The production of the bodies was entrusted to the Scaglietti body shop.

The 275 GTB4 replaced the 275GTB, to which many improvements were made, such as to the engine, which is more pleasant in use, to the transmission, of which the transaxle system linking the axle and the gearbox was considerably improved, and to the suspension. Only 330 units of this version were built, it is the most pleasant 275 model to drive. One thing is certain, no other car produced in 1966 could overshadow this car on the road.

It has just undergone a full restoration, that has taken 18 months, to restore it to its original factory condition. The renowned Bacchelli §Villa body shop near Maranello has restored the bodywork back to its original colour. Other Italian specialists were in charge of restoring the mechanics, the electricity and the leather seats to the exact original state.

A voluminous and very well documented restoration dossier is provided with this Ferrari, which also has a Ferrari Classiche certificate of authenticity, attesting that it is in perfect accordance with the original model.
