Classiche has taken delivery of one of the most important vehicles it has ever worked on since its creation to 2006. Classiche has received Steve McQueen's 275 GTB4275 GTB4Ferrari 275 GTB4Italy, 1966 > 196732 photos
for a complicated restoration. McQueen bought the car in San Francisco while he was filming Bullitt in 1968. 

At some point in the 80s, the car was converted from a coupe to a Spider. The current owner wants the car as it left the factory, and Ferrari Classiche is one of the best ways to do that. It has access to the original factory documents and will be able to give the car a certificate of authenticity when finished that it is factory-correct. Classiche will remove the previous modifications and create handmade roof and panels for the car.

McQueen was a committed lover of cars and motorcycles. Not only did he star is great car films like Bullitt and Le Mans, he was a noted race car driver having won his class in the 1970 12 Hours of Sebring in a Porsche 908/2908/2 SpyderPorsche 908/2 SpyderGermany, 1969 > present1 photo

The 275 GTB4 was a significantly upgraded version of the 275 GTB. It had completely different styling from Scaglietti, especially in the front. The engine was also modified with two additional camshafts. The GTB4 produced 300hp from its four-cam, 3.3l V12 compared to 280hp from the original two-cam version. Ferrari built 280 of them between 1966 and 1968.
