Only 10 Ferrari 275s were built in open-top, Spider configuration, following a direct request from Ferrari’s North American importer at the time, Luigi Chinetti. The car that went for $27.5m was driven by Steve McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair.

The NART Spider is tiny. Standing over it makes anyone feel like a giant, thanks to its miniature wheelbase and very narrow wheel tracks. Matching the size of 1950s racecars more than the 1960s, the NART Spider is just 49 inches tall and weighs under 2,600 pounds.

A longer nose was brought on-board for the GTB/4 models, and the car was offered with a six-pack or carburetors versus the three in all other 275 models. The six carb stacks and the new quad camshafts required a slight hood bulge, but you would never know it was not intentional, thanks to the tasteful Pininfarina detailing. This example has the ultra-rare optional chrome wire wheels and an front bumper bar just above the oval slatted grille.
