Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October 1966, the 275 GTB/4 (or 4-cam) used the same basic platform as the early 275 GTB with mostly mechanical improvements. The Scaglietti-built bodywork was largely the same as the series II “long-nose” 275 GTB, with the most visible difference being an added hood bulge with creased edges. Campagnolo magnesium alloy wheels sized 14×7 were standard equipment, while traditional Borrani wire wheels were a special-order option.

The engine was the Tipo 226 3285.72 cc Colombo V12, derived from the earlier Tipo 213 275 engine with two valves per cylinder, but now upgraded with four overhead camshafts and six Weber 40 DCN carburetors as standard. This engine produced a claimed 300 hp. In a departure from previous Ferrari designs, the valve angle was reduced three degrees to 54° for a more-compact head. The dual camshafts also allowed the valves to be aligned perpendicular to the camshaft instead of offset as in SOHC engines. The engine used a dry-sump lubrication system with a large 16 litre capacity.

Improvements from the series II 275 GTB were carried over to the 275 GTB/4, including the torque tube connecting the engine and transmission. In addition to the upgraded engine, the 275 GTB/4 had several minor improvements to the cooling system, exhaust and suspension.

The Ferrari 275 GTB 4 Cam had a claimed top speed of 268 km/h (166.5 mph).

A total of 330 were produced from 1966 to 1968.

Chassis 09669

1967 – Delivered new to Di Gianni in Italy, this car was publicly seen with it’s next Italian owner Sergio Cassano in 1983 at the Ferrari Days event in Modena.

2008 – Acquired by Talacrest following a nut and bolt restoration by Bob Houghton. Chris Evans subsequently bought the car who then commissioned new paint and trim, finishing the car in white with blue trim as part of his iconic “White Collection.”

Talacrest was instrumental in putting this collection together for Chris and this car was displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2009 and 2010.

#09669 was part of the Magnificent 7 charity runs, where Chris auctioned off drives in the cars to raise over £1m for BBC Children in Need.

Always beautifully maintained without care for expense, this Ferrari 275 GTB 4 Cam, drives beautifully and is ready to tour or event with it’s next custodian.

There are numerous images on the web of the car at various events during Chris’ tenure and the video below discussing the White Collection features 09969.

Talacrest
Talacrest’s Chairman John Collins has had a life-long passion for Ferrari and used to run a Ferrari 246 Dino as his everyday road car as a photo journalist 38 years ago. Today his enthusiasm for Ferrari remains undiminished after selling approximately 1700 + classic Ferrari – and the thrill of conducting the next deal and helping collectors obtain their dream classic Ferrari is the driving force behind the company. The business was established in 1987 and has sold just about every classic Ferrari made – it would be easier to draw up a list of Ferrari NOT sold by Talacrest than those that they have sold. "You should bear in mind that with the volume of Ferrari that we have sold – sometimes we have sold an individual car many times over. A classic example being a Ferrari 275 GTB/2 6 carburettor alloy car that we have sold no less than 6 times!" Customers come back to Talacrest time and again – because buying or selling from the best is a straightforward process – and equally whatever cycle the market is in – the very best cars that we sell are always a good long term investment prospect, as well as an exciting ownership proposition.
