The Geneva Motor Show in March 1966 witnessed the debut of the 330 GTC, a two-seat marvel that essentially represented a closed iteration of the 275 GTS. Underneath its sleek exterior, the 330 GTC housed Ferrari’s renowned 60-degree V12, a 4.0-liter powerhouse generating 300bhp—the same engine featured in the 330GT 2+2. Following Ferrari’s tradition, the chassis boasted a short wheelbase of 94.5 inches, constructed with sturdy oval-section main tubes in a steel spaceframe. The suspension, embracing wishbones and coil springs, was independently deployed on all corners.
Originating in the 1964 275 GTB, the rear suspension, a groundbreaking inclusion in road-going Ferraris, incorporated a transaxle system housing the five-speed gearbox. This setup inherently contributed to a better-balanced vehicle. Substantial development efforts were dedicated to minimizing cabin noise, ensuring a refined driving experience. The interior reflected a luxurious Gran Turismo style, featuring standard amenities such as leather seats, electric windows, and a heated rear screen. Optional extras included a radio, air conditioning, and Borrani wire wheels.
Boasting a top speed surpassing 150mph, coupled with outstanding ride comfort and confident handling, Ferrari proudly asserted the 330 GTC as the epitome of high-speed transportation for two, complete with their luggage.
