Ferrari 275 GTB 6C

Ferrari 275 GTB 6C

The Ferrari 275 was a 2-seat front-engined Gran Turismo automobile produced by Ferrari between 1964 and 1968. It used a 3286 cc Colombo 60° V12 engine and produced 280-300 hp. The Pininfarina-designed body was a graceful evolution of the car's predecessor, the 250, and strongly contrasted with its replacement, the Daytona. The 275 introduced Ferrari's transaxle concept, where the transmission and rear axle are integrated.

For the 1965 racing season, 4 lightweight 275 GTB Competizione Speciales were built and equipped with 250 LM engines.

For the 1966 season, Ferrari decided to build 12 lightweight 275 GTB/C cars, they were constructed between the end of the 275 two-cam production run and the start of the 275 four-cam production run; even though they very much resembled the road-going 275 GTB, not one body panel was the same and underneath and very little of the road car remained.

Mauro Forghieri designed a special super-lightweight steel and aluminium version of the 275 GTB chassis. A regular suspension was fitted, but it was made slightly stiffer by the addition of extra springs. Scaglietti bodied the chassis with an ultra thin aluminum body; the panels were about half as thick as the ones used on the GTO; the entire rear section was reinforced by fibreglass to prevent it from flexing at the slightest impact. In all, this focus on saving weight made a difference of over 150 kg compared to the alloy bodied road cars.

Like the four Competizione Speciales, the 275 GTB/C was powered by the 250 LM engine. Specifically for the 275 GTB/C, Weber constructed the 40 DF13 carburetor of which three would replace the six 38 DCNs found on the 250 LM. The rest of the drivetrain was similar to the 275 GTB, but strengthened slightly.

Two of the twelve built were sold for street use. Unlike the race cars, these street cars were fitted with alloy wheels shod with Pirelli tires. Competition cars were fitted with special Borrani wire wheels, shod with Dunlop's latest racing tires. After the 275 GTB/C, no competition Ferrari would be fitted with wire wheels again.

A British-entered 275 GTB/C finished 8th overall, gaining class victory in the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Fort Dunlop is one of the most spectacular surviving monuments to Birmingham's industrial history.
Urban Splash made a ?40 million redevelopment scheme to make a significant improvement on the original.

Built in 1916, the building was used to store tyres made on the site by the world famous Dunlop rubber company. At its peak, 10,000 workers toiled at Fort Dunlop. An entire village, locally known as ‘Tyretown’, developed around the site to meet the worker’s needs, including shops, a cinema, concert hall and a sports club.

The windows, many of which were in poor condition, have been removed along with various poor-quality extensions. A new glass wall has been set back from the former window openings on each of the five floors, creating a kind of external promenade which provides routing for services and makes the job of window cleaners on this massive building literally a stroll.

Though the project is huge, the architectural concepts are strikingly bold and simple. The 100-bedroom Travelodge hotel is conceived as an extension to the eastern end, where the original facade has been replaced by a glazed wall.
The new block is distinguished by being painted bright blue
