Despite riding on the same platform, and thus sharing the same wheelbase and suspension, the car was aimed at being a more comfortable grand tourer and so softer spring rates and hydraulic power steering came as standard. Styled by Pininfarina and built with a steel body and aluminium doors, the very graceful lines of the body could be achieved because the 4.4-litre V12 engine ran six twin-choke Weber carburettors, rather than injection, allowing a lower profile and more sloping bonnet. The car gave 340BHP and benefitted from near-perfect weight distribution of 51:49 thanks to the 5-speed gearbox and alloy bell housing being set well back in the chassis. Just 505 cars were ever produced making this a highly collectable and rare example of the marque. This particular left-hand drive car, chassis 15623, was specified new with air conditioning, power windows and a speedometer in miles-per-hour and was supplied by Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada. The history file contains a Massini report which documents the cars ownership history from new and the car also carries Ferrari’s official Classiche “Certificazione di Autenticita” which confirms it retains its original engine from new. Imported to the UK by noted official Ferrari service and restoration centre, Joe Macari, in 2014, it was then restored by them to Concours condition and, on completion, exhibited at the 2016 London Classic Car Show at Excel as an example of their very best work. Suitably impressed by the outstanding standard of restoration achieved, it was purchased by our vendor, rock legend and Jamiroquai frontman, Jay Kay, for £375,000 and became a part of his amazing and eclectic private collection. Since then it has enjoyed occasional use and, like all his cars, having been properly stored and maintained is today on the button and ready to go. Recently Silverstone Auctions MD, Nick Whale, drove the car and had this to say afterwards: “My prior thoughts of the 365 GTC/4 were modest given the amazing reputation of the Daytona. However, when Jay threw me the keys with a glint in his eye my hopes were raised, rightly as it happens, and this car turned out to be the best driving Ferrari built in the 1970’s that I have ever experienced. It has refinement in terms of both ride and noise levels, way beyond any reasonable expectations and furthermore, it has performance and handling to match. The engine just purrs at tick over and from there it delivers amazing quantities of both torque and power in a smooth and quietly progressive manner. In short, it’s a real drivers car that you could cover serious miles in with no concerns about comfort and reliability. I absolutely love it!” Offered at an amazingly realistic guide today, this car offers a serious Ferrari collector a very special opportunity. 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4 Coupé More Images Lot 317 Bid On Lot 317
