It’s great to return to Ferrari Friday with a vehicle that resembles the entity that left the Ferrari factory.
The 275 GTB/4 was the penultimate of the ‘275 GT’ vehicles Ferrari built between 1964 and 1968, at it’s heart was a 3,286 cc / 200 cui V12 with 2 valves per cylinder but with twin cam heads to operate them, making 4 cams in all hence the /4 suffix. Fuel was fed through 6 carburettors as standard giving the engine a 300 horsepower rating.
Designed primarily as a road car, featuring cast magnesium wheels in place of the older wire wheels, the Scarglietti body work of the 275 GTB/4 could be powered up to 165 mph. Only 280 examples of this type were built.
Hope you have enjoyed your 165 mph Ferrari edition of ‘Gettin’ a lil’ psycho on tyres’ and that you’ll join me again tomorrow to look at the Austrian influence on a very British sports car. Don’t forget to come back now !
