The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 boasted comfortable seating for four, plenty of luggage space and a comfortable ride tailored for Grand Touring. This made the four-seat Ferrari a good candidate for a wagon conversion, which famed Italian styling house Vignale eventually got around to performing one year after the 330 GT’s launch in 1964.
Just one Ferrari 330 GT Vignale wagon was ever built. The car started out life as a standard 330 GT painted red with a beige interior and wearing the standard perforated alloy wheels. By 1967 Luigi Chinetti Jr., son of the famed American Ferrari importer of the same name, had taken ownership of the car and drawn up a concept to turn it into a sport wagon. He contracted Alfredo Vignale, who had previously styled Ferraris before Pininfarina came into play, and soon after was taking ownership of his one-off wagon.
The 330 GT Vignale was displayed at the 50th Annual Turin Motor Show before Chinetti Jr., or ‘Coco’ as he was known, took possession in Connecticut. It traded hands throughout the 1970s and 1980s before landing in the hands of one Jean-Claude Paturau in Paris in the 1990s, who showed it off at the Louis Vuitton Concours d’Elegance in 1996.
Now the 330 GT Vignale is looking for a new home, currently listed for sale by Joe Macari of London. The dealership says the car currently sits “sits beautifully restored and resplendent in a rich Grey over Tan,” and is” in superb cosmetic and mechanical condition and has fewer than 13,000 miles on the odometer.” The pricetag is representative of a one-of-a-kind Ferrari: £694,950, or around $860,000 USD.
