FERRARI 575 GTC – LIVING IN BIG BROTHER’S SHADOW

When it came to creating the Ferrari 575 GTC, the track-tuned version of the 575 Maranello, the Italian automaker wanted to be closely involved in the process. While that might sound intuitive, Ferrari had actually farmed out the design and production of their previous GT racer, the 550 GTS, so they had a decision to make when it came time for the successor. Because the 550 had performed so well, taking first place in the 2003 FIA GT Championship, the carmaker decided to take the design of their new GT racer in-house. What resulted was the Ferrari 575 GTC, which first put its wheels on a track in 2003. Even though it wouldn’t enjoy the same success as the 550 version, the 575 would see impressive results nonetheless.

From a purely aesthetic standpoint, the GTC is a stunner. With the handsome 575 Maranello as a base, the designers used extensive wind tunnel testing to aid in the placement of the various vents and the large rear wing. Under that big, scooped bonnet resides an enlarged version of the 5.7-litre V12 from the production version of the 575. Thanks to its now 6.0-litre displacement, as well as a host of other upgrades, the mighty twelve-cylinder now produced 605 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque, both significant improvements over the standard 575 Maranello’s 515 and 588, respectively. While the design was completed by Ferrari themselves, the 575 GTC was actually assembled by the Italian racing team N.Technology.

When it came time to put rubber to the track, things started off brilliantly, with the 575 GTS coming in first in its inaugural GT race in Portugal. Ironically, however, over the course of the year, the 575 GTC couldn’t quite keep pace with its more-reliable predecessor, with a 550 GTS taking home top honours in the 2004 FIA GT Championship. Still, a second- and third-place finish for the 575 GTC is nothing to complain about. The 2005 season saw the 575 take 5th place, with the Maserati MC12 GT1 taking home first and second places.
