1966 Ferrari 330 GTC

The Ferrari 330 GTC Berlinetta was intended to fill the gap between the four-seater 330GT 2+2 and the road-going racing-machine, the 275 GTB. The 330 GTC was debuted at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show and was basically as 275GTS with a closed body. The front was inspired by the 500 Superfast while the rear was similar to the 275 GTS. Under the bonnet lurked a 4.0-liter, two-cam, 60-degree V12 with 300 horsepower at its disposal. The same engine could be found in the 330GT 2+2. The engine package rested on a wheelbase that measured a short 94.5-inches comprised of oval-section main tubes in a steel space frame. The suspension was independent in the front and rear by means of wishbones and coil springs. The five-speed gearbox was incorporated into the rear suspension in a transaxle, similar to the design introduced on the road-going Ferrari 275GTB in 1964.

This was a sophisticated performance machine with plenty of power and ambiance. The interior had limited road noise as much development work had gone into making this a very refined and enjoyable tourer. It was well equipped with leather seats, electric windows and heated rear screen as standard equipment. Radio, air conditioning and Borrani wire wheels were offered as options. The sophisticated suspension provided a very comfortable ride and the potent powerplant responded well to the driver's wishes and demands.

Top speed was over 150 mph; it was a sports car that had seating for two people plus room for their luggage.

The Ferrari 330 series belonged to a long line of Ferrari road cars with front-mounted V12 engines, cars that were members of a bloodline whose history is still being written by the 612 Scaglietti and 599 GTB Fiorano. The 330s name derived from the then-familiar Ferrari practice of naming cars for their per-cylinder displacement in cubic centimeters, indicating that the engines used to power this....
