1968 Ferrari 330 GT Vignale Shooting Brake

Delivered in December of 1965 to Belgian market dealer, Garage Francorchamps. The first owner of the 330GT 2+2 is recorded simply as, “Desy”, then in 1967 the car was purchased by American Ferrari importer “Coco” Chinetti.This one-off special Ferrari (chassis #7963) was based on the second generation Pininfarina 330GT 2+2 which was slightly damaged in a crash and on the design made by Chinetti Jr. himself. Made its debut at the 1968 Turin Motor Show. It would be Alfredo Vignale's last work: a few days after selling his factory in 1969, he died in a car crash.

This unique car was powered by a 3.9 L V12 engine with an output of 300 hp. From 1998 to 2000, the car was restored, repainted in the original colour of British Racing Green with yellow-bronze roof. The restored interior demonstrated Vignale's sophistication: leather, wood, thick carpeting.and genuine leather seats. In 2011, Jay Kay, British singer and lead singer of Jamiroquai, became the new owner of the car.
