The Ferrari 330 GTC can be seen as the most direct successor to the 275, sharing the shorter wheelbase of the car as well as the independent rear suspension. However, the 330 GTC benefitted from the upgraded 4-litre Colombo V12 and simply stunning exterior styling.
The vehicle was introduced at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show and has always been regarded as one of the finest examples of the Pininfarina-Ferrari partnership. Just 600 of these stunning V12s were produced and values have recently started to reflect its beauty and performance.
The matching engine and chassis example with Ferrari Classiche we are delighted to offer is chassis number 11385, delivered through Georges Filipinetti’s Swiss concessionaire S.A.V.A.F in May 1968 and finished in Azzuro Metallizato as it sits today.
The car was ordered new by a Mr Peter Bucher who sold it in 1972 to Herr Christoph Ringier in Zofingen. ‘Ringier’ was and is still a media and journalism powerhouse in Switzerland, and research shows that Christoph went on to become managing director up until 1989 when he stepped aside.
Many invoices in the file have it owned by Christoph, or Ringier AG, up until June 2001 which is when he sold it to Urs Jaermann, a management consultant from Zurich through Lukas Hüni AG.
He kept it until 2005 where upon he sent it to Bonhams Gstaad where it was sold to Julio Batista, a Spanish businessman who despite living in Geneva decided to register the car for use in Madrid.
He sold the car in June 2012 to a UK based company where it was swiftly sent to Bonhams Goodwood at the end of that same summer, achieving just over £230,000.
The car was bought by a Berkshire based businessman who quickly went about re-trimming the leather throughout the interior.
By June 2014, the car was registered with its now 3rd UK owner who bought it from Dick Lovett Ferrari of Swindon. As a result of the sale, Lovett’s undertook a host of mechanical work to the car totalling over £30,000 - all of which is invoiced on file. They also applied and received Ferrari Classiche on the car during this time. Less than a year later the 3rd sold to its 4th and current owner, once more through Dick Lovett, where another £25,000 was invested into the car as part of the sale. Since then the owner has look after the car very well, having it looked over at Lovett’s on a number of occasions including when he sent it for new shocks and springs.
Today the car comes with Ferrari Classiche confirming the car to be matching engine and chassis and in its original colour. It comes with a very healthy history file dating back to 1977, has correct manual, parts catalogue and tool roll. Currently sitting in fantastic mechanical and aesthetic condition, Chassis 11385 is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
