Description

Many Ferraristi have described the 330 GT/C, as “the best all round V12” as it is a car with poise, performance and practicality, and it’s rivalled by few others. When the 330 GT/C was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1966, exactly 50 years ago, it received unanimous acclaim from the public and motoring journalists alike. Its 4-litre V 12 produced 300bhp at 7,000rpm, and this was sufficient for a 0-60mph time of just over 6 seconds with a top speed of around 150mph. With stump-pulling torque to match, these figures are still impressive today, let alone 50 years ago. With coachwork designed and built by Pininfarina, the 330 GT/C borrowed its nose treatment from the 500 Superfast and its tail end styling from the 275 GTS, with the end result being a beautiful, superbly balanced overall design.

The car offered here is a European model, delivered new to its first owner Heinz-Dieter Blatzheim, a racing driver and collector (well known in Germany for 906, 907 and 917 Porsches). Featured in Karl Hans Lange’s FERRARI book, its German registration number was SU-Z 548. The car later went to the famous Hans Dürst collection in Switzerland. (In 1998 Coys offered the entire collection for sale at auction in 1998 at the Swiss Klausen Race.) While in this major collection the car benefitted from utmost care and maintenance.

Since being purchased by a British (predominantly Ferrari) collector, the 330 GT/C has been garaged in a purpose built building with a full time mechanic, and it has retained its superb condition and very attractive patina. Ferrari 11137 was then sold again by Coys at their ’05 Monaco auction, and for the past 10 years it’s been within the collection of the now German-based owner/vendor. During his ownership the car has been sympathetically partly restored, cosmetically and mechanically as necessary, and it’s been resprayed in its original Rosso Rubino (Ruby Red) colour. Sitting on Borrani wheels and again road-registered in Germany with TÜV to May 2016, this most sought-after historic Ferrari now awaits its next lucky owner.

Dieser fantastische 330 GT/C ist eine deutsche Auslieferung von Auto Becker, Düsseldorf an den Rennfahrer und Sammler Heinz-Dieter Blatzheim ( Porsche 906/907/917 ). 11137 ist in Karl Hans Lange`s Buch FERRARI mit deutschen Kennzeichen SU – Z 548 abgebildet.

Von dort aus gelangte er später in die Sammlung von Hans Dürst in die Schweiz und wurde schließlich im Jahr 1998 durch COYS anläßlich der Versteigerung der Hans Dürst Sammlung am Klausen – Rennen an eine bedeutende britische Sammlung verkauft. Dort verblieb er bis 2005, wo er widerum von COYS an der Monaco Auktion ,, Legende et Passion ,, versteigert wurde. Nunmehr seit 10 Jahren in Händen eines deutschen Sammlers erfuhr dieser historische Ferrari eine kosmetische Restaurierung, welche auch eine Lackierung in der originalen Farbe rosso rubino enthielt. Der GT/C erhielt außerdem Borrani Speichenräder und besitzt jetzt deutsche Strassenpapiere sowie TÜV bis 05/2016.

Dieser seit über 40 Jahren nur in bedeutenden Sammlungen verbliebene Ferrari 330 GT/C bietet mit Sicherheit eine seltene Chance für den Enthusiasten und Sammler einen der legendärsten klassischen  Ferrari zu erwerben.
