This distinguished black over tan Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2, chassis number 17695, was originally supplied new in Germany through Auto Becker to a local enthusiast and registered on the 1st of November 1973 before being sold to Switzerland.

Between 2006 and 2009 an extensive restoration program was undertaken at the hands of a Swiss marque specialist to prepare the Ferrari for the highest level of concours competition while retaining its original finishes to the extent possible.

Restoration works included fully rust-proofing the chassis, a bare-metal re-spray, rebuilding the engine, transmission, suspension and brakes, renewing the electrics as well as re-trim of the seats and new carpets.

Understood to be an original mileage example, showing just over 87,600 kilometers, the car has been extensively serviced since the rebuild, tuned and fitted with a new ANSA exhaust system and new tires, with brakes being completely overhauled in 2017.

The engine compartment is fully detailed for concours competition with care taken to preserve original patinas where possible. The paint and interior are refreshed to achieve as close as possible to a new car look while maintaining respect for original finishes wherever possible.

The car drives superbly with the massive V12 providing effortless thrust accompanied by a glorious soundtrack featuring six burbling Weber carburetors and wondrous V12 sound emanating from the Ansa exhaust as the 5-speed manual transmission is put through its paces.

This Ferrari is offered with a Swiss Carte Grise Registration Certificate and current Swiss Historic MoT until 2023 as well as a history file that includes a photographic record of the rebuild. Swiss and European taxes have been paid.

As the swan song of the famous carbureted Ferrari V12, this extremely well cared for 365 GT4 2+2 makes an essential contribution to any collection of important Ferraris. The superb performance, elegant color scheme and high level of presentation make this example ready to be shown and enjoyed.

Ferrari's dominance of the sports car market in the 1960's is legendary. The models produced were ground breaking, elegant and were instant classics even then. Their popularity has only increased with age and the values have continued to rise, gaining the cars iconic status throught the World of fine Automobiles.

It is the company's foray into the luxury Grand Touring market that is perhaps undervalued in today's market as these cars were equally as exciting and ground breaking. For without their conception, modern luxury GT performance cars would have no marker to start from.

Keen to fill this spot Ferrari aimed these cars directly at wealthy business men, customers who in fact may have already possessed an existing two seater Ferrari. This style of Grand Tourer started with the 365 Series, introduced in 1967 and in production until the Paris Auto Salon in 1972 when Ferrari unveiled the all new 365 GT4 2+2 to the world.

The 365 GT4 was a fast, svelte and elegant 2+2 powered by the legendary V12 engine, and was the most expensive series produced by Ferrari for 17 years. The initial model was the 365 GT4 2+2, which was later followed by the 400 and 412 series, and with manufacture ceasing in 1989, these four seaters enjoyed the longest production run of any Ferrari model.

In true Ferrari tradition the car was styled by Pininfarina. Its three-box design was a clear departure from its fastback predecessor, the 365 GTC/4. Following the Daytona, the GT4 2+2 was the second Ferrari to feature the characteristic design feature of a swage line dividing the body into an upper and a lower half.

The tubular steel chassis was based on that of the GTC/4, but the wheelbase was lengthened to 2,700 mm. The bodies were built and fully trimmed at the Pininfarina works in Turin, and then shipped to the Ferrari factory in Maranello for the installation of the mechanical components.

Suspension consisted of double wishbones, coil springs coaxial with the shock absorbers, and anti-roll bars all around; the rear axle featured an hydraulic self-levelling system. The steering was servo-assisted and brakes were discs on all four wheels.

Under the bonnet was the outstanding Tipo F 101 Colombo V12 all alloy 24-valve unit using wet sump lubrication. The transmission was conventionally coupled directly to the engine, as on the GTC/4, with a driveshaft connecting it to the rear limited slip differential. The gearbox was a five-speed, all-synchromesh manual with a single-plate clutch.

The 4.4-litre V12 unit used six side-draft Weber 38 DCOE 59/60 carburetors and produced 340 bhp at 7000 rpm resulting in the world's most potent full four-seater at the time. Despite its 1,450 kilos, the car galloped from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds and was capable of a top speed of 250 km/h.

Five-spoke alloy wheels were mounted on Rudge knock-off hubs; Borrani wire wheels were still offered at extra cost. Fittingly for a large grand tourer, standard equipment included leather upholstery, electric windows and air conditioning.

The 365 GT4 2+2 then evolved into the 400, that in Automatic guise was the first Ferrari equipped with an automatic transmission. In 1979 the 400 was replaced by the fuel injected 400i. Finally, the improved 412 was introduced in 1985 and phased out in 1989, bringing to an end Ferrari's longest ever production series.

The 365 GT4 2+2 is easily distinguished from its successors by its six rear tail lights, knock-off alloy wheels and lack of a front spoiler and was produced between 1972 and 1976, with production totalling 521 cars, with 388 in left-hand drive.

Various coachbuilders, such as Carrozzeria Pavesi or Straman, offered convertible conversions of the 400 series. Switzerland's Felber also showed a shooting brake version on 400 GT basis called the Felber Croisette at the 1981 Geneva Salon de l'Auto.

Enzo Ferrari, Richard Burton, members of the Rolling Stones, Whitney Houston and Brewery Magnate Heineken all used to drive a 365/400/412 series Ferrari.
