When considering the greater Ferrari 275 GTB hierarchy, it is clear that chassis 08311 is truly one of the most desirable produced. Boasting aluminum coachwork and six Weber carburetors, 08311 was only the second GTB to be fitted with a torque tube.

In 1980, the car returned to Italy, where it was subsequently purchased by Luigi Compiano of Treviso, Italy, and remained in his vast car collection for nearly four decades.

The current owner had the car restored cosmetically and mechanically. Following the restoration, it was Classiche certified. Additionally, correct knockoff wheels were fitted along with correct Michelin XWX tires. A correct toolkit, jack, handbooks and history file accompany the car.

Fully certified by Ferrari Classiche, chassis 08311 wants for nothing and is truly worthy of inclusion in any of the world’s most exclusive Ferrari collections. It would be a brilliant car to drive and enjoy at the world’s most exclusive concours events.
