1964 FERRARI 275 GTB/C SPECIALE

Ferrari built just three of these cars, each with lightweight aluminium bodywork and a 316bhp 3.2-litre V12 engine.

The 1964 275 GTB/C Speciale models were intended to be the evolution of the legendary 250 GTO, which had dominated GT endurance racing since the 1962 season. Each of the three 275 GTB/C Speciales were hand-built, utilizing a lightweight tube-frame chassis wrapped in aluminum body panels, with power coming from a 3.3-liter V-12 engine. In competition trim, six Weber 38 DCN carburetors fed the Type 213 engine, which used oversize valves in modified cylinder heads, along with a less restrictive exhaust system, to produce an output of 320 horsepower.
