Continuing the four-seat grand touring design first posed by the 250 GTE 2+2, the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 was officially introduced at the Brussels Salon in January 1964. The model followed an interim run of 330 Americas that were built on the last few 250 GTE chassis, the unofficial debut of Maranello’s most recently enlarged Colombo V-12.

Now built on a 2,650 mm wheelbase that was 50 mm longer than that of its predecessor, the 330 GT 2+2 also wore freshly designed coachwork by Pininfarina, most notably featuring quad-headlamps that were the contribution of factory test driver Mike Parkes. The Pininfarina body was crafted with delicate front fender strakes in a 4-3-4 sequence of vents, a styling cue adapted from the elite 500 Superfast. Just 674 cars were built through 1966 before the body was changed into a single-headlamp configuration with GTC-style fender vents, which made the Series I examples particularly desirable.

This authentically restored Series I 330 GT 2+2 is believed to have enjoyed the care of just four owners during its life, one of whom retained possession for 33 years. Originally distributed to Paris, this car remained in France (and later Belgium) until acquired by the current owner via London’s Hexagon Classics. 6113 is now offered for the first time in the US and shows the glowing benefits of a restoration completed in early 2013.

Accompanied by documentation, including service invoices dating to 1978, restoration photos, and a letter of origin from Ferrari Classiche documenting the original color combination it still wears today, this fnely restored 330 GT 2+2 is a portrait of elegance in its distinctive Oro Chiaro metallic paint, refnished brightwork, and polished Borrani wire wheels. Perfect for local concours presentation or pure driving enjoyment, this Ferrari ofers an approachable gateway to the 330 bloodline.
