The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder

Years produced: 1967-1968

Number built: 10

The Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder is among the most collectible Ferraris because it's a factory-sanctioned convertible version of another celebrated Ferrari, was produced in small numbers, and was touched by the glamour of both the race track and the silver screen.

Ferrari's U.S. importer Luigi Chinetti prevailed upon the factory to cut the top off the glorious 275 GTB/4 berlinetta coupe. The resulting convertible was dubbed the Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spyder, its name a tie in to Chinetti's North American Racing Team. The car used the same 300-horsepower 3.3-liter V-12 as the berlinetta, and one raced in the 12 Hours of Sebring. Another NART Spyder was the subject of a noted Road & Track cover story in which the magazine called it "The most satisfying sports car in the world." And one starred with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway in the Hollywood hit, The Thomas Crown Affair.
