Unjustly overshadowed by the great 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’ which was produced concurrently, the 365 GTC/4 model was seen as a softer alternative and as a result remained a largely underestimated Ferrari for many years. It shared the Daytona‘s 4,390cc, four camshaft V12 engine, breathing through six Weber carburettors, albeit slightly detuned to produce 320bhp at 6,200rpm and a lusty 3181b/ft at 4,000rpm; allied to a five-speed gearbox, the 365 GTC/4 still offered considerable performance with a 163mph top speed and 0-60mph acceleration in just 6.5 seconds. Roadholding and handling were also of a high order, with self-levelling rear dampers and well-weighted power assisted steering, while brakes were powerful discs front and rear. Production ended in autumn 1972 after only 500 365 GTC/4s had been built, and as a consequence these grand tourers have become increasingly sought after.

Chassis number 16139 was manufactured in 1972 and acquired by a prestigious private collection in 2003, since when it has been kept in a heated garage with full time staff employed to look after the collection. During the ‘80s and ‘90s, the car spent many years residing in Hong Kong, during which time numerous work was carried out on it (all of which are documented in the car‘s history file) before returning to Great Britain in 1995. Since then, it has had more work carried out, including a comprehensive service in 1997 at a cost of more than £12,000. All of these works – totalling ten of thousands of pounds were completed by Ferrari factory agents Italian Motors (Sales & Service) Ltd and Ferrari factory agents Mortimer Houghton Turner.

Finished in Azzuro Mettalico with a tan leather interior, the car is offered in good condition and comes complete with an exhaustive and extensive service history file detailing all work completed on the car .

An excellent opportunity to acquire a classic piece of Ferrari engineering and highly recommended.
