Ferrari restore 275GTB/4 of Steve McQueen
Ferrari is currently restoring a unique 275GTB/4 which was once in possession of American actor Steve McQueen (in 1968). The current owner must have wondered what could be the best possible way to restore this mistreated exotic’s honor. And who could do a better job than Maranello’s people themselves? We’re not talking about something trivial here; this style icon didn’t only have a huge amount of different owners in the course of years, in the eighties it was even ‘illegally’ transformed into a Spider.
Rehabilitation is literally made possible by Ferrari, and a special certificate of authenticity is included. The versatile Italian sports car manufacturer will single-handedly restore the car into its original state, as if it were rolling out of the factory a very long time ago. Because Ferrari possesses all necessary data, no one could do a better job (logically). Naturally this comes with a price tag for the ordering customer, yet given the market value of these kinds of vehicles (classic Ferrari’s are the most wanted by auction houses such as RM Auctions), it’s worth it; Italian exotics grow in value every year. As of 2006, Ferrari successfully restored no less than 3300 cars thanks to its historical archive it possesses.
