The Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 was presented at the 1972 Paris Motor Show and everyone fell in love with it: it was simply beautiful.
The sporty, angular and elegant lines of the sedan were lost in the malice of a 340 HP V12 engine. But the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 had a lot of classy elements, starting with the distinctive door handles and ending with those five-spoke star-patterned alloy wheels with the “Cavallino” in the center.
The 365 GT4 2+2 was a Ferrari of crystalline purity, in elegant dress, but able to reach very high speeds, without giving up the luggage of its passengers.
Inside, the finishes included a standard leather upholstery with the two rear seats that were all in all comfortable, thanks to the good height of the ceiling and the useful space for the legs.
The three-spoke steering wheel complemented an old-fashioned interior with large, well-shaped seats. The stereo system, the electric windows, the wooden inserts on the dashboard and the wooden steering wheel are also standard. The bodywork, produced by Pininfarina of Turin, was then transferred to Maranello for final assembly. Thus came to life a refined Ferrari, with its imposing bonnet and four powerful exhaust fumes from its exaggerated V12, which sounds impressive.
The specs of the 365 GT4 2+2, declared 340 "reassuring" HP, with 420 Nm of torque, far from being tamed by any electronic devilry.
The four five-spoke light alloy wheels with a star design and a single nut chevron completed the perfection of the external lines.
On the market, the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 was conceived to respond to the growing international demand of that period, for high-performance cars, but with good interior space. It was with this approach that this model redefined the entire Ferrari driving experience.
Enzo Ferrari loved this car for its line that did not need to scream its excesses, but which with elegance and style always managed to excite.
Frankly, we don't have a hard time believing it.
This Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 is perfectly preserved, first Silver painting, never restored with matching chassis and engine number and delivery new by Ferrari to the official Auto Becker dealership in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The first owner, Mr. Horst of Hurth-Hermulheim, kept the car until 1988, when it was bought by other two other German owners, and then by a Paris collector in 2000.
In 2004 the clutch was replaced by the specialized workshop Forza Motors and in 2006 “Isotta Automobiles” carried out a complete overhaul of the engine.
Having never been restored, this Ferrari boasts the kind of patina that will please the Maranello’s purists out there.
Crucially, it’s also accompanied by its ultra-rare original warranty booklet, Becker Mexico radio manuals and its ‘Servizi di vendita & Assistenza’ card from 1973.
The growing interest of collectors in this model and the excellent condition of the car, make the investment required for its purchase reasonable.
The car is visible in our showroom in Reggio Emilia.
