Ferrari 330GT Shooting Brake



If you're wealthy, you don't have to settle for a practical car straight from the showroom; why be vulgar in a Range Rover when you could take a proper sports car and make it practical?
The contemporary Bellagio Fastback and the classic Lynx Eventer & Aston Martin DB5 shooting brake demonstrate the effectiveness of bolting a sizeable glasshouse onto a sports car to create a classy estate, but for the true connoisseur, avant garde design and coachbuilding is the only way.
Much like the Panther Daytona, this Ferrari 330GT shows just how far you can go if you have the cash. It's difficult to call it attractive, but you have to admire the audacity of turning such a sylph-like coupe into something so ostentatious. Commissioned by American importer Luigi Chinetti Jr. and built by Vignale, it's now doing rather nicely on the concours circuit, where it presumably delights and irritates the tifosi in equal measure.
