2003 575 GTC

Press release:

"The 'C' in the name stands for 'competizione'.

The 575 GTC is the racing version of the 575M Maranello. In order to cope with the demands of the track, it is equipped with even more technological advances than the superb road version.

The displacement of the 65° V12 has been increased to 5,997cc with a maximum power output of close to 605 bhp, and the car boasts a sequential shift. The track has been widened, the brakes increased in size and, thanks to the use of composite materials, the body has been lightened. The tubular steel chassis features boxed sections and the all-round wishbone suspension features adjustable antidive geometry.

The car has a split rear wing with a nolder. This set up is the fruit of extensive aerodynamic research in the wind tunnel, something that was also carried out for the adjustable front spoiler and the undertray with its rear extractor."

One might think that 575 GTCs should be more competitive than the 550 Maranellos, but they haven't been as fast and reliable as them. 550s and 575s are raced in the FIA GT Championship.

2004 575 GTC











Revised 2005 575 GTC

press release:

"After two years of the 575 GTC competing in FIA GT, the Ferrari Corse Clienti department made changes to the original version with the collaboration of the technical GT head, Maurizio Nardon. The aerodynamics were completely revised with the addition of a new splitter and air intake on the modified bonnet. These changes improve internal air flow. The engine has been totally redesigned and, together with the new cooling tank, resulted in greater power and better handling. The current torque curve guarantees improved power management and the work on the steering column means that the new car is easier to point into curves and performs more smoothly when in them."

Here is the 2005 575 GTC









Risi Competizione could race a 575 GTC in the American Le Mans Series, but they don't.

Here is the Ferrari 575 GTC of JMB Racing from the 73rd running (2005) of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It didn't finish the race.

This 575 GTC competed in the 2004 12 Hours of Sebring, but it had a suspension failure and didn't finish the race.
