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.
