A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta will lead a line-up of rare Ferrari road cars on offer at Mecum Auctions this month.
Mecum's annual sale in Kissimmee, Florida will feature around 3,000 collector cars and vehicles, along with vintage road art and automobilia.
The latest additions to the roster are several sought-after Ferraris, built during the 1960s-70s. The most notable of these is a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta, offered at auction for the first time in generations after spending 45 years in the collection of Ferrari mechanic Terry Myr.
Featuring bodywork designed by Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti, the GTB/4 Berlinetta was the first GT to include independent suspension at all four corners.

Period Ferraris in such original condition rarely appear on the market, and this example is estimated to sell for $2.8-$3.5m.

Retaining its original 4.4-litre double overhead cam V12 engine and 5-speed gearbox, the beautifully-restored car is a recent concours award winner and comes with an estimate of $750,000-$900,000.
