  • The 10th 275 GTS constructed
  • Ferrari Classiche certified
  • Single ownership for over 30 years
  • Presented in its seldom seen and original colours of Nero over Nuvola


Of a grand total of 200 Ferrari 275 GTSs constructed, chassis number 06819 was the 10th example off of the production line. Originally finished in a highly attractive but seldom seen colour combination of Nero (18.292) over Nuvola (VM 3015), it was sold new in its native Italy to Mrs Dino Fabbri, wife of a Milanese publisher and Ferrari collector, according to Ferrari historian Marcel Massini. It was then registered as VC 120663. The car was traded back to the original selling dealer, M.G. Crepaldi S.a.S., of Milan, in 1968 and sold to the second owner, Cesare de Lucchi, of Gallarate, Varese area, near Milan.

The de Lucchi family would go on to be the loving caretakers of chassis number 06819 for over 30 years. During their ownership, it was restored in 1990 and 1991 by Scapini and Bruttomesso in Varese. It was driven by Mr de Lucchi during Ferrari’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 1997, and the interior was refurbished by Luppi in Modena in 2002. Sadly, de Lucchi passed away around that time. The car, however, remained in the family and was inherited by his son, Vittorio.

The car finally left the de Lucchis in 2007 when it was sold to Marcus Wood of London, England. Shortly after its arrival in the United Kingdom, the car received a sympathetic restoration by GTO Engineering and was sold once again, in 2008, to its current owner in France. At that time, the car was showing only 35,000 kilometres from new. Since then, the cylinder heads have been modified for unleaded fuel in 2010 at a cost of €13,500. Since that time, it has always been driven and enjoyed by its current custodian and is currently showing 54,000 kilometres from new. Furthermore, the car has also received Ferrari Classiche certification, confirming that it retains its original engine, and is currently fitted with a gearbox of the correct type.

A lovely car with known history, still in its original colour combination, accompanied with a tool kit and owner’s manual, and Classiche certification to its name, this is truly a 275 GTS to cherish.





• Il 10° esemplare costruito di 275 GTS
• Certificata Ferrari Classiche
• Un unico proprietario per oltre 30 anni
• Presentata nei suoi colori originali, e raramente visti, di Nero su interni Nuvola

Delle 200 Ferrari 275 GTS costruite, il numero di telaio 06819 è stato il 10° esemplare a lasciare la linea di produzione, originariamente finito in una combinazione cromatica di grande attrattiva, ma raramente vista, di colore Nero (18.292) su interni Nuvola (VM 3015). Secondo quanto risulta allo storico Ferrari Marcel Massini, la macchina è stata venduta nuova in Italia, alla moglie dell’editore milanese e collezionista Ferrari, Dino Fabbri, e targata VC 120663. La vettura è poi passata di mano, sempre attraverso lo stesso concessionario, M.G. Crepaldi S.A.S. di Milano, nel 1968 e venduta al secondo proprietario, Cesare de Lucchi, di Gallarate, in provincia di Varese.

La famiglia de Lucchi rimarrà poi amorevole custode della macchina con numero di telaio 06819, per oltre 30 anni. Durante la loro proprietà, la 275 è stata restaurata, tra il 1990 ed il 1991, dalla Scapini e Bruttomesso di Varese. E' stata guidata dal Sig. de Lucchi in persona nelle celebrazioni del 50° anniversario della Ferrari nel 1997 e, l'interno è stato restaurato da Luppi, a Modena, nel 2002. Proprio in quel periodo viene a mancare de Lucchi ma, la macchina rimane, comunque in famiglia, ereditata dal figlio Vittorio.

La vettura lascia la famiglia de Lucchi nel 2007, venduta a Marcus Wood di Londra, Inghilterra. Poco dopo il suo arrivo nel Regno Unito, viene totalmente resturata presso la GTO Engineering e subito rivenduta, siamo nel 2008, con soli 35.000 chilometri percorsi da nuova in Francia al suo attuale proprietario. Nel 2010 la testata è stata modificata per poter utilizzare la benzina senza piombo, con un costo di € 13.500. Da quel momento è sempre stata guidata e goduta dal suo proprietario e, oggi, ha percorso un totale di 54.000 chilometri da nuova. Inoltre, la macchina ha ricevuto la certificazione Ferrari Classiche, che conferma che la vettura mantiene il suo motore originale ed è attualmente dotata di un cambio del tipo corretto.

Una bella macchina con la storia conosciuta, ancora nella sua combinazione di colori originale, accompagnata nella vendita dal suo kit attrezzi e dal manuale uso e manutenzione originali e dalla certificazione di Ferrari Classiche. Questa è veramente una 275 GTS di cui bisogna prendersi cura.
