Few motor cars in the world possess such intrinsic desirability that their
availability at auction sends shockwaves through the community of
automotive enthusiasts around the world; fewer still are so exceptionally
rare, fast, and achingly beautiful that they attain legendary status. These
select few motor cars, at the highest point on the capstone of the
collector car pyramid, represent the benchmark from which all superlatives
in automotive history are born. They are, quite inarguably, the most
important cars in the world.
Even within this exclusive group, 06701 stands out among its peers. Without
even considering its almost unbelievable rarity, its matching numbers, its
breathtaking design, or the pedigree of its family tree, it not only counts
the 250 GTO series among its brothers but, more immediately, the two other
275 GTB/C Speciales, successors to the GTO, neither of which are likely to
ever come up for sale and one of which holds a record that remains unbroken
at Le Mans after a half century!
THE GTO ’65
The era into which 06701 was born saw Ferrari not only dominate endurance
racing but experience a serious challenge from the American Ford-powered
teams in both the prototype and GT classes. The all-conquering 250 GTO had
won the GT class three years in a row, and Ferrari’s P-series of sports
prototype racing cars were exceptionally formidable as well, but Carroll
Shelby’s Cobra Daytonas and the persistent development of the Ford GT40
always had the gentlemen from Maranello looking in their rearview mirrors.
Ferrari knew it had a chance for victory in 1965 with a new
competition-ready version of its 275 GTB, which was to be released at the
Paris Motor Show in October of 1964. As the first Ferrari with an
independent rear suspension and a transaxle gearbox, it was a major
improvement over the outgoing 250-series and a superb evolution of the
front-engined 250 GTO.
During late 1964 and early 1965, Ferrari built three 275 GTB/C Speciales,
specifically for FIA homologation and factory development, each boasting
unique details from the standard 275 GTB/Cs that would follow. All were
fitted with super-lightweight aluminum bodywork, a Tipo 563 chassis
constructed of smaller and lighter tubes, and the type 213/Comp dry-sump
engine topped with six Weber carburetors first seen in the 250 LM, which
was mounted lower in the chassis to lower the car’s center of gravity.
This engine was specifically developed with big valves and cylinder heads,
like the 250 GTO or 250 LM, 9.7:1 compression ratio pistons, the already
well-tested Tipo 130 camshaft (10mm lift), and most of the auxiliary
casings made in magnesium. With 70 additional horsepower powering a
chassis that was lighter in all respects to the standard 275 GTB road car,
this was undoubtedly the most formidable weapon in Ferrari’s competition
arsenal. As Giancarlo Rosetti stated in his Forza article entitled
“Legend of the GTO ’65,” “while the GTB/C Speciales were built on
275 chassis and fitted with 3.3-liter motors, it’s easy to see where they
Completed in April 1965, chassis 06701, present here, was the first of the
three 275 GTB/C Speciales built. It uniquely hand built in all respects, as
were the two cars that followed. As per the build sheet, the car was
originally fitted with a 250 LM type Exhaust with side pipes. Its rear fender shared
a very similar profile with the ’64 250 GTOs, as did its front end, which
also bore some resemblance to that of a 330 LMB. For added ventilation to
the brakes, two oval slots were cut in the nose and another three vents
behind the rear wheels. Additionally, the car features an outside aluminum
fuel filler cap, specific to the 140-liter fuel tank, to allow for faster fueling during pit stops and a
stunningly sculpted air-intake on the hood. Inside, a pair of GTO-style
aluminum bucket seats holds both driver and passenger firmly in positive.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) Start Up, Exhaust, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
Deutsche Version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1a-p4G0N24
We had the chance to drive the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC
Coupe (C217)for two days in the surroundings of Pisa and Florence in Italy.
Here is our In Depth Review of the newest Mercedes-Benz S-Class creation,
the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG (V222). We enjoyed our test drive with the
2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (C217) , we hope you will like our
video review as well. Make sure you don't miss the Start Up and the Exhaust sound.
The new S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest dream car to augment the Mercedes-AMG
model range. Exciting lines underpin this two-door model's design.
Dominance and sensual purity combine to lend the vehicle irresistible
presence and effortlessly superior sportiness. Equally impressive is the
combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction
and groundbreaking efficiency. As the most powerful member of the
BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is a paragon of poise and assurance.
Boasting an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the S 63 AMG
Coupé delivers exceptional performance with remarkably low fuel
consumption. Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive is available
as an option. And there is a world first in the shape of the curve tilting
function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, to further
enhance both driving pleasure and comfort.

As with the transmission, customers also get a choice when it comes to the
AMG sports suspension: the rear-wheel-drive S 63 AMG Coupé is equipped
with MAGIC BODY CONTROL, while the all-wheel-drive version of the two-door
model features the full air-suspension system AIRMATIC with the adaptive
damping system ADS PLUS. Specific front axle kinematics -- including higher
camber, a larger anti-roll bar and a stiffer subframe carrier on the rear
axle -- have been developed exclusively for the S 63 AMG Coupé 4MATIC.
These measures enhance the vehicle's agility when driving dynamically.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 (S-Class) Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/s-class/2014/?id=32972 Mercedes says
their design goal for the S-Class is the “essence of luxury” and they
sure have hit the nail on the head. With a base price of $92,900 the S550
is reserved for those who can live the life of luxury. On the inside of
this luxury sedan there are high end materials everywhere. From the
perforated leather trim, to the 2-tone dash, to the warm wood; the interior
is a great place to spend time.
The driving experience is what you would expect from the luxury flagship
that is the Mercedes S-Class. Under the hood there is a 4.7 liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes 455 horsepower. Keep in mind
this is the entry level model. But cruising along in quite comfort and
luxury is the way to go.
