The 275 GTB/C is the car Ferrari built to replace the legendary 250 series, including the official work of art 250 GTO. With the 250's enormous success on the track, Ferrari engineers had big shoes to fill — and to say they exceeded their mark is an understatement. Despite looking similar to the road-going version, the 275 GTB/C — "C" for "Competizione" — had a completely new body and chassis built of lightweight steel and aluminum. Only 12 were made, and each one is incredibly sought-after, second only to the aforementioned 250 GTO. This 275 GTB/C was sold to a private company instead of a racing team and did not enter its first race until 1969. Just over 80,000 kilometers later, this is one of the best examples of Ferrari at the height of its sportscar powers.
