Ferrari 275 GTB GTB/6C Alloy 1966

General description : In 1964 Ferrari unveiled the '275' following the huge success of the '250' series - entrusting Pininfarina to design its beautifully aggressive, and now legendary, bodywork. The 275 GTB, built by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, was the last Pininfarina creation supervised by Pinin himself.The 275 was ground-breaking as it was the first road car to feature independent rear suspension that used a double-wishbone and coil-spring set-up, (inspired by the 250LM) and also because it adopted a rear-mounted five-speed transaxle holding both the gearbox and differential in a single housing, a characteristic that helped improve weight distribution and a feature that characterised future generations of Ferrari's front-engined road cars.The V12 Colombo engine has a displacement of 3.3 Litres producing 300 bhp and with its ground breaking independent rear suspension and rear mounted five speed transaxle holding both the gearbox and differential in a single housing it delivers the power beautifully with a much better balance and weight distribution for a front engine road car.The car we are incredibly lucky to offer for sale is the Ultimate specification Ferrari 275 GTB. This 1966 Series 2 Longnose 6 Carburettor Aluminium bodied 275 is the 7th RHD 275 GTB produced and is one of just two RHD drive U.K. cars specified with both the lighter alloy body and more powerful six-carburettor arrangement.This car was delivered by Maranello Concessionaires in January 1966 to its first owner.

About Ferrari
The first Ferrari road car was the 125 S introduced in 1947 and powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine, right?
Well it's not quite that simple, Ferrari did in fact produce e Tipo 815, in 1940. Tipo 815 was designed by ex-Alfa Romeo engineers Alberto Massimino and Vittorio Bellentani and by Enrico Nardi under Enzo's company but legal issues with the former associate Alfa Romeo prevented Ferrari from launching the Ferrari marque at that point.

Enzo did produce a series of fine road cars in the 50's and 60's but they were merely to finance his true passion racing, wheather GT/Sports car or Grand Prix. The 50's saw the birth of Ferrari's most memorable cars, 250 GTB (tour de France) 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT swb just to name a few.

Under the surface tension was growing though. In November 1961 long-time sales manager Girolamo Gardini made an ultimatum to Enzo: if tensions continued, he would leave the company. As a result, Gardini was ousted, as well as Scuderia Ferrari manager Romolo Tavoni, chief engineer Carlo Chiti, experimental sports car development chief Giotto Bizzarrini, and a number of others who stood by them.
Without Chiti and Bizzarrini the development of what was to become the most quintessential Ferrari and today the world's most expensive car, 250 GTO, was at a pivoting point. 250 GTO project was saved by a young engineer Mauro Forghieri and long-time racing bodyman Sergio Scaglietti who stepped in and took over the program with known results.

In addition to 250 GTO, Ferrari launced such master pieces as 250 LM, 250P, 275 GTB, 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" during the the 60's
By the late 60's Ferrari's prototypes' success came to a sudden halt by a new competitor, GT40. Ford turned to Lola to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after Enzo had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that gave Ferrari some heavy hits in Le Mans 24 to come.
By the end of the 60's FIAT purchased 50% of the company, starting a development that has led to a new mass-produced era of Ferraris.
