Now that the weather is getting better again, you see more and more oldtimers on the road. The perfect moment to put this rare car in the spotlight. The Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale even belongs in the list of the 10 most expensive cars ever auctioned.
Only four of this beautiful Italian oldtimer were produced between 1964 and 1966, one of them even being just a prototype. The alloy bodywork was designed by the Italian car design company Pininfarina and built by Scaglietti. The body of the 275 GTB/C Speciale was surprisingly different from that of the 275 GTB. This version is more similar to the Ferrari 250 GTO and the 330 LMB due to its more streamlined shape. Moreover, Ferrari experimented with aerodynamics at the time, so all four cars slightly differ in their bodywork.
Only four of this beautiful Italian classic car have been produced.
The Ferrari 275 GTB Competizione Speciale, or simply 275 GTB/C Speciale, was the first race version to be released in the 275 series. The mechanical aspect of the car was designed under the supervision of Mauro Forghieri. This model was intended as a successor to the 250 GTO in the Ferrari GT class during the 1965 racing season. Unfortunately only one of the four cars took part in the Targa Florio but it did not make it to the finish line.
The 275 GTB/C Special is the fifth most expensive Ferrari ever sold
In 2014 one of the four 275 GTB/C Speciales (chassisnumber 06701) was auctioned by auction house RM Sotheby's. Because it's such a rare car and its value had been so high in recent years, expectations were very high. Eventually the Ferrari was sold for 26.4 million dollars, or 23.5 million euros. This makes the 275 GTB/C Speciale the fifth most expensive Ferrari ever sold and its value will probably continue to rise.
