320 bhp, 4,390 cc dual overhead camshaft V-12 engine, five-speed manual transmission, four-wheel independent suspension with unequal-length A-arms, coil springs, hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers and anti-roll bars, and four-wheel disc brakes with brake force booster. Wheelbase: 2,500 mm (98.4 in.)

The 365 GTC/4 was developed to meet the ever-growing demand among Ferrari’s clientele for a luxurious, high performance automobile with accommodations for up to four passengers. The new model represented a very logical progression for Ferrari, and while its chassis was essentially derived from the contemporary 365 GTB/4 “Daytona”, its five-speed gearbox was mounted in tandem with the engine and the 365 GTC/4 continued to utilise the self-leveling rear suspension of the 365 GT 2+2. Long appreciated for its driving ease and Colombo-derived V-12 engine, the 365 GTC/4 capably upheld Ferrari’s performance image with its superb high-speed touring capabilities.

Finished in the striking combination of Blu Dino Metallizzato (medium metallic blue) with a Pelle Biano (white leather) interior, this 365 GTC/4 was imported new into France in July 1972 through the official importer Charles Pozzi SA of Levallois-Perret and sold to its first owner in France in August 1972. While its ownership history through 2005 is presently unknown, the car was certainly maintained in original condition and has seen relatively little use from new. The white leather interior was re-trimmed in beige at some point before the car was eventually exported to Switzerland. In 2005, with 50,170 recorded original kilometres, the renowned classic car dealer Lukas Hüni of Zürich acquired the car and sold it to Dr. Friedrich von Bohlen und Halbach of Heidelberg, Germany. The successful biochemist then commissioned a comprehensive refurbishment by Hüni, including a repaint in its original colour and replacement of most worn parts. The total work performed between December 2005 and June 2006 amounted to over 70,000 CHF. Having been returned to perfection, the 365 GTC/4 joined Dr. von Bohlen und Halbach’s growing Ferrari collection and was used only sparingly thereafter.

In 2008, chassis no. 16063 passed into the ownership of the current vendor. With its low original mileage and current German historic car title, this 365 GTC/4 is unquestionably one of the finest examples in existence.
