Everyone has their limits. The Ferrari GT 2+2 was Enzo Ferrari’s limit when making a 4-passenger Ferrari. A 4-door sedan was out of the question for “Il Commendatore" bar a prototype and one off here and there. It has remained the Ferrari way up to today and only will be broken when the 365 GT 2+2’s grandchild, the Ferrari Purosangue is released. Our Ferrari 365 2+2 is an original European supplied car in great original condition. Good care has saved this car from ever needing full restoration. The original bodywork has lovely thin, correctly aligned panelwork. It has had a cosmetic re-spray and both bodywork and paintwork have held up very well with only minor signs of use. The Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 was the first Ferrari to be fitted with self levelling suspension Koni’s. Lifelong client and Enzo Ferrari's good friend, the Dutch Prince Bernhard of Oranje Nassau, persuaded Enzo to use the Dutch shock breaker company after driving one of royal's Ferrari’s fitted with Koni’s. The Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 was the first model to benefit from this pioneering technique. The suspension configuration in combination with the long wheel base created the perfect Grand Tourer. The press lauded the 365 when it was introduced for its spacious cabin and good roadholding. The press were unanimous that this car was roomier than its competitors even by today’s standards it is still very practicable. Of course they also rather liked the triple Weber 4.4 litre Colombo V12 engine. The engine excels in a smooth delivery of power. With 330 Ps this is still a very fast car. It has a 5-speed manual gearbox. The original, matching numbers V12 runs lovely and sounds superb. The transmission and clutch action is precise. The character of the full authentic interior trim absolutely jumps out and suits this Italian "Gran Tourismo" intended purpose to a tee. Although the Ferrari 365 2+2 one of the best selling Ferrari models was at the time, the total output of only 800 was quite modest. Currently there are a lot fewer left and the Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 is consequently still a rare sight. In short this is a wonderful and exceptionally original Ferrari 365 GT 2+2. You would be hard put to find many more like this.
