This Immaculate 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Is One Of 12 Ultra-Rare Models

In the middle of the 20th century, Ferrari’s dominance at Le Mans, the Tour de France, Sebring, and Daytona went relatively unchallenged. It wasn’t until the late 1960s that the company decided to upgrade its lauded 250 platforms to stay ahead of the competition. The introduction of the 275 was its first step toward this goal, and from it, the 275 GTB Berlinetta Competizione (or GTB/C) was born.

The 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C you see here was one of twelve variants ever produced, and, as such, it was one of the first to adopt the company’s new Tipo 590A chassis, reinforced wheel hubs, and a lighter-than-standard Scaglietti silhouette. However, this particular model didn’t fall into the hands of a prolific racing team; instead, it was sold to Milan’s Editoriale Il Borgo di Luciano Conti e C, a private company owned by Luciano Conti. Until the GTB/C was given to its third owner, Vito Figlioli, it had never touched the track; but, in 1969, it entered its first-ever competition, the Colle San Eusebio Hillclimb, where it would perform swimmingly. Over the years, the vehicle would pass through the hands of numerous Italian drivers, before coming to rest in the United Kingdom. In 2017, the 275 GTB/C was fully restored at Mark Allin’s Rare Drive, returning it to period-correct condition just ahead of its reveal at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Now, it’s slated to leave the hands of its most recent owner, once again. Head to RM Sotheby’s website for more information.
