Clint Eastwood and his ‘67 Ferrari 275 GT/B

For connoisseures, the Ferrari 275 was the best looking of all Ferrari GTs in Berlinetta form, which is attested by a roll call of such celebrity owners as James Coburn, George Harrison, Miles Davis, Eric Clapton, Clint Eastwood, and Peter Sellers. In 1964, it boasted Ferrari’s first transaxle and all-round independent suspension, but after just a couple of years, it was heavily updated. Significant developments included not just the introduction of the smoother and more powerful dry-sump, four-cam engine but also a redesigned transaxle and steadying torque tube. With 300 bhp at 8,000 rpm from the 3,286-cubic centimeter V-12, the 275 GTB/4 was capable of 0–60 mph in 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 163 mph.

The 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 below was sold for $10,175,000 in 2014.
