Decades in the making!
For those who enjoy classic GT racing, this one is not like the others. Enzo Ferrari chose to only build four 330 LMBs for competition. The notion of racing a 2+2 seemed superfluous given the performance of Ferrari’s 2-seater cars. Nevertheless, a group of talented coachbuilders has spent a few years building this tribute car. Its almost the same motivation our friends at Manhattan Motorcars devote to their Ferrari 250 builds.
After carefully scanning the blueprints from Chassis 4725, they were ready to build new examples of even the smallest details. The 330 LMB was Ferrari’s ultimate LeMans Berlinetta. Having a longer wheelbase makes it stable above 150 mph, as power comes from a modern take on the classic Columbo V12. They started by building a replica chassis for a 250 GTO before stretching it to make room for the rear seats. Car #4275 resides in Manhattan, so the team traveled to the Big Apple a few times to build cardboard templates of the only Right-Hand Drive 330. Did they get it right?
