This Ferrari 275 is Achingly Gorgeous

Some consider the Ferrari 275 the most beautiful car ever built. People who might agree include: actor Steve McQueen (who owned a 275 GTS, 275 GTB/4 and a 275 NART Spyder), actor Nicholas Cage (who used to own two 275 GTB/4s), former racer, Ferrari CEO, and GM of Scuderia Ferrari Jean Todt, actresses Sophia Loren and Catherine Deneuve each owned one too. Director Roman Polanski bought one new, as well, rumored to have been for Ms. Sharon Tate. Even jazz legend Miles Davis owned one!

Perhaps you could argue that the 250 GTO is prettier or maybe the 250 SWB. Whatever your preference though, there is no denying the classic Pininfarina proportions and perfect stance the 275 possesses. And the light blue hue imparts a classic look that almost belies the nature of the monster engine lurking under the hood. Cars like this are the essence of Ferrari–simple and elegant.

If you have an ounce of 30wt oil in your veins, you gotta love this car.

The 275 GTB is certainly a pretty one. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong no matter what 50’s-60’s Ferrari you choose.

I think the 275 GTB/4 Competizione is even more prettier

It is a very magnificent car and the color just seems to really make the car standout in a good way.

You can add comic genius Peter Sellers, and guitar legend Eric Clapton to the list of celebrity 275 owners.

Stunning but not as drop dead beautiful as a Lusso. McQueen had one of those as well.

Perfect! And yes, the light blue color is so much better than the stereotypical Ferrari red.

It’s not stereotypical, it’s just typical. It’s different sure and certainly beautiful, but better? Red is classic Ferrari.
