One of only twelve 275 GTB/Cs built for the 1966 race season as a rule–bending “pure” race car that shared some parts and styling with the much heavier, less sophisticated and less powerful standard “road” cars. Fitted with a tipo 213/comp 3.3 liter engine with three special 40 DFI3 Weber carbs, the 275 GTB/C engine is a mildly detuned 275 LM engine and features dry sump lubrication, a 22 quart oil capacity and a massive oil cooler. The pistons are forged 9.3:1 with lightweight connecting rods and a competition crankshaft. Cams are tipo 130 (GTO and LM) competition camshafts with high temperature steel valves and needle bearing rocker arms. The valve and camshaft drive chain covers, the bellhousing and the transaxle case are in magnesium alloy. With 320 hp the 275 GTB/C engines were the most powerful GT motors as yet made by Ferrari.

Supported by a lightweight chassis tipo 509 A and covered with an aluminum body even thinner than that used on the legendary 250 GTO; the 275 GTB/Cs also featured larger and wider wheel wells and wider wheels and tires. These powerful, well–balanced and lightweight racers were truly built as a replacement for the highly treasured (and very expensive) legendary 250 GTOs. With only twelve 275 GTB/C “silhouette racers” built, these cars are an important asset to any Ferrari collection. Priced correctly at $1,250,000.
