Personally owned by Enzo Ferrari, this prototype 2+2 coupe sports the chassis #4085. The car was recovered by its current owner before going up to auction in October 2019 by Schmitt auctions. With 67710 miles on the motor, this car has seen a lot of roadway. Concerning to a collector, right? Well, no.
This car (Fortunately) has been through a restoration the owner claims cost over $220,000 USD. We can see it, as it is a 1:1 (Technically 1:4) completely prototype car built for the CEO & Founder of Ferrari. It sports a V12 motor, a four-speed manual transmission, is rear-wheel drive, and comes in a beautiful ivory white paint on black leather interior. Whether this paint, or leather is original, we do not know.
What we could dig up was some records, with links below for proof. The vehicle travelled from shop-to-shop from Illinois, to New York, to Texas to get it’s work done, and from what we could find, the V12 engine was sourced from a 3105GT, as all 330 chassis vehicles were powered with the 300HP V12 at the time. The vehicle has gone through a few owners, being listed (And sold for $224,000USD) at Bonhams Scottsdale Auction.
Michael Dyer, Schmitt’s research director, was able to find this very car in a few spots, including in a Pininfarina press photo, and in brochures for the 330. “It’s even on the cover of the 330 owner’s manual,” Dyer tells Robb Report. Michael reached out to Enzo’s son, Piero Ferrari to solidify his claim to owning the 330 that Enzo owned.
The car is currently listed at $499,999USD by Schmitts Auction House, and is awaiting a sale.
