1971 Ferrari 365 GTC4
The 365 GTC4 was showed for the first time at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show, when Ferrari tryed to offer a super sports performance car with four seats. Ferrari managed to fit two small seats to the rear, while maintaining compact dimensions of a standard two-seater coupé. Despite the limited habitability of the rear seats, it had a large trunk, unusual features for a Ferrari. This was the first 12-cylinder Ferrari presented after Fiat's takeover. The 365 GTC4 was called "Gobbone" because of the accentuated line of the roof and it had a fairly short career. In the autumn of 1972 production was stopped, with 500 specimens built. The mechanical layout was also replicated on the 365 GT4 2+2 that came after. The design of the car was very different from the model it replaced. The graceful rounded curves and the elliptical radiator grill had a much more angular wedge design, very popular at the time. The car itself had a very low hood, characterized by retractable headlights and a black rubber bumper, while the side window followed a homogeneous “drop” shape. The body was designed and set up by Pininfarina, with steel and aluminum. The 365 GTC4 was available with standard power-assisted steering, power windows and air conditioning. The Ferrari 365 GTC of the present service was restored a few years ago, and is in excellent condition, with "Ferrari Classiche" Certification and is ASI gold plate approved.
