This is the Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake built by the Italian entrepreneur Alfredo Vignale. The company Vignale was an Italian automotive coachbuilder company. This car is their marvellous creation.

This Ferrari started life as a standard 1965 330 GT 2+2. Alfredo Vignale really took this car to the next level with his design. Some people may think that it's an ugly car but I really think that it needs to be appreciated. All of the cars lines are stunning and everything flows into one another. While it may look like a hearse, it's still got so much class.

Don't get me wrong, the original 330 GT 2+2 was an absolutely stunning car and I probably would have one over this but you really do have to admire this. The original 330 GT 2+2 was only 50mm longer than the original but of course had Ferrari's flagship V12 engine. Ferrari 'supposedly' produced 1,099 units, which makes this project even more special.

The history behind the 330 GT Shooting Brake started in 1967 with the son of the American Ferrari importer who decided he wanted to take one of these cars and make it something special. He teamed up with Bob Peak, an American Hollywood poster Illustrator to design the shooting brake 330. Once they were happy with it they approached the coachbuilder Alfredo Vignale to shape the metal for them. Thus resulting in something spectacular.

  • Is this a one-off? I remember musician Jay Kay of Jamiroquai having a green one.
