Through its architecture, the Ferrari 330 GTC distinguishes itself as the first modern grand touring car by Ferrari. More than forty years after its introduction, its comfort and road-handling characteristics, which were rare at the time, are the result of technical solutions still applied on an F12 Berlinetta, for example.
In March 1966, the Maranello factory presented a pivotal model of its history at the Geneva Motor Show. Often referred as a 275 GTB in an evening dress, the Ferrari 330 GTC has a modern and contemporary architecture for this third millennium. The suspension, transmission, lubrication and engine cooling, ergonomics and comfort of the passenger compartment will revolutionize Ferrari design for decades to come.
Designed and manufactured by Pininfarina, the bodywork combines the lines of Ferrari cars of the time. Made of steel, the latter incorporates an aluminum hood fixed to an insulated steel frame. The design of the nose derives from the 500 Superfast. The rear volume is based on the design of the 275 GTS. Connolly's leather-covered interior is particularly well finished. The central pavilion settled the comfort on the "large series" Ferraris. Although comfortable, the "Lusso" looks Spartan compared to the 330 GTC, whose windshield and large rear window enhance visibility and brightness.
The layout of the "thruster-transmission" unit is identical to a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. As the engine is on the front, the transmission/differential unit is on the rear axle of the car. A steel tube, a true "spine", links these two distinct entities to ensure their alignment.
Note that the gearbox bolts to the differential. Operating at engine speed, the drive shaft is housed inside this tube which ensures a perfect alignment of the propulsion system. Known under the name Transaxle, we find this technology as well on the latest Ferrari 456 MGT, 575 Maranello and F12 Berlinetta, it favors mass balance.
Given the main vocation of the 330 GTC, the use of an engine recognized as flexible in urban condition was essential. The choice thus concerned the type 209 block operated at the time on the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2. The latter required some adjustments for its installation on the chassis type 592 C, especially with the "Transaxle", hence the new designation 209/66. For the first time, the engine rests on rubber buffers. Ferrari thus abandons the rigid fixation on the chassis, eliminating vibrations. Another new feature is that the engine block is assembled to the chassis by only two brackets.
With a total cylinder capacity of 3967 cm3 and 330 cm3 unitary, the 12-cylinder V engine produces 300 hp at 6800 rpm and provides a maximum torque of 33.2 Mkg at 5000 rpm.
Nowadays, the fabulous F12 Berlinetta fully assumes the role of the 330 GTC: a discreet Grand Touring Ferrari with exclusive performances.
Production stopped at the end of 68, after nearly 600 units had been built.
