1965 London Motorshow car
Ferrari launched the successor to the 250 dynasty at the 1964 Paris Motor Show, the 275 family had arrived. Ferrari developed a lot of advanced constructions for their racing activities, a few important constructions found their way to the Ferrar 275 GTB production sportscar. The Ferrari 275 GTB was the first Ferrari featuring independent rear suspension, above that it was the first Ferrari road car fitted with a transaxle! (gearbox in unit with the differential to obtain an ideal weight distribution) still found in contemporary Ferarris.
Powered by the last of the successful lie of "Colombo" V12 engines, now in 250bhp, 3286cc form. The engine breathed via three Weber carbs as standard, six carbs were available to special order, gaining another 20bhp or so.
The Ferrari 275 GTB was constructed with a steel body finished off with aluminium doors, bonnet and boot lid. During the entire production period an optional aluminium body was available on request.
The Ferrari 275 GTB was not only the first Ferrari road car with independent rear suspension and a transaxle construction it was also the first Ferrari road car with standard fitted alloy wheels.
Borrani wire wheels with aluminium rims were available on customer request.
The Ferrari 275 GTB not only featured fantastic technology, the car was also blessed with one of the most breathtaking Pininfarina bodywork designs ever... The car shows strong family resemblance with the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO racing car. Distinctive design hallmarks of the 275 GTB are: the front side with intriguing "mouth", recessed grille, Plexiglas covered head lamps, the front wings and rear roof pillars with louvers and the rear with powerful rounded wings... The cars were built at two locations, at Pininfarina and Scaglietti.

Again the Ferrari 275 GTB took advantage of the Ferrari racing experience; the 275 GTB/4 became the first Ferrari road car with four overhead camshafts! From that moment on the 275 GTB with two overhead camshafts was named 275 GTB/2 by the public. The 275 GTB/4 can externally only be distinguished from the 275 GTB/2 by a subtle "power bulge" on the bonnet.

Nowadays the Ferrari 275 GTB is a very much sought after Ferrari, that is no surprise at all; it is one of the most beautiful and most impressive cars ever designed...
455 cars were produced from 1964-1966
