Completed in April 1965, chassis 06701, present here, was the first of the three 275 GTB/C Speciales built. It was uniquely hand-built in all respects, as were the two cars that followed. As per the build sheet, the car was originally fitted with a 250 LM type exhaust with side pipes. Its rear fender shared a very similar profile with the ’64 250 GTOs, as did its front end, which also bore some resemblance to that of a 330 LMB. For added ventilation to the brakes, two oval slots were cut in the nose and another three vents behind the rear wheels. Additionally, the car features an outside aluminum fuel filler cap, specific to the 140-liter fuel tank, to allow for faster fueling during pit stops and a stunningly sculpted air intake on the hood. Inside, a pair of GTO-style aluminum bucket seats holds both driver and passenger firmly in position.
