Lot 252: Ferrari 330 GT 2+2

Techno Classica, Coys (2 April 2011)

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. The 330 GT we are pleased to offer has been restored cosmetically and mechanically in 2009 and 2010 by the well known Ferrari dealership Scuderia - Auto - Neuser of Nuremberg Germany. Amongst other work done since then, a total of 28.000 has been spent on the car, copy invoices for this work are available in the cars file. The Ferrari is in excellent and in road ready condition, beautifully finished in white with a red leather interior and Borrani chrome spoke wheels. A most practically Ferrari 2+2 with German registration documents and elegant appearance.
