1969 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 by Pininfarina

By the mid-1960s, Ferrari responded to market demands with half of its production featuring four seats. Following the success of the 1960 250 GTE, Ferrari unveiled the 330 GT 2+2 in January 1964.

With a longer steel tube chassis compared to its predecessor, the 330 boasted independent front suspension and a live rear axle. Underneath its spacious Pininfarina design lay a potent 300bhp, 4-liter V12 engine mated to a four-speed overdrive gearbox.

Its successor, the 365 GT 2+2, debuted at the 1967 Paris Salon, echoing the sleek style of the limited edition 500 Superfast while setting new standards for Ferrari refinement. Built on a chassis similar to the 330 GTC, it featured Ferrari’s signature combination of oval and round steel tubing, along with all-round independent suspension— a first for Ferrari’s four-seaters.

Notable enhancements included Koni’s hydro-pneumatic self-leveling system, rubber-mounted engine and drivetrain for reduced noise, and ZF power-assisted steering and air conditioning as standard. With a proven 4.4-liter V12 engine producing 320bhp, mated to a five-speed gearbox, the 365 GT delivered exhilarating performance, achieving a top speed of 150mph and accelerating from 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds.
