Evolving out of the 250 GTE, the 330 GT 2+2 was a significantly different Ferrari. The 330 GT 2+2’s single overhead camshaft V-12 was based on a stretched block but otherwise carried forward the refined and developed concepts of the Colombo-designed Ferrari engine, which was rated at 300 brake horsepower at 6,600 rpm. The longer engine block was accommodated in a chassis 50 millimetres longer than the preceding 250 GTE.
The first series 330 GT 2+2s adopted a four-headlight configuration, with smaller driving lights placed inboard of the headlights in a tapered fender recess. The concept, borrowed from American styling themes of the era, was timely but not exceptionally successful, and the Series I 330 GT 2+2 was soon succeeded by a single headlight Series II version that looked much more refined and purposeful.
Our spectacular 330 GT Series II is offered in a desirable deep Midnight Blue with contrasting Mushroom Grey leather. Optioned with the spectacular Borrani chrome and alloy wire wheels and comfort features like electrically operated windows.
Appearing to have lived a relatively sheltered life, this remarkable 330 GT had found its way to North America in the 70s and was offered for sale in New York in 1977. Come 1982, it was offered for sale again in New Hampshire and the subsequent owner cherished the Ferrari for the next 20 years.
Emerging later the 330 GT was subject to a compreshesive restoration by the now European owner, carried out in his dedicated in-house restoration facility and prepared exquisitely for display in his private museum. During the restoration, the decision was made to improve the colour combination to a highly attractive deep blue finish, alongside a beautifully finished contrasting interior.
On the road this exceptional ’60s grand tourer is on the button. We can confirm it is as fabulous to drive, as it is to look at with that charismatic 300 bhp V-12 running superbly. As you would expect from such a prestigious make of automobile, our Ferrari 330 GT is a matching numbers car.
