Good news for classic car enthusiasts. A very rare Ferrari 275 GTB4 has been sent to Ferrari Classiche for a complete restoration. It seems that the model belonged to Steve McQueen, a well known American movie actor. He used the Italian sports car during the filming of the 1968 movie Bullitt. The action took place in San Francisco. For the ones who do not know, the Ferrari Classiche is an official part of the Italian brand. It managed to offer restoration and maintenance services, technical assistance and Certificates of Authenticity to a lot of classic Ferrari owners. The previous declarations indicated the fact that the model was actually transformed into an open top Spider from a Coupe. At first the model was brought to the restoration specialists for the authenticity certification process developed by the company. One of the policies indicates that they can offer one only if the car remains in the same specifications like the ones it had when it left the factory. In conclusion, the owner of the Ferrari 275 GTB4 decided to the coupe form the model had at the beginning. The Ferrari Classiche engineers started the restoration and offered a roof and buttresses made of hand-beaten steel panels. According to the carmaker this is quite a profitable investment. For example one classic Ferrari, a 250 GTO built for Stirling Moss has been auctioned for an incredible amount of $35 million. In 1990 one 250 GTO was auctioned for $10.756.833 and was a record at the time. Not long after, in 2008, another Ferrari broke the record. This time it was a 1961 250 California sold by RM Auctions for $10.910.592. In 2011, a 1957 Tesla Rossa was sold for $16.39 million.
