No single car company seems to draw as much attention to the industry as Ferrari. Their cars have been the envy of many, while being owned by few. With so many models to choose from, both past and present, it is difficult to determine a favorite. However it seems that public opinion has labeled which Ferraris are more popular than others. One such example is the Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2 Coupe.
These Berlina’s were the most expensive series production Ferrari’s available for 17 years and provided grand motoring in a lavishly appointed Pininfarina design. Introduced in 1972 as the 365 GT4 2+2 and going on to evolve through 400 and 400i variations, production finally ended in 1989 when the superb 412i was discontinued and not replaced.
Ferrari 365 GT4’s were almost identical to the GTC/4’s with unchanged Tipo F101 AC000 motors and five-speed manual gearboxes. A Colombo-derived 4.3-litre dual overhead camshaft 60° V12, the engine featured a displacement of 4290cc thanks to a bore and stroke of 81 x 71mm respectively. Compression was 8.8:1 and six twin choke Weber 38 DCOE sidedraught carbs fitted. Producing at 7000rpm, GT4’s were the worlds most potent full four-seaters. Despite weighing in at 1450kg, a top speed of 155mph was possible while 0-60 took just 6.4 seconds.
