Beschreibung

This very special Ferrari 275 GTB Berlinetta "Short Nose" was sold new to Comte Frédéric Chandon de Briailles on September 22nd 1965 by FRANCO BRITANNIC, the first exclusif Ferrari importer in France.
Special car made for a special customer of Ferrari; 07765 was made (by the Ferrari Factory) with all openings in aluminium and all mechanical components identical to the 275 GTB/C - with three carbs.

Comte Chandon sold the car to Claude Bouscary at the end of 1966. Bouscary decided to race the
car in 1967 in the France GT Championship, with the engine converted to 6 carburetors spec.
Together they won three races and Bouscary became the 1967 Champion of French GT
Championship.

After passing through several hands, we bought the car in November 1997.
In January 1998, the Ferrari Factory accepted the car for the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, because of the build sheet of the car, but also because of the period racing history of s/n 07765.
The FIA accepted the car as an official racing car and got FIA papers during 1998.
The car was successfully raced by Jean Guikas in the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge for all the season in 1998 (where the car got its official nickname: « the blue bullet »)
Quicker than the GTOs, SWB, 275 GTB/C and most of the Daytona Comp.

After the season, the car was sold to a gentlemen in Holland who also raced the car in the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge.

In 2003, GTC got the car consigned and sold it to a collector who commissioned Roelofs Engineering to prepare an additional engine (Ferrari Classiche Stamped block), with 6 carburetors, which now develops 335 bhp DIN.
The car got a very special exhaust system installed, as well as a dog-ring gearbox, racing suspensions and much improved non-assisted brakes.
He raced the car in two additional seasons of the Ferrari-Maserati Historic Challenge (2006 & 2008).

Today, the original engine is back to its 3 carburetors spec and has also been restored by Roelofs Engineering. The original gearbox, as well as the original brake system, some original parts of the interior (that were removed for lighten process / race standards) and toe board are coming along with the car.
The car is accompanied by extra doors and bonnets made from ultra light aluminium and the original ones.

It is ready to race again and eligible in all the most exciting historic events, such as the Tour Auto, Modena Cento Ore, Goodwood and Le Mans Classic.

One-off car. Similar to a GTB/C. Matching numbers. Race prepared to the highest level. Potential winner. Available for sale now.
And it can’t wait to be back on the track again.
