IF you mated a Ford Pinto with a Ferrari 308GTS this is what you’d get – an it-thing-whadjamacallit.
UK auto auctioneer Coys of Kensington is offering a mint condition 330GT “Shooting Brake.”
Not too sure what a “Shooting Brake” stood for, the online dictionary explained that it’s a distinctly British term used to describe any two door coupe with a station wagon’s backend.
So, in this Ferrari’s case, the 330GT Shooting Brake was warmly received by some of the auto press of its day.
“The late Paul Frere, the noted Belgian racing driver and automotive journalist, road tested a 330 GT 2+2 late in 1966. He came away suitably impressed: ‘In handling, this car is exactly like all Ferraris which I have driven before … It is close to being as neutral as one could want… But the most impressive feature of the handling of the 330 is the solidness with which it changes direction, particularly in S-bends, where it tracks with about the same precision as a modern race car’.” Coys’ site said.
As always, Coys is mum on the price.
