It wasn't long after the 330 GTC's introduction at 1966's Geneva Auto Show that the two-seat coupe had earned a reputation as the 'best all around' Ferrari - and with good reason. Its understated looks were classy and elegant, the steering light at most every speed, the interior comfortable, the ride superb, the engine ideal. It was truly a Ferrari one could use every day.
Pininfarina designed and built the GTC's steel body, which successfully blended the general design of the 275 GTS with the front-end treatment of the 500 Superfast. Car and Driver's one-word sum-up of the car's appearance: 'Class.'
Underneath was the 94.5-inch (2400 mm) chassis found on the 275 GTB and GTS. Under hood was the 300 horsepower 4.0-liter V-12 from the larger 330 2+2, but with a redesigned block. The gearbox was mounted at the rear, as on the 275 GTB, for better weight distribution. The GTC also had independent rear suspension.
This model was quite popular, with almost 600 made.
