Ferrari 330 GTC
A Front-Engine V12 with Drivability and Panache
The Ferrari 330 GTC was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 1966. The GTS spider was unveiled later that year at the October, 1966 Geneva Motor Show. It shares the same chassis and drivetrain.
The 330 is powered by an evolution of the Colombo V12 engine, which features a wider bore, and has an alternator in place of a generator. The 330 shares the chassis and independent rear suspension of the short wheelbase Ferrari 275.
The 330 is more refined than earlier Ferrari’s. Author Godfrey Eaton notes the 330 "was probably the first Ferrari in which you could actually enjoy a radio.”
Overall, 600 coupes and 100 spiders were shipped before production ceased in 1968.
