This Bleu Chiaro 275 GTB is rare, but the color is only part of what makes this V12 icon so cool and unique.
Most unlike almost all other Ferrari 250’s and 275’s these days, this one is fantastically original. The patina of 33 years spent garaged is actually delightful to see up close. For unlike most Ferrari’s of this era restored to almost-unreal levels of finish, this car shows its glory years proudly.
Yes, this means that there is a bit of corrosion visible under the car near the front subframe, and it means that the oil-based paint is cracking in a few places on its fenders.
But even for a buyer who plans to drop $200,000 into a full restoration, there is real value in seeing a car in its original state. It is honest and refreshing, and actually a great starting point for a collector piece or a flawless custom upgrade.
For this metallic blue beauty, we hope that the original color scheme will be maintained. It is quite a stunning color on this, one of the best-looking GT supercars of all time.
$3.3-million makes this a well-bought example. A light refresh could easily add $500,000 to this barn-find’s net worth — but the next buyer won’t benefit from seeing the truth of the car as it aged so gracefully.
