This Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 is no longer available. Please contact us for any further information you may require.
The 330 GT was introduced as a replacement for the 250 GTE which had been Ferrari's first series production model to offer a four-seat cockpit arrangement.
Two versions were constructed between 1964 and '67; the appropriately titled Series I and II. Produced alongside the sultry 275 GTB and exclusive 500 Superfast, the 330 GT was designed as a more comfortable and less demanding vehicle to drive. The Tipo 571 chassis frame was in many ways a close development of the frame used for the outgoing 250 GTE. A number of important revisions were made including a 50mm wheelbase extension, the shift from 4-speed to 5-speed manual transmission and the inclusion of adjustable Koni shock absorbers. The Tipo 209 V12 engine developed from the enormously impressive Colombo line that dated back to 1947, the 330 GT engine had a displacement of 3967cc which helped equate to a very healthy 300bhp at 6600rpm, enough to propel the 330 GT from zero to sixty in just 6.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 150mph.
Penned by Pininfarina, the second series 330 GT 2+2 moved away from the first series’ ‘Chinese Eye’ to the more favourable and desirable single headlamps on each side.
This example was supplied new in Bianco over Rosso, a particularly bold choice no doubt for a large Ferrari 2+2 in 1966 but perhaps a little more fitting, supplied new by means of direct sale from the factory to Mr Redman in South Africa. Arriving in the UK in 1988, the car was purchased from the warmer climates, at that time refinished in Rosso over Nero.
From its time in the UK, the file is extensive. Each and every MOT from its arrival accompanies the car in it’s comprehensive history file. Since the car arrived, each of the previous keepers has been documented in the file.
The car was imported to the UK and registered on 14th October 1988 by Pattishall Properties of Northampton, a property company still registered to this day. They would keep the car until 1994 when it was sold to its second keeper in London, Mr Jankowski of London. The car would pass through a couple of owners, including the purchase-sale-repurchase by one owner before being acquired by Mr Samengo-Turner in February 1998 from marque specialists, Furlonger Cars.
After a pre-purchase inspection by Neal Lucas, all subsequent service work in his ownership would be carried out by Lucas. Many invoices on files, the car saw regular maintenance over his 16 year ownership. In 2013, the file documents the bare metal respray carried out by Samengo-Turner, from Rosso to Blu Scuro, retaining the Nero interior. Photographs from this colour change are all included in the file.
Selling the car the following year, once more through Furlonger Cars, this example was sold to Mr McAlpine. From this point we were introduced to the car, carrying out servicing work for McAlpine from 2015 to 2018 to the tune of tens of thousands in the three-year period. During McAlpine’s ownership, the car was sent to interior and audio specialists, AutoAudio London for a retrim in Beige 4208 as it presents today.
After completion of the interior works, the car was awarded Ferrari Red Book Classiche Certification which accompanies the car today.
Acquired by the current owner in February 2019, this car has since seen regular exercise and has recently featured in a SupercarDriver video review alongside its modern GTC4 Lusso equivalent.
This excellent motorcar is ready to be used and enjoyed. It is available to view along with its history file and Classiche Certification immediately, in our showrooms just outside London.
