Ferrari 365 GT 2+2
Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1967, the 365 GT 2+2 was the largest and most luxurious Ferrari model to date, carrying forward the growing demand for high-speed transport with accommodation for up to four passengers. Designed and constructed by Pininfarina, it had a low-slung fastback design and was the first Ferrari to be equipped with standard power steering and power brakes. The 365 GT 2+2 was also the Modenese company’s first 2+2 with a self-leveling independent rear suspension.
The 4.4-liter single overhead camshaft V12 engine was fitted with three Weber carburetors and produced 320 horsepower. Such performance was combined with a luxurious interior to make a most impressive grand tourer. Plush leather, luxurious veneered trim panels, the last wood-rimmed steering wheel in a production Ferrari, air conditioning, a stereo, and standard power windows completed the interior appointments. By the time production ended in 1971, Ferrari had built approximately 800 365 GT 2+2s, accounting for half of Ferrari production in its three-year run.
