This Beautiful 1967 Ferrari by Pininfarina Is Up For Auction!
The 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS is the Pininfarina family’s finest hour, its nose is lifted from the 500 Superfast and a set of front fenders swiped from the 330 GT, this Frankenstein car is a beautiful monster.
In the lead up to the 1966 Geneva Auto Show, Enzo Ferrari wanted to create something special, and being great at delegating, he gave this responsibility to Sergio Pininfarina and his brother Renzo Carli.
This particular model you are looking at was actually bought by an American living in France, after his purchase he drove the car from the Ferrari factory to Paris.
This is only half of this car’s checkered history, it was stolen in 1981, but mysteriously resurfaced in Florida and was reunited with American. After his death, the car crossed the ocean again and ended up in New Jersey where it stayed in Skip Barbers private collection for twenty years.
This GTS is now up for sale through RM Sotheby’s, suffice to say the car is in impeccable condition, it still has the same mechanical layout, independent suspension, four-wheel Girling disc brakes, five-speed transaxle and the Borrani wire wheels it left the factory with.
Under the piece of art moonlighting as a bonnet sits Ferrari’s famous four-litre, twin-cam V-12, delivering a genuine 300 bhp, which can still propel the Italian thoroughbred to dizzying speeds of 150mph.
But we don’t know who in their right mid would be in a rush to get anywhere in this sleek car.
