1966 Ferrari 330GT – Series 2
Manufactured at the same time as the 275 GTB and 330 GTC, the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 had all the motoring attributes of the large 4-litre V12 yet with the practicality of a 4-seater GT tourer
When the 330GT was launched, they were mostly sold to private collections of the most significant and affluent Ferrari owners; John Lennon, Prince Bernhard and even Mr Enzo Ferrari himself were known owners.
The early Series I vehicles had the distinctive four headlight configuration, which was perceived by some to be unattractive or ‘cross-eyed’. This design was soon reconfigured under the pen of Tom Singlur to reveal a subliminally attractive new front end and upgraded 5-speed gearbox which eradicated the need for the previously used overdrive unit.
The 300bhp Colombo engine was adorned with triple Weber 40DCZ/6 carburettors and this combination took the vehicle from 0-100km in just 6.3 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars of the mid-sixties era.
Here in the showroom we offer this exceptionally original and sought after Series II example, finished in arguably the most famous of all Ferrari colour Rosso with Nero Franzi interior, a rare leather option with higher gloss than the standard type.
The interior is in excellent condition, the leather remains supple and free of any rips or tears, the headlining is excellent, the dashboard is crack free and houses all the original instruments. The vehicle features functional air conditioning and factory ordered Borrani wire wheels complete with its original spare.
Mechanically the car is in excellent condition throughout, with the last careful custodian driving the car each weekend in central London. Maintained at the UK’s leading Ferrari specialist ‘GTO Engineering’ and with recent servicing invoices totalling some £10,000, this is a turn key V12 Ferrari that performs exceptionally.
The car has been inspected by Ferrari aficionado Maranello Ferrari and has been confirmed matching numbers.
