Description

1975 Ferrari 365GT4 2+2 Berlina
Coachwork by Pininfarina
Registration no. KKJ 453N
Chassis no. 18101
Engine no. 18101

'Most important was the double overhead cam engine. Like Rolls-Royce, no horsepower figure was quoted, but surely it was at least 320. More important was its massive amount of torque. Taken together with the turbine-like characteristics of the V12 engine, it mattered little which gear one was in or at what speed.' – Stanley Nowak on the 356GT4 2+2, 'Ferrari on the Road'.

Introduced towards the end of 1972, the 365GT4 2+2 was the biggest and best equipped four-seater Ferrari so far. Flagship of the Maranello range, it reaffirmed Ferrari's determination to compete with the world's finest luxury saloons. Based on the preceding 365GT 2+2, albeit lower, longer and wider, the newcomer was fitted with a four-cam version of the 4.4-litre V12 engine while retaining its predecessor's mechanical underpinnings. A total of only 524 had been completed by the time production ceased in 1976.

This un-restored example of the ultimate Ferrari of its day was purchased by the current vendor in 1991 and last taxed for the road in 2009. Previously owned by noted collector Jack Henley, the car comes with the original purchase receipt showing that the first owner part-exchanged his Daytona for it. 'KKJ 453N' will be offered for sale freshly MoT'd/taxed and with its engine serviced. The bodywork is described as in generally good condition, as is the paintwork, although the latter and the interior would benefit from refurbishment. Offered with V5 registration document.
