Only 12 of these 275 GTB/C Berlinettas were built in 1966, and this is number six, finished in July. It was sold new to a private enthusiast who raced it extensively in Italy in 1966 and 1967, producing numerous GT class wins and high overall placings. The GTB/Cs were built using a lightweight frame, and they received a special 300 horsepower 3.3-liter V12 engine. They were sold to privateers such as Ecurie Francorchamps, Maranello Concessionaires, Scuderia Filipinetti, and the North American Racing Team. Among their accomplishments include class wins at Montlhéry, Nassau, Monza, and LeMans.

On April 6th of 1966, Ferrari sent the bare chassis of 09051 to Scaglietti to be clothed in lightweight alloy bodywork. The work was completed in July and is one of eight 275 GTB/C specified in left-hand drive. It left the factory finished in Argento Metallizzato (Silver Metallic) with black leather upholstery.

The car may have been intended for German Ferrari distributor Auto Becker, however it was sold to Renzo Sinibaldi of Rome. Mr. Sinibaldi raced the car at its inaugural outing at the 500 Kilometers of Mugello in July 1966. He shared driving duties with Grana which resulted in a 1st in Class finish and 7th overall. This race was followed by nine more races between July and October of 1966, placing 1st in Class seven times and capturing an overall win at the Tolentino-Colle Paterno Hillclimb. Due to these accomplishments, Sinibaldi placed third in the final standings for the 1966 Italian GT Championship.

The car was sold in October of 1966 to Gino di Russo, however it remained in Sinibaldi's hands, and he continued to race it throughout the 1967 season and into 1968. During this time he finished 1st in Class at the Trofeo Città di Orvieto.

The car was sold again in August of 1968 to Alberto Federici. Mr. Federici entered the car in the Trofeo Micangeli-Arezzo, the Catania-Etna Hillclimb, and the Trofeo Città di Orvieto, winning his class in all three events. In May of 1969, it was entered in the Targa Florio where it was driven by Federici and Domenico Lo Coco. It wore race number 114 and was running well until it was forced to retire due to an accident that damaged the nose.

The 1969 Targa Florio is the car's last recorded race entry. It did not qualify for the 1000 Kilometers of Monza in April 1970 and was retired from active use.

Vittorio Roveda of Watford, England acquired the car in 1971. He traded it in September to exotic car dealer Robert de la Rive Box for a 250 GTE. It was then sold via David Piper to David Flanagan of Liverpool, England. Mr. Flanagan entered the car in the 1974 Club Ferrari France Rallye at Pierre Bardinon's Mas du Clos.

In 1978, Martin and Ian Hilton purchased 09051. It remained with the brothers until 1993 when it was sold and exported to the United States, where it traded hands a few times before coming into the care of a private collector who owned for over a decade. In 2004, it was purchased by the current caretaker. In early 2007, it was given a show-quality restoration and was refinished in its 1966 livery.

The car was shown in August of 2007 at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it was displayed in the Class M-2 for Ferrari competition cars. There, the 275 GTB/C scored 99 points and was awarded a Second in Class trophy.

In 2013, the car was given another restoration. The current owner has spent over $800,000 on restoration work while the car has been in his care.
