Ferrari 275 GTB/C

What you're looking at here is two things: a racing legend, and something that should be pretty high on your shopping list if your EuroMillions numbers come up this week.
For the 1966 racing season, Ferrari built twelve 275 GTB/Cs - lightweight versions of the GTB road car with ultra-thin aluminium bodywork by Scaglietti. This one, chassis no.9079, was originally delivered to Georges Filipinetti of the Swiss Scuderia Filipinetti racing team, who entered it in the 1967 24 Heures du Mans. It finished 11th and won its class, and was subsequently sold to racer Jacques Rey. Among many, many other races, this 275 had the honour of competing at Le Mans three years running!
More recently, it's been fully restored for the concours circuit, and is now for sale at Fiskens. Why not click here and buy it...? (Y'know, if you've picked the right six numbers.)
