Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1966, the Ferrari 330 GTC, also known as GTC Berlinetta, was a two-seater Coupe designed by Pininfarina. With the less sporty 2+2 model being sold alongside, the Ferrari 330 GTC needed to be both a Grand Touring car and a true performance car. The body features an oval grille, round headlamps and a longer front hood, resulting in an elegant and beautiful two-door Coupe. A shortened 275 GTB frame was used as a base and the more aggressive looking rear end of the 275 GTS was fitted. The cabin stood tall for easy entrance and exit, while side vents on the hood and quad exhaust pipes helped to build a sporty look. Under the hood, a revised version of the Colombo V12 delivered 300hp to the wheels. The 4-Liter engine with 3 Weber DFI carburetors enabled an acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in just 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 146 mph, putting the car way ahead of the competition at the time.
The revised gearbox was placed in the rear axle to give the car a better front to rear weight ratio and incorporated different gear ratios enabled the Ferrari 330 GTC to reach a higher top speed. A fully independent suspension system featuring uneven A-arms in the front and in the rear was used over the old live axle system to make the car easier to drive on long trips. With 604 examples made between 1966 and 1968, the Ferrari 330 GTC was a large production lineup for Ferrari according to the brands production standards at the time. The Ferrari factory wasnt similar to those in the US, with each car being special and worked on for an impressive number of hours.
