Only four of these Ferrari 330 LM Berlinettas were built, and this car (serial number 4725 SA) is the only one with a competition history having finished fifth overall at Le Mans in 1963. After Le Mans, this car saw any further significant competition use with a final appearance at Brands Hatch for the Guards Trophy where it finished eighth overall and first in class. It is also the only right hand drive example of its type. Its performance comes from a four-liter V-12 engine delivering almost 400 horsepower at 7000 RPM. It was at Monza in April 1963 that the Ferrari 330 LM Berlinetta made its debut; it was presented to the press along with Ferrari's 250 P sports prototype.
The Ferrari 330 series was produced from 1963 through 1968. They were replacements for the Ferrari 250 GT 2+2 with many of the series retaining the style and mechanical components of their predecessors. The front-engined, rear-wheel drive vehicle were powered by a derivative of the 400 Superamerica's four-liter Colombo 12-cylinder engine.
The first in the series was the 330 America, which was actually a 250 with a new engine. During its production lifespan, lasting only a year, 50 examples were produced of the 2+2 sports car.
The 330 GT 2+2 was introduced to the public at the 1964 Brussels Motor Show, built as a replacement for the 330 America. The 330 GT 2+2 is unique in that it provided ample seating for four individuals plus luggage. These were the ultimate road-going, practical sports cars that could be used for every-day transportation. The 330 GT 2+2 was a new product, not just an engine modification. Under the hood was a Tipo 209, twelve-cylinder engine capable of producing 300 horsepower. Disc brake were placed on all four corners to provided the stopping power. The 1964 model used a four-speed manual gear box with overdrive. The 1965 version, known as the Series II, received a 5-speed manual gearbox. Other changes included alloy wheels, dual-light front clip, and optional power steering and air conditioning.
The 330 GT 2+2 was produced from 1963 through 1968. Around 1080 models were produced of the 330 GT with 50 of them being Type 330 GTE Americas.
The 330 was a replacement for the 275. The shortened wheelbase and independent rear suspension was courtesy of its predecessor. The GTC (Gran Turismo Coupe) Pininfarina designed vehicle was debuted in 1966 at the Geneva Auto Show. It had a V-12 engine mounted in the front that was capable of producing 300 horsepower. The five-speed manual gearbox was located in the rear transaxle.
The 330 GTS (Gran Turismo Spyder) was shown in October 1966 at the Paris Auto Show.
There were around 600 coupes and 100 spyders produced during the production lifespan. In 1968 they were replaced by the 365 GTC/4 Daytona.
