In July 1966, the Ferrari factory received an order from SAVAF for a 275 GTB Competizione, later specified to be chassis no. 09079. Late in the specialty model's limited run, the car was the penultimate example of the thinly aluminum-skinned competition GTB, making it the second-to-last GT car ever produced by Maranello's factory competition department.
In October 2014, chassis no. 09079 enjoyed the distinguished privilege of being invited by Ferrari to take part in Driving Through the Decades, the 60th Anniversary celebration of Ferrari North America held in Beverly Hills, California. The Competizione was one of just sixty special Ferraris from across America chosen for display on the Sunday morning concours on Rodeo Drive, a rare honor and indication of just how significant the car is among Ferrari's greatest motorcars. The 275 GTB/C was also featured in a recent issue of Octane magazine in a rollicking article penned by noted journalist and esteemed Pebble Beach judge Winston Goodfellow.
