Sold For: $858,000

The house of Ferrari was intent upon competing seriously in the global luxury car market when the 365 GTC was unveiled at the 1967 Paris Salon de l'Automobile exhibition. The new model was derived from a fusion of the preceding 500 Superfast with its sleek and exquisitely proportioned wind-cheating body form by Pininfarina, and the one-off GTC Special that had been custom-made by the factory for the Belgian Princess Liliane de Rethy.

During the period 1968-1970, Ferrari manufactured no fewer than 2,276 road cars and amongst that total around 800 were 365 GT Series cars. Amongst this model family offered in both 330 GTC form with 4-litre V12 engine and the later enlarged 365 GTC with 4.4-litre only some 150 of the 365 GTC variants were manufactured from introduction late in 1968, thus making them one of the rarest and most desirable of Grand Touring Ferraris.
