1971→1973 Ferrari 365 GTC/4

1971 Ferrari 365 GTC/4

Debuting at the Geneva Motor Show of March 1971, the 365 GTC/4 was intended to strike a middle ground between Ferrari’s outgoing four-seat 365 GT 2+2 and the concurrent 365 Daytona.

The GTC/4 is generally acknowledged to be a genteel around-town Ferrari yet is capable of an impressive top speed of 163 mph.

With only 500 examples produced over a two-year period, the 365 GTC/4 was manufactured in less than one-third of the quantity of the Daytona, giving it the edge over its esteemed stable mate in rarity.
