200 Odd Ones Out – Ferrari 275 GTS

Of the Ferrari 275 family including the GTB, GTB/C, GTB/4, GTB/4 NART, the GTS is the odd one out because it has a completely different sharper Pininfarina styled body to it’s siblings.

Underneath the bonnet / hood is the same 3,286 cc / 200 cui V-12 engine block as it’s sibling 275’s with 2 cams and 3 carbs to produce 260 hp.

The chassis, independent front and rear suspension and hydraulically actuated front and rear disc brakes are also all of the same spec as it’s more rounded siblings.

Introduced in 1964 to replace the 250 GT Series 2 Cabriolet a production run of 200 275 GTS models was built up until 1966, when it was replaced by the short run of 10 rounded style 275 GTB/4 NART Spyders and more permanently by the 4 litre / 244 cui 330 GTS.

A 275 GTS similar to the 1966 model seen here sold at RM Auctions last year for just short of 1.5 million dollars.

My thanks to Geoffrey Horton for sharing his photograph’s of today’s featured Ferrari 275 GTS which were taken at the Desert Classic Concours d’Elegance a couple of years ago.
