23 Feature Ferrari 275 GTB
A tribute to a legendary berlinetta with complete production listing

In 1972, Hilary Raab and I embarked upon a project to identify every Ferrari by chassis number.
Through our dealings with the factory, we had come to realise that even Ferrari did not know how many of each model they had built.
Since my wife, Sue, and I had recently acquired a Ferrari 275 GTB, it only made sense to focus extra research on these cars. As the years went by, we both moved on other projects and raw data was not fully analysed. Now with Cavallino's honouring of the Ferrari 275 GTBs, this is the time to sort out the cars.

There were seminal cars in Ferrari's history, when new ground was broken, not only technologically but also aesthetically. This special Ferrari 250 GT incorporates a whole host of new design ideas and concepts that will be carried forward by Ferrari and Pinin Farina into a slew of later models, and successfully.
In s/n 0425 GT, they were all incorporated in this one car, and instead of being a hodgepodge of disparate ideas, here they combined into a wonderful harmonious whole.
