For sale: Enzo Ferrari's personal 330 GT 2+2

Yes - this 330 GT 2+2 was owned and driven by Enzo Ferrari himself. And better still, it's currently for sale - for a rather large price...

If you own a classic Ferrari, you’re already sufficiently jammy as it is. But to have in your possession a Ferrari that once belonged to the founder of the company is a bit like owning a Guitar that once belonged to John Lennon. Well, car aficionados of the world, prepare yourself, because such a vehicle has come onto the market!

This stunning ivory 330 GT 2+2 was owned by Mr Enzo Ferrari himself. After enjoying it for two years, Enzo sold it on to Luigi Chinetti - a man famed for winning Le Mans, and also owning the very first Ferrari dealership in America. From their on out, it set itself on the life we now refer to as “history” - detailed documentation for which is present with the car.

The Pininfarina-styled 330 was an especially important car for Ferrari, for it superseded the legendary 250. With a V12 of 3967cc, the 330’s name originates from the engine’s 330cc per cylinder. In accordance with the era of 1962, the 300 horsepower wasn’t enough to warrant an upgrade from the 4-speed manual gearbox - with electronic override. Sophistication, darling (!)

So now, we must finally discuss the golden issue of price. Being sold by Daniel Schmitt & Co., you can expect to pay $495,000 for this piece of Ferrari history. As expensive as that is, how many cars around today can claim to have been driven by Enzo Ferrari himself? And in that, it gains its value.

But what do you guys think? Do you think it’s worth the asking price, or does the fact it was owned by Enzo not add any value in your eyes? Let me know in the comments.

  • Before anyone gets too excited a couple of things. The car was sold at auction back in January for a rather lower $224,400. It also does not have it's orginal engine which drops the value a lot on the Ferrari world.

    The car was owned by the factory (is is actually a development prototype of the 330GT 2+2) and not by Enzo himself so you're not buying a car that has his name directly on the old registration documents, and there seems to be evidence he drove it there are also a number of pictures online of Enzo driving a 330GT with air conditioning which this car lacks indicating he may have used a number of cars from the factory rather than just this specific one.

    • Sellers usually don't like this kind of information and I wish people were more accurate when it comes to ownership. It is a bit like certain classic Mercedes-Benz models supposedly owned by a certain German politician in the 1940s......

  • Was expecting a far higher ticket price. A true beaut.

  • If a 250 California owned by a nobody is worth millions, surely a personal Ferrari of the man himself is worth a lot. Sounds too cheap to me...

    • I thought the same. Steve McQueen’s sold for how many million? I love cars but car values make no sense to me.

  • Lovely car, but would rather own Enzo's last car model produced on his watch (F40) before he punched out. Classic Ferrari's are the sexiest pieces of art though.
