365 GTS by Pininfarina





The 330 GTC and GTS were replaced in 1968 by the 365 GTC and GTS While the 365 GTS retained similar styling to the 330 GTS it replaced, the 365 GTS was much improved mechanically over the 330 GTS, and it was the most technologically advanced open Ferrari to date. Its introduction brought with it the regular production of the excellent 4.4-liter V-12 that was first seen in the limited-production 365 California. With a single overhead-camshaft per bank and triple Weber carburetors, the 365 V-12 could produce a respectable 320 horsepower, which was an increase in 20 horsepower over the 300-horsepower V-12 of the 330 GTS. The car was fitted with the excellent five-speed manual and the independent rear suspension with Löbro halfshafts of the 365 GTB/4 Daytona, as these components were sufficiently up to the task of the higher-horsepower 365 engine and were considered to be a substantial technical improvement over the 330 GTS.The styling remained almost unchanged: on both body styles differences were limited to vents moved from behind the front wheels to the bonnet.

Integrating the gearbox with the final drive gave these cars a balanced 50:50 weight distribution. The 365 GTC and GTS retained the independent rear suspension, employing coil springs and wishbones, of its immediate predecessor, though this was a relatively recent departure for Ferrari. Brakes were servo-assisted discs all-round with a split circuit system.

150 examples of the coupé were built (including 22 in right hand drive) between the 1968 and 1970. It was replaced by the Ferrari 365 GTC/4. Just 20 spiders were built before its place was assumed by the 365 GTB/4-based Daytona Spider.
