When the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was launched in 1964, Ferrari had become well known as a successful brand in the racing world. With this new model, Ferrari aimed for a more accessible, quieter and comfortable Grand Tourer vehicle that would bring them fame on the street. The new car was introduced at the annual Ferrari pre-season competition press conference and was the successor to the Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2. Approximately 625 examples of the Series I were made, including 125 interim cars, and 455 examples of the Series II 330 GT 2+2 cars had been sold when the car was replaced by the Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 in 1967. The production of the smaller and sportier Ferrari 330 GTC and GTS (Spyder) models overlapped with the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 for more than a year.
Like its predecessor, Pininfarina designed the body of the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2. With a twin headlight arrangement, the look of the car was very modern at the time and right in the trend with what was going on in the American market. The general bodylines were quite different from the Ferrari 250 and 275 series, however, with rounder and smoother shapes, apart from the angular headlight, and a rounded tail giving extra space in the boot with horizontal rectangular one-piece rear light component that curved around the edges of the wings. The wheelbase was 50 mm longer than the Ferrari 275 and the interior was redesigned to give passengers additional head and legroom, especially in the back.
The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 featured a revised 4.0-liter V-12 engine and the power was transmitted to the wheels through a five-speed gearbox instead of the overdrive four-speed of the previous Ferrari 330 America. Other advancements included a switch from wire to alloy wheels, as well as optional power steering and air conditioning.
