After the disruption of the Series II Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet production in 1962, the next Convertible Ferrari was launched in 1964, known as the 275 GTS S for Spyder. The design of the Ferrari 275 GTS was quite different from the Coupe model, and offered a new styling approach, with very elegant lines and distinctive bodywork. The Ferrari 275 were the first Ferraris on the road to be equipped with all-round independent suspension, unlike the rear live axle used on the 250 GT models. A rear-mounted five-speed transaxle was also introduced with the Ferrari 275. A 3.3-Liter SOHC V12 engine powered the stylish Spyder, generating a decent 260hp. Although this meant 20hp down compared to the Coupe, the better low-end torque made the GTS quite enjoyable to drive.
Only 200 examples of the Ferrari 275 GTS were made during its 2-year production run. This amount wasnt low by Ferrari production standards but still makes the 275 GTS a very desirable classic. The Ferrari 275 GTS model was soon followed by the 330 GTC, the 330 GTS and the 330 GT 2+2 models. Ferrari also made a small production special version called the 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder. The main difference with the standard Ferrari 275 GTS is that the 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder came with the coachwork of the 275 GTB/4 Coupe and the four-cam motor. Being so rare, the NART Spyders are very desirable classics, highly prized at auction and Concours events.
This Enzo-era Ferrari is the very special classic that many Ferrari enthusiasts dream of owning. The 3-Weber carburetors and heart-wrenching V12 noise makes it personable and although its not modern-car speed, you get plenty enough without even needing the full 7,000 rpm. A precise and smooth 5-speed shifter is connected to the rear-mounted transaxle and the car offers fantastic steering. Most will tell you the Ferrari 275 GTS is definitely worth every penny!
