The Ferrari 330 series consisted of a range of successful models, all powered by the famous V12 Colombo power plant, this time in a 4.0 L configuration. The engine was an evolution of the one in the 400 Superamerica, it was substantially changed, with wider bore spacing and an alternator replacing a generator. The first car in the series was the 2+2 330 America, which was a 250 GTE with a larger 4.0 litre engine. The name 330 refers to the approximate displacement of each cylinder, 12 times that resulting in around 4.0 L. The engine could produce around 300 HP at 6.600 RPM. About 50 cars were built before being replaced by the larger 330 GT 2+2. This replacement, the 330 GT 2+2, was first shown to the world at the Brussels Auto Show, early in 1964. It brought a lot the table and turned out to be much more than a re-engined 250, however, with a sharper nose and tail, quad headlights, and a wide grille. The wheelbase was 50 mm longer, but Koni adjustable shock absorbers improved its handling. A dual-circuit Dunlop braking system was used with discs all around, though it separated brakes front to back rather than diagonally as on most modern systems. In 1965 the Series II version was
