Lot 250: Ferrari 365 GT 2+2

Techno Classica, Coys (2 April 2011)

With the intention of competing in the worldwide luxury car market, Ferrari introduced the totally new 365 GT 2+2 at the Paris Salon in October 1967. It bore a strong resemblance to both the 330 GTC Special built for Belgium's Princess de Rethy and to the famous 500 Superfast. The car was a technical triumph. It was the first 2+2 Ferrari to have four wheel independent suspension, which also featured a hydro-pneumatic self levelling system. Power steering and air conditioning were standard, whilst excellent insulation from noise and vibration was achieved by stabilising the engine, gearbox and rear axle casing in one unit and mounting it all at four points on special rubber bushes. The engine itself was the new Type 245, with a displacement of 4.4 litres, single overhead camshafts and three Weber carburettors, producing 320bhp at 6,600rpm. And with such an output the car was indeed no slouch, being capable of 152mph and 0-60mph and 0-120mph in 7.2 and 26.2 seconds respectively. During its three year production life only 800 examples of the 365 GT 2+2 were built, yet it is regarded as one of Ferrari's most successful luxury models ever made. Its everlasting good looks, effortless performance and remarkable practicality make it an excellent choice for the Ferrari collector. This fine 365 was delivered new to Monaco and has had just five owners from new. According to the vendor the mighty V12 engine, gearbox, front drive train and brakes were rebuilt in 2008 and has covered just 5,000km since. 11293 is strikingly presented in the rare and period shade of Dino Brown with contrasting original leather interior. Re-sprayed in 2008, recent work includes wheel refurbishment with new spinners and fitment of the correct MX Michelin tyres. Complete with French title papers and French Controle Technique until 2012, this highly usable and practical, yet classic Ferrari, is surely an investment opportunity in the current market. Offered with a realistic reserve. Neu nach Monaco ausgeliefert, wurde dieser klassische Gran Turismo Ferrari im Jahre 2008 einer umfassenden Revision der Mechanik unterzogen und seither nur 5000 km bewegt. Zur gleichen Zeit wurde auch die Lackierung im originalen Farbton Dino-Braun erneuert und wird mit französichen Papieren angeboten.
