The Ferrari 275 was introduced in 1964 to replace the 250 GT SWB Berlinetta. It was given a 3,286cc Colombo V12 engine. Carozzeria Pininfarina designed the body for the 275 GTB. In December 1965 a revised 'muso longo' (long nose) body went on sale with increased downforce at speed. In October 1966 the GTB/4 was launched with 4-cam version of the engine giving up to 300bhp. Pininfarina also designed an open top version, the 275 GTS, but this had an entirely different body to the GTB and sold 200 from 1964 to 1966. An American importer commissioned a Spyder version of the 275 GTB which was designed and built by Scaglietti but only ten of these NART Spyders were completed. There were competition versions to, the 275 GTB/C, but only a few were made.
