Shown at the 1964 Paris Motor Show, this was the only prototype for the all-new 275 GTB production model. Following its show duties, it was retained by Ferrari for testing and development purposes. During this period, it evolved and eventually, the original short front-nose was replaced with the long-nose design introduced to the production models after around 250 275 GTBs had been built. At the end of April 1965, it was sold to its private owner, Italian Pasquale Ramera. He did not take delivery of the car immediately as it was in the process of being converted into a rally car by the factory. Ferrari's racing manager, Eugenio Dragoni, was personally involved and the development was carried out by factory test driver Roberto Lippi and Lancia rally ace Giorgio Pianta. Among the changes were the revised engine cover, additional driving lights, a 75% locking differential and a third windscreen wiper. The goal of all this work was an entry in the 1966 Rally Monte Carlo. Finished in yellow. it was entered for Pianta with Lippi serving as the co-driver. The car proved remarkably effective until a driveline issue prompted an early retirement. Not raced again, the unique 275 GTB Prototype was sold on in April of 1967 and remained in Italy until 1977 when it was exported to the United States. Here it changed hands several times until it was sold by collector Chuck Wegner to a longtime custodian in 1994. From his collection, the one-off Ferrari was consigned as one of the headliners of the 2019 Gooding Scottsdale Auctions.
