1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Berlinetta could make $2.4m

A 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB Berlinetta will headline Bonhams' Grand Marques sale in Paris on February 4 with a valuation of $1.7m-2.4m.

The 275 was the next generation of Ferrari's hugely successful (and considerably more valuable) 250 series.

Ferrari 275 GTB
The Ferrari 275 GTB is one of 800 models produced between 1964 and 1968

Coachbuilder Pinin Farina was behind the model's classic design. The GTB is its grand touring variant (although it has more of a racing profile) and was released in far fewer numbers.

Around 800 were built between 1964 and 1968. The present lot is one of the series two GTBs released after 1965, which feature longer noses.

A Lancia Aurelia B24 Spider is valued at $982,260-1.4m.

The model is one of 240 roadster variants of the popular Aurelia built between 1954 and 1955.

It was created by the renowned designer Vittorio Jano, who is best known for race cars such as the Alfa Romeo 12C.

The present lot was debuted at the 1955 Brussels Motor Show, making this the first Aurelia Spider seen by the public.

One Aurelia B24 Spider made $1.8m at Gooding & Company in 2014.

Bonhams comments: "Its rarity, sheer elegance and excellent road manners make the B24 Spider America without doubt the most desirable Lancia model ever and this unique prototype and oldest surviving example even more so.

"Surely a unique opportunity for the serious collector of Italian cars."
