By the end of the 1950s, the market for sports cars with ‘family accommodation’ had grown sufficiently for Ferrari to contemplate the introduction of a four-seater model. Introduced in the summer of 1960, the first such Ferrari - the 250GTE 2+2 - was based on the highly successful 250GT. Pininfarina’s brief had been to produce a 2+2 without sacrificing the 250’s elegant good looks or sporting characteristics, and the master carrozzier succeeded brilliantly with the GTE. By moving the engine, gearbox, and steering gear forward and the fuel tank back, sufficient room was created for two occasional rear seats within the 250GT’s 2600mm wheelbase.

The 250GTE provided the basis for its replacement: the 330GT 2+2 introduced in January 1964. Pininfarina was once again entrusted with the styling, adopting of a four-headlamp frontal treatment, reflecting the tastes of Ferrari’s most important export market, the USA. The 330GT’s tubular chassis was 50mm longer in the wheelbase than before, which made conditions less cramped for the rear passengers. Suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs, while at the back there was a live axle/semi-elliptic set-up. Improvements to the discs-all-round braking system saw separate hydraulic circuits adopted for front and rear.

The 330GT’s Colombo-type, 60-degree, V12 engine had first appeared in the 330 America (effectively a big-bore 250GTE 2+2) in 1963. Displacing 3,967cc, the single-overhead-camshaft, all-alloy unit was good for 300-plus bhp, an output sufficient to propel the 330GT to a maximum velocity of 152mph, making it the fastest road-going Ferrari when introduced. Equipped at first with a four-speeds-plus-overdrive gearbox, the 330GT gained a five-speed transmission in mid-1965 and later that year had its four-headlight front end replaced by a two-lamp arrangement.

Supplied new in Switzerland on 9th November 1964, chassis number ‘6219’ has been personally autographed by the great Sergio Pininfarina himself. The car was purchased in Geneva by the current owner in October 2007 and since then has been kept garaged at his home in Spain, covering fewer than 150 kilometres in the past 14 months. Benefiting from a recent engine service, ‘6219’ has covered only 80,881 kilometres from new and is presented in ‘perfect’ condition. Offered with Ferrari wallet, service booklet and Swiss Carte Grise, this lovely 330GT represents a rare opportunity to acquire an original example of this most practical Ferrari Grand Routier.
