Many years ago, a car debuted at the 1966 Geneva auto show. Enzo Ferrari wanted a model that would fit between his sporty 275 GTB and the touring-oriented 330 GT 2+2. He called on his preferred automotive clothier, Pininfarina. Thus was born the 330 GTC. It combines the chassis of the 275 GTB with the engine of the 330 GT in an experience that is nothing short of remarkable. The comfortable yet sporty design makes car lovers of all kinds smile.
Sergio Pininfarina and his brother-in-law Renzo Carli crated the elegant design, pulling from many successful elements of past designs. For example, the nose is modeled after the 500 Superfast while other features come from the two parent cars. They combine to give the 330 GTC its elegant style with speed of traditional Italian automobiles.
Later, Ferrari decided to go topless. Come on, you know what we mean. Following release of the 330 GTC, he unveiled the open-air variant, the exclusive GTS spider. It features a fully independent suspension, four-wheel Girling disc brakes, and a rigid torque-tube driveline. Want more? Sure! It also boasts a five-speed transaxle and Campagnolo alloy wheels. Under the sleek hood is Ferrair’s famous four-liter, twin cam V-12 engine. It delivers a genuine 300 bhp at 6,600 rpm to answer the call of its driver. These top-notch components combine to deliver a blend of power that propels the car to 150 mph. It its time, the 330 GTS was one of the fastest open two-seat sports cars.
This car is more than just an attractive set of wheels. It has a story that is sad and twisted. Originally purchased in 1967, it lived in France with owner Warren Heller until 1981 when it was stolen. Two years later it appeared in Southern Florida after being sold to an unexpecting buyer. It was later recovered and by 1994, after more than a decade, was returned to its owner. In 1999 it was passed on and got new paint. It was given the deep red color that it wears today.
Now, the car shows only 33,750 kilometers. Still, it has been kept in pristine condition. Inside, the factory-installed air conditioning system is still present and functional. The original black interior is complimented by a fine wood veneer dash trim and classic white on black Veglia instruments. A three-spoke wood steering wheel guides the driver down the road with style and precision. If the open air isn’t satisfying, a complimentary black soft-top covers the interior.
Every part of this car shows the incredible craftsmanship of the Ferrari line. Despite its turmoiled history, it has a Ferrari Classiche certification, service receipts, and manuals. Out of just 100 examples produced, this 71st car is rare, powerful, and stunningly beautiful. Learn More
