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.
