1966 saw Ferrari launch the 275 GTB/C on a completely new chassis that Mauro Foghieri had designed for a dual-purpose race car. Designated as Tipo 590A, it was lighter and stronger than the standard 275 chassis. A total of twelve 275 GTB/C Scaglietti Berlinetta Competizione cars were built by Ferrari’s racing department at Maranello, each being outfitted with a relatively voluptuous body that was characteristic of the designs by Pinifarina during that period of time.

To allow clearance for racing tires (7” x 15” in the front and 7.5” x 15” in the rear), the wheel arches are flared to make the body of the GTB/C wider than a regular production GTB, especially in the rear, where fenders widen out behind the doors. The aluminum body is also covered by a 0.028-inch (21 gauge) skin only half as thick as that on a normal-bodied GTB.

Last but not the least, the interior of the 275 GTB/C is built with rear mounts, whereas its rear section is reinforced to prevent it from flexing under impact. With an impressive race record over the decades, the 275 GTB/C is going to be remembered and honored as one of Ferrari’s last true dual-purpose race cars. For many Ferrari enthusiasts, the 275 GTB/C has the same features that have made the GTO a much-sought-after prize possession.

“Ferrari 275 GTB/C, No. 6 of 12 Built, Heads to Gooding Peabble Beach Auction, Est 12 to 16 Million”

The above headline of a report in the mass media caught a lot of attention on July 20, 2017. It referred to the forthcoming auction of Ferrari GTB/C Chassis 09051, a racecar that was acclaimed as “one of the finest Ferrari Berlinettas in existence.”

Back in 1966, Ferrari launched a new competition version of the 275 GTB and designated this series as 275 GTB/C. Twelve 275 GTB/C cars were built by the racing department of Ferrari at Maranello, and eight of them, including Chassis 09051, featured a left-hand drive configuration.

Delivered on June 12, 1966, Chassis 09051 participated in more than 20 races successfully between 1966 and 1970. In the hands of its first two owners Renzo Sinidaldi and Alberto Federici, it clinched numerous class and overall wins. At the 2007 Pebble Beech Concours d’Elegance, Chassis 09051 was awarded the 2nd place in class trophy. At the 2017 auction, Chassis 09051 eventually was sold for US $14,520,000.

CMC will replicate this high-achiever racecar in its original finish of metallic silver with start number 98 – the very look that the car assumed at its first race and the 2017 auction.
