It was developed by the Ferrari Corse Clientie department to both meet racing regulations and the rigors of track driving. The 575 GTC features a 65-degree V12 with 605-horsepower and a sequential-shift transmission. To comply with race guidelines, it has a wider track. There are also larger composite brakes by Brembo that improve braking response.
This marked the fourth time Ferrari used their fiber-reinforced silicon carbide brakes with the first three appearances happening on the Challenge Stradale, F430, and Enzo. It uses 15.7-inch discs with six-piston calipers in front and 14.2-inch discs with four-piston calipers in the rear.
There is a tubular steel chassis with boxed sections and wishbone suspension with adjustable anti-dive geometry. This performance-tuned suspension helps make the Ferrari 575 GTC an ideal car for racing on the track. There’s also a low-restriction exhaust and 19-inch wheels. The most noticeable feature on the car is the split rear wing, which was the result of aerodynamic research in a wind tunnel. In short, this car must be a life-altering experience to drive.
