Ferrari 575 GTC Evoluzione

The opening Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli 2005 race will take place on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari autodrome, Imola. The Italian GT championship will also kick off this weekend with the Ferrari 575 GTC Evoluzione 2005 and the 550 Maranello appearing in the main class and the 360 GTC in the N-GT category.

It will be the debut race for the modified 575 GTC. The Ferrari Corse Clienti department has made changes to the original version with the collaboration of the technical GT head, Maurizio Nardon. The aerodynamics were completely revised with the addition of a new splitter and air intake on the modified bonnet. These changes improve internal air flow. The engine has been totally redesigned and, together with the new cooling tank, results in greater power and better handling. The current torque curve guarantees improved power management and the work on the steering column means that the new car is easier to point into curves and performs more smoothly when in them.

The tests on the 575 GTC Evoluzione 2005 were carried out by the Brazilian driver Jaime Melo. The model is destined to be used by private teams competing in various GT series.
