The competition for "king of sports cars" credentials is as always very intense. It's a constant game of one-upmanship with Ferrari and Porsche key players.

The battle, however, has just been escalated to a higher level. The phrase, 'take it to the track' can easily be used with the introduction of the 360 GTC, Ferrari's newest non-street legal entry in to the FIA n-GT championships.

But the new GTC is hardly about collecting, it's about racing. More recently at Frankfurt's IAA, Ferrari launched its 575 GTC to go up against the Lamborghini Murciélago R-GT, and others in the FIA's GT championship. It was only natural that a 360 Challenge Stradale based GTC would follow in the larger car's tire treads to fight in the lower GT class. With help from Michelotto Automobili, the FIA-regulation GTC was created. Both GTC cars will be sold by Ferrari's customer sports racing division Corsa Cliente, for private teams.
