There is something compelling and captivating about old school design. From architecture to art, automotive design, and more, we can’t seem to get enough of the past. Known for crafting some of the fastest and most iconic automobiles ever made, Ferrari has a stable of icons. Today we get a look at one such example, a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS Convertible, which will soon be hitting the auction block. This particular ride is one of just 200 built, and it has a royal provenance that adds to its appeal. The 275 GTS was powered by the famous 3.3 Colombo V12, while the bodywork was penned by Pininfarina.
The ride was initially purchased by Prince Abdallah Moulay, the brother of King Hassan II of Morocco. The car remained in the family until the late ’60s when it moved to Casablanca under the ownership of a French ex-pat. From there, the vehicle would travel to America, West Germany, and back to America. Along the way, a number of additions were included, and it was repaint to red. These days the machine is back to its original color and boasts nearly 60,000 miles on the dash. Not only a great looking car, but it’s also one worth adding to your collection immediately.
