The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was a four-seat touring car that had evolved from the 250 GTE. It was given a 50 mm longer wheelbase chassis and a slightly wider track. Under the bonnet was a Tipo 209 Colombo V12 engine that displaced four liters and offered 300 brake horsepower. It was a stylish car that offered luxury and performance, and a top speed approaching 240 kilometers per hour.
The individual responsible for the styling of the 330 GT 2+2 was American Tom Tjaarda, who had been recruited from Ghia to Pininfarina in 1960.
The first series of the 330 GT 2+2 featured a four-headlight configuration, with smaller driving lights placed inboard of the headlights in a tapered fender recess. This design was eventually replaced with a second series of single-headlight cars beginning in 1965.
This Series I 330 GT 2+2 is a left-hand drive car that was given a cosmetic restoration in 2000. It has been used lightly since that time. It is fitted with Borrani wire wheels, is painted in red and has a black interior. It is one of just 500 Series 1 four-headlight models.
In 2009, this 2+2 Coupe was offered for sale at the Sports & Classics of Monterey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $65,000 - $85,000 and offered without reserve. As the gavel fell for the third and final time, the lot had been sold for the sum of $55,000, including buyer's premium.
