Ferrari 275 GTB Sets Online Auction Sales Record

Ferrari 275 GTB sets collector car record price for online only auctions

  • Ferrari grabs more than $3 million at online-only auction

  • White 275 takes title from silver Enzo that sold for $2.64m previously


Classic car sellers worried that a move to digital auctions could hurt the value of their cars can sleep a little more soundly after a Ferrari 275 set a new record for highest-priced collector car in an online auction. The classic hit $3.08 million (CAD 4.09) at a Goodings online sale last week.

The 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB long nose was a stunning example finished in white with tan full-leather interior. Unrestored, but still looking nearly as new, the car sold in the range that it likely would have at an in-person auction.

Coming with its original books, tool kit, wire wheels, and records dating back to 1969, the car was one of the last two-cam 275 GTBs built. It was also one of very few with the rare competition-style fuel filler cap on the rear fender,

This Ferrari takes the place of another odd-coloured Ferrari in the top online-only auction sale. The last one, says Classic Cars Journal, was a silver 2003 Enzo that brought $2.64 million (CAD 3.5m) at a previous RM Sotheby’s sale.

“Our first ever online only sale was a great success for both our clients and the company,” David Gooding, president of the auction company, told Classic Cars. “The demand of quality cars has not faded during such uncertain times, and we are thrilled to provide Geared Online to the world.”

The company’s next auction is set for September 5th, taking place live from Hampton Court Palace in London. It will be broadcast live on Gooding’s site, YouTube, and mobile apps, with phone and absentee bidding available.
