In 1964, the Ferrari 275 GTB Berlinetta replaced the Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, the last example of the 250 model series. The Ferrari 275 featured a wider radiator opening over its predecessor, powerful curves and a short Kamm tail. Designed by Pininfarina and constructed by Scaglietti, the body was made of steel with aluminum doors, boot lid and bonnet although some special examples featured a full aluminum body. One year after the launch, the model underwent a design revision, introducing a longer and thinner nose with a flat bonnet. The 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB was constructed on a 94.4-inch wheelbase chassis and was powered by a 3.3-Liter V12 Colombo engine, delivering 280hp. For the first time, Ferrari used an independent rear suspension and a combined gearbox and differential unit, assembled in a transaxle. Capable of a 156 mph top speed and a 0 to 60 launch in just six seconds, the Ferrari 275 was not only a GT (grand touring car), but also a sports car in many respects. Today, it is widely loved by both Ferrari enthusiasts and classic car collectors alike.
At the 1966 Paris Auto Show, Ferrari unveiled a new version of the 275, called the Ferrari 275 GTB/4. The new car boasted revised cylinder heads with four camshafts, hence the GTB/4 designation. This upgrade and the addition of a dry-sump lubrication system increased the power of the car to 300hp. A special edition of Ferrari GTB/C was destined for racing and was built with aluminum, racing suspension systems and six Weber carburetors C stands for Competizione.
