Ferrari 330 GT 2+2
The 330 GT 2+2 evolved from the 250 GTE but was a significantly different Ferrari, with a 50 mm longer wheelbase chassis. The 330 GT 2+2’s single overhead camshaft motor was based on a stretched block but otherwise carried forward the refined and developed concepts of the Colombo-designed Ferrari V-12. The first series of 330 GT 2+2s adopted a four-headlight configuration with smaller driving lights placed inboard of the headlights in a tapered fender recess – a design element that was eventually replaced with a second series of single-headlight cars beginning in 1965.
