A year after its introduction the 275 GTB underwent a facelift, which was again shown for the first time at the Paris Salon. The most noticeable revision is a new longer slimmer front, with a flat bonnet replacing the lightly raised centre section unit. The size of the rear window is also increased, and the boot lid hinges are external to increase its capacity.
The last 125 cars of the 330 GT 2+2 were fitted with a 5-speed gearbox, before they were replaced by the series II with dual headlights around the middle of this year.

275 LM vs 166 Dino at Nürburgring.

The controversial 275LM seems to have been suspended for a while and all production efforts have gone into the front-engined 275GTB Berlinetta. It is produced in two forms, touring and competition, the main difference being that the touring one has a steel body and the competition one an aluminium body, and at Sergio Scaglietti's body-building works there is a long production line with anything up to 25 or 30 cars completed and on their way to Maranello to receive the engines and gearboxes, any time you call in. Many years ago Ferrari made it clear that the number in front of any model designation was the capacity in c.c. of one cylinder of the engine, e.g., 250GT was a 12-cylinder 3,000 c.c. When he started building the mid-engined LM coupe (Le Mans) it had a 3,000-c.c. engine, so the car was called 250LM, but later the engine was enlarged to 3,300 c.c., so the name should have been 275LM. However, at the time he was trying to convince the F.I.A. that he had built 100 examples of this car, and he was having trouble proving more than 20 or 30, so he insisted that they were all the same and called 250LM, hoping that people would forget that the first half-dozen or so were 3-litres and not 3.3-litres.

The two prototype Ferrari cars at the Le Mans test day were not only very fast but absolutely reliable and beautifully finished. This view of the 275P/2 shows the aerofoil deflector behind the cockpit, the central hump covering the six Weber carburetters, and the well finished tail incorporating a spoiler.

Another mechanical advent of recent weeks that might well set a new standard was the appearance of the Ferrari Dino 166 in Prototype GT form. Its performance at the Nurburgring was outstanding. The basic idea behind the Dino is that it will be put into production by Fiat so that vast numbers can be built and thus the engine will be homologated for use in the proposed new Formula Two. It is in effect an early 1961 Ferrari Grand Prix car with a 2-seater coupe body. The chassis is a tubular space frame and suspension is almost identical to the current Grand Prix cars. The engine is a 65-degree V6 of 77 x57 mm. bore and stroke, giving 1,592 c.c., and it has four overhead camshafts, and with a 9.8-to-1 compression it is said to give 190 b.h.p. at 9,00o r.p.m., running on petrol. This engine is in unit with a 5-speed gearbox and the whole assembly is mounted behind the cockpit, as in a G.P. car, while there are disc brakes mounted inboard at the rear, and normally at the front. Most GT type engines of 1,600 c.c. are lucky to develop 150 b.h.p., so it is not surprising that the Dino 166 makes them all look obsolete and even causes trouble to 2-litre Prototype cars.
