An extremely rare 1966 Ferrari 275 Gran Turismo Berlinetta Competizione Scaglietti is set to go under the hammer at Bonhams January auctions next year.

This particular Ferrari 275 Competizione Scaglietti recently took part in the Italian firm’s 60th anniversary celebrations in Beverly Hills. Additionally, it is one of just 12 examples ever produced and was originally owned by Georges Filipinetti, a race team owner and race driver who took part in the 1967 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in it as well as the Spa-Francorchamps endurance race in 1969. It came first in the GT class in both of these historic races.

After being retired from racing, the car joined an American collection before being damaged by fire in 1985. However, it was restored in Italy soon after and on January 15, will go under the hammer.

It remains to be seen just how much the car will sell for, but in recent times, Ferrari 250 GTOs have been selling for over $30 million and this 275 Gran Turismo Berlinetta Competizione Scaglietti is even rarer!
