These terrific V12 front engined Grand Tourers have really appreciated recently - helped no doubt by their practicality and offering a straightforward, brisk and pleasurable driving experience. The lusty 4.0 and 4.4 V12 engines make all the classic sounds and these really are cars you can drive in town or take to an event.
Talacrest deal in the 330 GTC, 330 GTS, 365 GTC and 365 GTS models - both coupe and spyder models being both eligible for events and eminently practical
Talacrest in 2011 sold the Ferrari 365 GTC owned by George Harrison - the car which subsequently inspired Eric Clapton to also buy this model not long after. We sold the ex - Eric Clapton car as well this year - the celebrity provenance associated with these cars assuring the investment value of these models.
The 330 GTC and 330 GTS were more like their 275 counterparts than the 330 GT 2+2. They shared the short wheelbase of the 275 as well as its independent rear suspension.
The GTS spyder followed and about 600 coupés and 100 spiders were produced before the 1968 introduction of the 365 GTC & GTS and the 365 GTB/4 "Daytona".
The 330 GTC was replaced in 1968 by the 365 GTC. It was essentially just a re-engine of the 330 GTC, with even the styling remaining almost the same. Differences were limited to non-vented front wings and a vented bonnet. 150 examples were built (including 22 in right hand drive) between 1968 and 1970. It was replaced by the Ferrari 365 GTC/4.
Like the 330 GTC, the 330 GTS was replaced in 1968 by the 365 GTS. Again a simple re-engine job, this Spider featured the same styling changes as the coupe. Just 20 were built before its place was assumed by the 365 GTB/4-based Daytona Spyder.
