The 330 GT was introduced as a replacement for the 250 GTE which had been Ferrari’s first series production model to offer a four-seat cockpit arrangement. Produced alongside the sultry 275 GTB and exclusive 500 Superfast; the 330 GT was designed as a more comfortable and less demanding vehicle to drive. The Tipo 571 chassis frame was in many ways a close development of the frame used for the outgoing 250 GTE. A number of important revisions were made including a 50mm wheelbase extension and the inclusion of adjustable Koni shock absorbers.
The Tipo 209 V12 engine was developed from the enormously impressive Colombo line that dated back to 1947; the 330 GT engine has a displacement of 3967cc which helped equate to a very healthy 300bhp at 6600rpm, enough to propel the 330 GT from zero to sixty in just 6.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 150mph.The provisional 330 America was replaced in January 1964 by the new 330 GT 2+2. It was first shown at the Brussels Show, and was much more than a re-engined 250; however, with a sharper nose and tail, quad headlights, and a wide grille. The wheelbase was 50 mm (2.0 in) longer, but Koni adjustable shock absorbers improved handling. A dual-circuit Dunlop braking system was used with discs all around, though it separated brakes front to back rather than diagonally as on modern systems.
