The characteristic front engine-bay vents of the 275 GTB are an evident styling cue, as is the adoption of the
triple louvres in the three-quarter panel in place of the F12berlinetta’s B-post quarterlights. The louvres on the
rear bumper, together with the pronounced nolder on the tail and milled aluminium fuel filler cap, recall instead
the special competition-developed 275 GTB (chassis number 06885) that won the GT category in the 1965 Le
Mans 24 Hour race, coming home an impressive third overall behind the winning 250 LM. The yellow paint
scheme is also a tribute to that 275 GTB, echoing its Ecurie Francorchamps team colour.
The front features a closed perimeter Ferrari grille with a prominent yet smoothly integrated bonnet bulge,
while the slim, vertically-stacked headlights and forged 20” alloys are unique to this car.

Note from Keith Bluemel
The latest example to leave the department, the SP275RW Competizione, chassis # 223542, which is a
spectacular F12 based modern homage to the 275 GTB/C Speciale, chassis # 06885, which finished 3rd at
Le Mans in 1965.
The SP in the model title stands for Special Project.
The RW in the model title are the initials of the owner, Dr Rick Workman, who commissioned the project.
