Ferrari 330 GTC
First appearing at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, the 330 Gran Turismo Coupe was a blend of several models that preceded it. Essentially mating the chassis of a 275 GTB with the engine of a 330 2+2, the GTC’s body featured a tail derived from the 275 GTS and a front end similar to the 400 Superamerica. Though its grand touring cabin was more refined than its predecessor, the 330 GTC still delivered trademark Ferrari performance, prompting The Motor magazine to compare its handling to that of a racecar.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in May of 2011 at the Spazio Villa Erba, Cernobbio, Como, in August of 2011 at the Portola Hotel & Spa and Monterey Conference Center, Monterey, California and in October of 2011 at the Battersea Evolution, London.
