1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4

In 1967, Ferrari renamed the 275 to reflect its new four cam engine. It was an important evolution of Ferrari's signature sports car that already had 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes, a 3.3-liter V12 and one of Pininfarina's best body designs.
At the 1966 Paris Auto Salon Ferrari launched the GTB/4 with the new Tipo 226 engine. It benefited from a variety of upgrades introduced into the series that were tried and tested in the 275 competition models. Upgrades included a long nose bodywork, a torque tube driveline and an engine capable of 300 bhp with a dry sump lubrication system.
GTB/4's are easily identified by a hood blister that accommodates the larger air filter housing. Most cars were bodied in steel, but a few received aluminum bodies. The chassis was slightly modified for a increased front and rear track.
The move to the quad cam engine was motivated by Ferruccio Lamborghini who spent a fortune making engines that were more radical than Ferrari’s. The quad cam kept Ferrari on pace, but it could be argued that sales brochure figures were the primary beneficiary of the GTB/4’s introduction since any actual performance increase was slight.
The GTB/4 was the last incarnation of the 275 and was replaced by the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. In total, almost a thousand examples were made and only a handful of these were made with aluminum bodies and even less were delivered as NART Spyders.
