This UK delivered factory right hand drive example was delivered new in Glamorgan, Wales in the UK. The car was initially registered as TPK 51M and delivered in late 1973. The owner only had the car a short time and it was then acquired by its second (Australian) owner. Believed to have been imported to Melbourne in 1974.
In period the car was well regarded though the oil crisis of the 1970′s made the car somewhat difficult to sell and only 524 examples were built from 1973 to 1976.
The early 1970′s were a time of innovation and Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati et al continued to introduce new models in an endeavour to trump the other. The 365 GTC/4 was only in production in 1971 & 1972 and its successor the 365 GT/4 2+2 was first shown in October 1972 at the Paris Motor Show. This car, designed and built by Pininfarina, featured unique styling and whilst the sharp angular lines were ‘very new’ for Ferrari.
Powered by a 365 GT/4 2+2 4390 cc quad cam V12 engine with six Weber 38DCOE side draught carburettors put out an impressive 320 bhp was capable of propelling the car from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/hr) in a healthy 6.4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 150 mph (250 km/hr).
According to the historians Ferrari painted a number of cars in the colour avorio (ivory). The car has new black carpets in the interior & boot and HVL correct appearance mouse hair for dash, console and rear parcel shelf. The car looks stunning in this unique colour that really suits the car.
This has to be the last of the relatively affordable classic front engine V12 Ferraris.
The car is ‘matching numbers’ and it has books (the original operating manual and a proper reproduction pouch) & tools (the correct tool box, jack & tool and hammer).
