It was an important evolution of Ferrari's signature sports car that already had 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes, a 3.3-liter V12 and one of Pininfarina's best body designs.
The move to the quad cam engine was motivated by Ferruccio Lamborghini who spent a fortune making engines that were more radical than Ferrari.

Ferrari 275 GTB/4
The quad cam kept Ferrari on pace, but it could be argued that sales brochure figures were the primary beneficiary of the GTB/4’s introduction since any actual performance increase was slight.
In total, almost a thousand examples were made and only a handful of these were made with aluminum bodies and even less were delivered as NART Spyders.
