Ferrari GTB/C Speciale
There is a lot of buzz surrounding a rare 1960’s racer that will be crossing the auction block next month during the Monterey events auction put on by RM Auctions house. This 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale is one of three vehicles produced late 1964/early 1965 and is expected to eclipse the previous sales recorder holder, a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4S NART Spider that sold in 2013.
The Ferrari 275 GTB racer was created in 1965 to challenge the very dominant Ford GT 40 in the Le Mans racing series. The 275 GTB racing variant features aluminum bodywork along with a lighter chassis and an additional 70 horsepower compared to its stock siblings from the same year. Being the first Ferrari to feature an independent rear suspension, the 275 GTB/C Speciale is considered rarer than some of its competitive counterparts. This particular example is a standout due to the fact that this racer never competed professionally and remains a numbers matching vehicle. For these reasons, RM Auction house is expecting to attract serious buyers with deep pockets who have the potential to make this little racer the record holder for most expensive Ferrari bought at auction.
