The Ferrari 275 GTB is a legendary sports car that holds a significant place in automotive history. Introduced in 1964, it was designed and manufactured by the renowned Italian automaker, Ferrari. The "275" in its name refers to the engine's displacement of 275cc per cylinder, while "GTB" stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, indicating its grand touring coupe body style.
The Ferrari 275 GTB was a successor to the iconic 250 GT series and represented a significant leap forward in terms of design and performance. It featured a sleek and aerodynamic body, designed by Pininfarina, which showcased elegant lines and a distinctive long hood. The GTB's design was a collaboration between Pininfarina and Scaglietti, resulting in a visually stunning and timeless appearance.
Under the hood, the 275 GTB housed a powerful 3.3-liter V12 engine, initially producing around 280 horsepower. This engine was mounted in the front and mated to a five-speed manual transmission, delivering exhilarating performance. The GTB could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 6 seconds and reach a top speed of approximately 160 mph, making it one of the fastest cars of its time.
Throughout its production years, the Ferrari 275 GTB underwent several updates and variations. The early models, known as the "short-nose" versions, featured a shorter front end, while the later models, called the "long-nose" versions, had an extended front end for improved aerodynamics and stability.
The Ferrari 275 GTB also had a racing variant, the 275 GTB/C, which achieved notable success in endurance racing events such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Today, the Ferrari 275 GTB is highly regarded as a classic and collectible car, sought after by automotive enthusiasts and collectors worldwide. Its combination of stunning design, exceptional performance, and racing pedigree contribute to its enduring appeal and historical significance in the world of sports cars.
