1968 Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 Coupe

Surprisingly, 50% of all Ferraris produced by the mid-1960s were built with four seats.

The 365 GT 2+2 was launched at the Paris Salon in October 1967. Sleekly styled in the manner of the limited-edition 500 Superfast, the 365 GT 2+2 was the most refined Ferrari to date.

Based on the contemporary 330 GTC, the chassis was made of Ferrari’s familiar combination of oval and round steel tubing. Developing 320 hp in its 365 GT incarnation, the well-proven 4.4-liter V12 engine was coupled to a 5-speed gearbox, and the car’s blistering performance (top speed 150 mph, 0-60 mph in 7 seconds) was restrained by Girling ventilated discs all around. Endowed with an unusual combination of fine handling and a supple ride, the 365 GT 2+2 Coupe was rated by Car magazine as “the most civilised Ferrari yet.”

Only 50 of the 809 365 GT 2+2s built were right-hand drive. This right-drive chassis, s/n 12025, was delivered new to Colonel Ronnie Hoare, head of Ferrari’s U.K. importer, Maranello Concessionaires. It was displayed at the 53rd International London Motor Show at Earls Court. Reported to have had only four owners from new, in 1983 the car went to marque specialists DK Engineering for an engine rebuild and other restoration work.

12025 is featured in A Guide to Ferrari Road Cars and comes with Ferrari Classiche certification, all service records, and MoTs dating back to 2002. Finished in its original Tourbillon Blue with beige leather, the car is described by the vendor as being in good/excellent condition. A well-documented and properly maintained 365 GT 2+2 Coupe, it is well suited for continued enjoyment and ready to please its fortunate next owner.
