Ferrari discontinued production of the 250 GT Lusso in 1964, leaving the firm without an intermediate model to occupy the gap between Ferrari's flagship Berlinetta's (the 275 GTB) and their grand four-seater Coupe's (the 330 GT). Launched during March 1966 at the Geneva Salon, the 330 GTC was an immediate success with customers and road testers alike, successfully filling the gap in Ferraris range. The 4-litre 330's were available in two alternative body styles - Coupe (GTC) or Spyder (GTS). The 330 GTC frame was designated Tipo 592. These chassis's were outwardly very similar to those already used on Ferrari's 275 GTB being a traditional tubular steel chassis. Hydraulic disc brakes were fitted all-round along with fully independent suspension. Borrani's beautiful ten-hole cast alloy wheels were standard although spoked wheels from the same manufacturer were optionally available.

Engine-wise the GTC used Ferrari's twin cam four-litre Tipo 209/66 60° V12. Power was quoted by the factory as being 300bhp at 7000rpm with three twin choke Weber 40 carburettors. The engine was matched by a five-speed gearbox. Performance was impressive with a car reaching 0-60 in under 6.5 seconds whilst top speed was in excess of 150mph. Despite its mix of old and new features, the 330 GTC was quite simply among the best-looking GT's of its era. With a laid back style, it was never as confrontational as some of Ferrari's jaw-dropping berlinetta's - this was a car for the customer who neither desired nor required an attention-grabbing machine. Electric windows were fitted as standard along with a full leather interior and comfortably padded rather than figure hugging bucket seats. Air conditioning was an optional extra.

Having the majority of its life in Europe since new this 330 GTC was delivered to Mr Sante Pedini of Perugia, central Italy in December 1967. Signor Pedini used this exceptional car as much as possible and by the time the car, which was originally Oro Chiaro with Rosso, returned to Modena for its first year service it had already covered 21,000 kms! A real testament to how usable a car a 330 GTC is. Later the car sold to a Johann-Peter Rust and exported to Essen in Germany, in 1989 the car was repainted into Rosso Corsa with Tan leather, the colour combination that the car still has today. Rust owned the car until 1996 when the car was sold to England and was purchased by the English Ferrari collector Stuart Passey in a part restored state. Passey also owned at this time an alloy competition 250 GT SWB which DK had restored in the 1980s. Mr Passey completed the restoration of the car and it subsequently had another UK based owner before returning to Europe in 2005.

Today the car is presented in an excellent condition in Rosso Corsa with Tan leather, the paintwork and trim are in superb condition showing very little signs of wear, if any. Mechanically this on-the-button GTC needs nothing and will be supplied with a fresh service in the DK workshops. The car currently sits on Borrani wire wheels but can be converted to cast wheels should this be desired, a wonderful and unmolested matching numbers 330 GTC, this example is ready to be used and enjoyed at once.
