Ferrari produced 2 three seaters in 1966 and 1967. The first was delivered to Luigi Chinetti (US Ferrari Distributor) and the second to Giovanni Agnelli (Chairman Fiat). The Chassis numbers are 8815 and 8971. Wheel base is 2600mm. They both have a 4.4 liter 60 degree V12 which produces 380 bhp at 7300 rpm. The engine is dry sump and feed by 3 Weber Carburetors. Claimed top speed is 180 mph. The cockpit is laid out with the driver in the center and the two passanger seat slightly to the rear of the driver on either side. The gear shift is on the drivers right hand side and the cabin roof has a fixed glass sunroof.

Personally I think it is about time they produced a few more. :wink: :wink:

There were also some 330 GTS cars with a wider passenger seat, sometimes called 3 seaters.

How about this: will Ferrari ever come out with a road-going monoposto?
If so, should the engine be in front or behind; and how many cylinders? 8)

I don't think so... a road car should be at least a little practical, and single seater cars won't take you and your girlfriend for a drive to the restaurant, because there is no space for your girlfriend

I would rate the a monoposto as even more unlikely than another 3 posti.

I think a monoposto wouldn´t make sense as a road car, because of the reasons alredy said

the only way to make sense is in a track car like the FXX
