The 365 GT4 2+2 model was announced at the 1972 Paris Salon. Apart from the longer wheelbase and a slightly wider rear track the chassis is virtually identical to that of the 365 GTC/4 model. The engine is also almost identical to that of the 365 GTC/4, with twin overhead camshafts per bank of the 4.4 litre V12 unit, wet sump lubrication, and side draught twin choke Weber 38 DCOE59/60 carburettors. The only notable difference is the provision of a twin coil and rear of engine mounted distributor ignition system, as opposed to the single system fitted to European market 365 GTC/4 models. The complete transmission system is of the same layout as that on the 365 GTC/4, with a lengthened propeller shaft due to the increased wheelbase, and different individual gear and final drive ratios. Similarly the suspension layout is almost identical, including the hydraulic rear self levelling system.

FERRARI 365 GTC/4 £9,970
Chariot of the gods, which ordinary mortals can buy - at a price. Elegance of Pininfarina's coupe coachwork, equipped for fast luxury travel over long distances is combined with the smooth surge of power from Ferrari's light alloy V12 engine with four overhead camshafts and six twin-choke Weber carburettors. The chassis is tubular with ZF limited-slip differential.

Pininfarina shows how to combine superbly elegant lines with reasonable access to a mid-mounted engine. The light alloy V6 engine with four overhead camshafts is mounted transversely in unit with the five-speed gearbox and limited-slip differential. The tubular chassis has independent suspension all round by wishbones and coil springs.

The second series, produced in early 1972, had steel bodies with the aluminium bonnet, boot lid, and doors of the road cars, but with much increased flares to the wheelarches, to accommodate even wider wheels and tyres.
