Furlonger are delighted to bring this remarkable concours winning right-hand drive Ferrari 275 GTB/6C to the market, with a comprehensive history file dating back to 1965 when the car was initially ordered. Chassis no. 07715 is 1 of just 11 U.K. supplied short-nose examples with factory 6 carburettor engine specification, and is accompanied by Classiche Certification.

Ordered new via Maranello Concessionaires LTD of London in 1965, this 275 GT Berlinetta was first sold to a Mr G. D. Claridge of Herts. As per the original order form and Sefac factory invoice. Mr Claridge, a gentleman driver and enthusiast was well acquainted with Col. R. J. Hoare (then chairman of Maranello Concessionaries), having conducted business before the purchase of the 275 GTB. Numerous letters exchanged between Col. R. J. Hoare and Mr Claridge are present in the car’s history file, one of which confirms the cancellation of Mr Claridge’s original order, a 275 GTS, swapping it for a 275 GTB with ‘’the full 6 carburettor layout and wire wheels as you requested’’.

Naturally, this 275 GTB 6/C would change hands over the coming years, being sold to like minded enthusiasts around the UK. By 1973, the car was sold to a Mr. R. B. Kendall who resided in Oxon and registered the 275 with the license plate ‘’NAR 76C’’, the same registration it retains today. In 1974 the 275 was stripped to bare shell and repainted Rosso, while simultaneously being mechanically overhauled. Some 10 years later, the 275 GTB was shown at the 18th Annual Ferrari Owners Club England meeting and Concours d’Elegance at Easington Hall, where it was placed 1st in class. In late 1984 the car was then sold a Mr Andreas Mohringer who resided in Germany and had previously owned another 275 GTB short-nose. After owning the 275 for 5 years, Mr Mohringer sold the car to a UK resident and was subsequently sold in November 1992 via Brooks Auction, London to a Mr R. Wethasinge, a helicopter dealer in Nigeria who resided in Petersfield. It is believed that Mr Wethasinge commissioned Maranello Concessionaires to conduct a repaint of the car, again in Rosso, after it was seen in their workshop in 1993. Changing hands further by 2009, the 275 was displayed at 42nd Essen Motorshow in Germany.

In 2014, chassis #07715 was sold to renowned UK based Ferrari collector and enthusiast Chris Evans, who owned the 275 for a brief period before it was subsequently sold again to another gentleman who resided in Rye, East Sussex. The owner, a fastidious collector of fine motor cars, had the car transported to a world renowned Ferrari specialist where it was visually and mechanically inspected, road tested and reported to be in good running order. Keith Blumell, a member of the IAC/PFA (International Advisory Council for the Preservation of the Ferrari Automobile) conducted an extended inspection of his own, concluding that the 275 is a good example and retains fully matching numbers. Further, it had been agreed by all involved parties that the car requires cosmetic attention, therefore a total restoration was to be undertaken. Over the course of 3 years chassis #07715 underwent a comprehensive no-expense-spared restoration, finished in the highly desirable shade of Grigio Scuro. In 2018 the car was awarded Classiche Certification and was sold via well known Ferrari dealer Tom Hartley Jnr.

Now offered for sale, this Ferrari 275 GTB/6C short-nose is arguably one of the finest 275s in existence. Chassis #07715 is accompanied by a scrupulously assorted history that meticulously documents its ownership and comprehensive maintenance record, with dozens of invoices, receipts, letters of correspondence and even the original bill of sale. A totally matching numbers example, complete with Classiche Certificate and red book, restored to the very highest of standards, proven by its international concours win at Salon Prive 2018, and its invitation to the Royal Concours. This 275 GTB/6C poses an unparalleled opportunity to own one of Ferrari’s most celebrated and collectible historic motor cars.
