
The October 11 auction takes place at the Place Albert in Knokke Le Zoute. For more information, visit the auction website.
