$4M Barn Find: Ferrari 275 GTB and 427 Cobra

A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB with 13,000 original miles has been discovered. A Colombo-designed V-12 is topped with three Weber twin-throats under a black, wrinkled air filter. The interior looks near new, the seats a rich navy vinyl and wooden steering wheel and shifter. The body of the 275 GTB is alloy which makes this car even rarer because only a handful were built.
60 'Alloy' 275 GTB Berlinettas were built. 280 hp, 3,286 cc V-12 engine with triple Weber dual-choke carburettors, five-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension with upper and lower wishbones, coil springs, and tubular shocks, and four-wheel disc brakes. That configuration is among the most coveted with a typical auction market price above $3 million.
