The 330 GT was introduced as a replacement for the 250 GTE which had been Ferrari’s first serious production model to offer a four-seat cockpit arrangement. Two versions were constructed between 1964 & 1967; the appropriately titled Series I and II. 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 on to a top speed of 150mph.
The final series of the 330GT is known as the “Series 2” which features a five-speed gearbox instead of the overdrive four-speed of the earlier models. Other changes included the switch back to a twin headlight instead of a four headlight configuration. The other improvements introduced to the Series 2 cars were redesigned turn signals, the fuel filler was moved from the right side to the left side and the slotted side air vents were changed to a three piece scoop design, with the most important changes being the 2 mount positioning for the engine and “hanging pedals”.
