Ferrari’s 330 GT 2+2 model was designed by Tom Tjaarda. Under the bonnet was a powerful 4.0 litre Type 209 V12 Ferrari engine with triple Weber dual-throat carburettors with a power output of 305 hp. This model was distributed by Ferrari’s distributor for East Coast in USA, Luigi Chinetti who knew Enzo Ferrai from a young age (Chinetti was also a race driver who had raced in each and every race of Le Mans between 1932-1953).
"Coco" Luigi Chinetti Jr., son of Luigi Chinetti always wanted to modify Ferrari’s. So "Coco" teamed up with commercial artist Bob Peak and decided to make one. Bob Peak provided the initial sketches and passed them over to Alfredo Vignale of Carrozzeria Vignale, Italy to build one. What rolled out was one of the most fascinating Ferrari cars having shooting-brake^ design.
This car with a 5-speed manual transmission and disc brakes immediately caught the eye of many buyers because of her design. Also instrumental in it’s popularity was the fact that this Alfredo Vignale’s last as 3-days after the model rolled out of his factory, Vignale died in a car crash while driving a Maserati.
After the car passed two hands, it was purchased by Jason Cheetham "Jay Kay", the founding member and lead vocalist of the 1990s acid-jazz / funk-jazz group “Jamiroquai”.
^ a car design that has provision at the rear to keep guns, and other hunting material. Such a car need not necessarily be an estate or a stationwagon.
