Ferrari 330 GTC
The 330 GTC had the reputation of being the best all around Ferrari. It exuded class not flash!
This model steered the Ferrari look into elegance, a smooth handling ride and luxury combined with comfort inside the interior accommodations.
The Ferrari 330 GTC was the descendant of the 250 and stands between the 275 GTB Berlinetta, whose chassis is shared, and with the 330 2+2 Coupe that exhibited a sharper nose and tail, quad headlights, and a wide grille, which is where the attainment of it's 4-litre V12 engine came from.
This was truly an ingeniously clever performing machine with an aura of style and grace. Much development went into creating the cabin, giving it limited road noise along with highly-developed suspension, making the perfected Ferrari 330 GTC an enjoyable excursionist. Standard equipment included, leather seats, electric windows and heated rear screen. Radio, air conditioning and Borrani wire wheels were optional features.
Under the hood was a 4.0-liter, two-cam, 60-degree V12 with 300 horsepower and the same engine could be found in the 330GT 2+2. The engine package rode 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 the means of wishbones and coil springs. The five-speed gearbox was incorporated into the rear suspension in a trans-axle, similar to the design introduced on the road traveling Ferrari 275GTB in 1964.
Te 330 GTC was presented at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show and was an instant success! Pininfarina's exceedingly elegant bodywork resembled the 500 Superfast at the front and the 275 GTS at the rear. The 330 GTC stayed in production until the end of 1968, and approximately 600 were built.
