1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta
300bhp at 8,000 rpm, 3,286 cc four overhead cam 60-degree V12 engine, six Weber 40 DCN17 carburetors, five-speed manual rear-mounted transaxle, four-wheel independent suspension with upper and lower wishbones, coil springs and tubular shocks, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 94.5"

Unveiled at the Paris Salon in October 1964 Ferrari’s new berlinetta, the 275 GTB was an evolution of the preceding 250 GT cars such as the 250 GT “Lusso”. The aggressive styling of the 275 GTB was quite similar to that of Ferrari’s GTO and was regarded as being among the purest and most beautiful of any Ferrari built. Pininfarina had created a true, timeless classic of sports car design which was beautifully executed by Scaglietti. In October 1966 at the Paris Salon, Ferrari introduced the next evolution of the 275 GTB, the 275 GTB/4. Other than an increase in track by 24 mm, the chassis was unchanged. Outwardly the new car was the same other than a full-length bulge down the bonnet to clear the six downdraft Webers.

The change in model designation simply reflected the single substantial difference between the GTB/4 and its predecessor; the V12 engine was fitted with four overhead camshafts, two per cylinder bank. This revised powerplant, known as Tipo 226, was directly derived from the 3.3 and 4-liter engines which powered the 275 and 330 P2 prototypes of the 1965 racing season. With remarkable mid-range torque and flexibility, this formidable engine was capable of propelling the new 275 GTB/4 to a top speed of 160 miles per hour. Competition power levels had been made available to Ferrari’s clients right off the showroom floor.

With its rear-mounted trans-axle, Ferrari had produced a car with perfect weight distribution that handled superbly. The 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta is, first and foremost, a serious and comfortable Gran Turismo, but it retains the lineage of a race car in the response of the engine and the quality of the handling. The 275 GTB/4 is always a consensus pick for one of the greatest automobiles ever created.
