By the mid-1960s, 50 percent of all Ferraris produced were being built with four seats. Third in this succession of ‘family Ferraris’ was the 365GT 2+2, which made its public debut at the Paris Salon in October 1967. Sleekly styled in the manner of the limited edition 500 Superfast, the 365GT 2+2 was the most refined Ferrari to date. Based on that of the contemporary 330GTC, the chassis was made up of Ferrari’s familiar combination of oval and round steel tubing and, as well as featuring independent suspension all round – for the first time on a Ferrari 2+2 – boasted Koni’s hydro-pneumatic self-leveling system at the rear. Further refinements included mounting the engine and drive-train in rubber bushes to insulate the car’s occupants from noise and vibration, and offering power-assisted steering and air conditioning as standard equipment. Developing 320bhp in its 365GT incarnation, the well-proven 4.4-litre V12 engine was coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox, while the car’s blistering performance – top speed 150mph, 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds – was restrained by Girling ventilated discs all round.
