Ferrari, 1964, Tipo 209 engine.

This engine was fitted to the new 330GT 2+2 launched at the 1964 Bruxelles Motor Show.

It followed the long series of GT cars, after the 250GT 2+2 but with a slightly longer wheelbase and four headlights instead of two, until 1965.

The engine was still the V12 but with the displacement was increased from 3 liters to 4, gaining 60 more horsepower.
