The Ferrari 275 GTS of Gigi Riva, the all-time leading scorer for the Italian national team.
The Ferrari 275 GTS made its debut alongside the Ferrari 275 GTB in October 1964 at the Paris Auto Show.
Both cars looked completely different, but underneath they bore similar 3.3-liter Colombo V-12s called the Tipo 213, chassis, and suspensions.
This new Cabriolet, the replacement for the 250 GT Series II Cabriolet, was clearly intended for the American market. Producing a capable 260 bhp, it could power the luxurious cabriolet to around 150 mph.
Pininfarina designed and built 200 Ferrari 275 GTS (186 in left hand drive and 14 in right hand drive) between 1964-1966 with entirely different bodywork. It was intended to be more of a GT car and less of a sports car than its GTB brother.
The chassis was thoroughly revised to include four-wheel independent suspension. Double wishbones were implemented at all four corners as were disc brakes.
The GTS was much more luxurious than the Ferrari 275 GTB, with fully adjustable and more-comfortable bucket seats, greater luggage space, and a softer ride. The top was particularly ingenious, capable of being raised and lowered with one hand and stowing in a shallow well behind the seats.
The 275 GTS was replaced by the 330 GTS.
This chassis was owned by Luigi Riva (born November 7, 1944), best known as Gigi Riva or by his nickname Rombo di Tuono (Roar of Thunder). He is a former Italian footballer, the all-time leading scorer for the Italian national team. Considered one of the best forwards of his generation, Riva enjoyed a remarkable scoring record for Cagliari thanks to his composure in front of goal, fearsome left foot and aerial ability. He led Cagliari to their only Serie A title in 1969-70, as well as winning the 1968 UEFA European Championship with Italy.
