Ferrari 275 GTB MC 0 600x351 at Gallery: Ferrari 275 GTB in Monaco

It may not seem like it to an uninterested eye, but this Ferrari 275 GTB is one of the most valuable cars in the world. A 1967 example of this car was sold two years ago for over ten million dollars, and this one probably costs a little bit more, seeing as it was once owned by one of the Beach Boys.

Belonging when it was new and grey in 1967 to Dennis Wilson, the drummer of The Beach Boys, this Ferrari 275 GTB is now extremely yellow and resides in Monte Carlo where, to be frank, it seems more at home than in California or wherever it was Wilson used to drive it. The car looks like as if it was designed to be viewed against the scenery of the Southern France as the backdrop.

In terms of technical highlights, Ferrari 275 GTB was an engineering marvel in its time, boasting a front, longitudinal 3.28 liter V12 engine with single overhead camshaft per bank, two valves per cylinder, and no less than six 40 Weber DCN/3 carburetors. It develops 280 horsepower which translates into a top speed of 260 km/h. The Berlinetta body sits on a tubular steel chassis via independent suspension front and rear, and the whole thing weighs no more than 1,100 kilograms dry.
