The Ultimate Gentleman's Grand Tourer Front Engine V12

At the time of its introduction, the 365 GT 2+2 represented significant advances for Ferrari, particularly their 2+2 models. The combination of independent suspension all around for the first time on a 2+2 model and the new torque tube arrangement made the cars quieter, more comfortable, and more capable than ever before. The inclusion of additional convenience and luxury features further enhanced the car's comfort, with standardized power steering and air conditioning. The familiar front-mounted 4.4 liter V12 and attractive Pininfarina styling ensured that the car retained all of the traditional positive Ferrari traits, and authentic Ferrari experience. In all, just 809 Queen Mothers were built, making these cars quite rare as well.

With 52,175 recorded miles, 11745 comes from 35 years of previous ownership and presents well as an ideal driver with a solid body and undercarriage, displaying honest gaps and bones. Older paint is glossy, with minor chips and imperfections in areas – see photos. Correct, polished 15x7.5” Borrani wire wheels compliment with 215/70VR15 Michelin XWX tires (dated 2018). The cabin has been equally well kept and maintained as needed, the front captains chairs and cabin carpeting were once reupholstered. Cold air conditioning and power windows are among the cabin features most revered with the Queen Mother. Other interior equipment includes front seat belts, and older fixed sunroof, and Clarion 5700R radio.

The engine compartment is clean and well-detailed and benefits from recent major service. Its appearance is generally correct with proper finishes, decals and airbox keepers. The numbers-matching engine performs well and sounds amazing, thanks to a recent scheduled service and its full stainless-steel exhaust system. Please note the car does smoke at acceleration, which is a typical sign of worn valve guide seals. A “top-end” inspection and service is recommended.

The neatly trimmed luggage compartment is fitted with a matching spare magnesium wheel, with visible 175707 stamping on the floor. A refined grand tourer for any occasion, 11745 offers an abundance of classic Ferrari V12 rewards of similar Colombo-engined counterparts, along with an arguably more comfortable setting.
