The 330 GT 2+2 was launched at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1964 as an intended replacement for the successful 250 GTE. It was powered by the 209 engine previously used in the 400 Superamerica, which with various improvements but slight detuning now yielded around 330bhp.
The wheelbase was about two inches longer than that of the 250, and Koni adjustable shock absorbers were fitted as standard. The bodywork of the 330 was altogether ‘sweeter’ and more essential than that of its predecessor, and had a particularly attractive sharpness of line. The car was also spacious and comfortable, living up well to its ‘GT’ denomination.
Paul Frere, the noted Belgian racing driver and automotive journalist, road tested a 2+2 late in 1966. He came away suitably impressed: “In handling, this car is exactly like all Ferraris which I have driven before … It is close to being as neutral as one could want… But the most impressive feature of the handling of the 330 is the solidness with which it changes direction, particularly in s-bends, where it tracks with about the same precision as a modern race car.”
This lovely example is presented in stunning black with tan hide interior. Being the late Series III model, it has the attractive single headlight specification.
These iconic Italian sports cars are much sought after, and this 2+2 is no exception. A left hand drive example which comes with a US Title and set on Borrani wire wheels, retains its original engine and gearbox. These Ferraris were the envy of many in the 1960s, and remain so to this day. Not to be missed.
