An extremely rare 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS is currently available for auction over at renowned automotive auction house RM Sotheby’s.

First released almost 55 years ago, only 200 units of the elegant Pininfarina-designed convertible were produced — this current one being the 189th example. Carrying a legendary 3.3-L Columbo V12 engine and finished in Verde Pino Metalizzato paint, the car was originally owned by Prince Abdallah Moulay, the brother of King Hassan II of Morocco, who kept it in the royal family until the late ’60s, when it was sold to a French expat in Casablanca. From then, the vintage car would make its way through America to Germany and finally back Stateside again, receiving a restoration in the early 2000s. With a mileage of 60,000 miles, the classic Ferrari is now being offered for $1.6 million USD.

For the vintage car collectors out there, head over to RM Sotheby’s site to learn more about the 1965 Ferrari 275 GTS.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, the Chevrolet Suburban has become the first car to be award a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
