- A late-model example of Ferrari’s contemporary Pininfarina-styled V-12 grand tourer

The allure of a four-seat grand tourer fitted with a V-12 engine proved irresistible to a certain niche of enthusiasts. For those seeking Italian panache and sports car characteristics, all combined with the functionality of a practical interior layout, the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 was chief among those family-friendly and slightly more practical V-12 GTs.
Approximately 525 of these cars are believed to have been made before the Maranello marque replaced it with the 400-series models. Unlike its successors, which were notably the first Ferraris to offer an automatic transmission, the 365 GT4 2+2 was offered only with a five-speed manual gearbox paired with its 4.4-litre V-12—an engaging feature especially desired by today’s collectors. Factory data rated the Ferrari with a top speed of 245 km/h—a fair return for a four-seater, and positioning the model as a premium grand tourer of its era for any long-distance road trip that should be traversed in comfort and style.
Delivered new to official Ferrari dealer, Charles Pozzi of Paris, this example is believed to have lived the majority of its life in France. According to invoice copies on file dated March 2021, this 365 GT4 2+2 was refinished in its original, distinctive Oro Kelso (gold metallic), which is complemented by its black leather interior. Handsome yet understated, the 365 GT4 2+2's Pininfarina lines have aged exceptionally well; Cromodora alloy wheels only add to its appeal. The interior is reflective of the design of its day, with the wood-trimmed centre console housing the tape deck sound system. The sale includes a spare wheel, as well as a charming period-correct car phone installed in the cabin. A Ferrari factory build sheet forms part of this car’s history file and confirms that its chassis, engine, gearbox, and rear axle are all matching-numbers components.
Whether seeking a stylish grand tourer for the next adventure, or for those simply in the market for an increasingly rare Ferrari model, the 365 GT 2+2 will appeal to many—especially this example with its desirable colour configuration and key original components.
