In total, only 36 coupe Ferrari 330 GT 2 + 2 of the first series were produced. The supercar is equipped with a 300-horsepower V12, allowing it to reach 245 km/h.
In the UK, a 1964 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was sold at Dore and Rees auction. A rare supercar went under the hammer at a relatively low price of 73,000 pounds ($81,000) – as a rule, such cars are 2-3 times more expensive. The Ferrari story was told on the auction house website.
The fact is that the state of the supercar is deplorable – it requires a complex and expensive restoration. For the past 40 years, the car has sat in a garage without any maintenance.
The Ferrari 330 GT is rusted and its body panels are painted in different colors. The interior trim was cracked and the supercar's engine caught fire when it was recently tried to be started.
The owner of the car, Peter, said that he decided to buy a Ferrari 330 GT in 1971, because he was attracted by the car's very low price of just £1,750. The Briton was going to race on the supercar.
However, a number of hidden defects were soon discovered in a used Ferrari. Serious problems with the clutch and brakes made him forget about the operation of the car.
Peter tried to repair the supercar and even repaint it from silver to red. But in the end, the work was not completed and the problematic car was abandoned. She last hit the roads in the 80s.
The car itself is valuable, because only 36 of these Ferrari 330 GT 2 + 2 of the first series were produced in total. The touring coupe is equipped with a 4.0-liter 300-horsepower V12 and can develop 245 km/h.
