La Ferrari 365 P Speciale Berlinetta Tre Posti del 1966 ha vinto il trofeo Auto&Design al Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2022. Il premio, assegnato dalla giuria, riconosce il miglior design tra i modelli in gara che quest’anno erano circa cinquanta divisi in sette categorie.

The Ferrari 365 P Speciale Berlinetta Tre Posti was the star of the 1966 Paris Motor Show. Designed by Aldo Brovarone for Pininfarina as an experimental car, this fascinating coupe was based on the 365 P2 racing car and was the first mid-engine Ferrari road car. The model cites the lines of the Dino 206 GT Speciale prototype also designed by Brovarone in 1965. Two units were produced: the first for Gianni Agnelli and the second for Luigi Chinetti, Ferrari’s North American official importer at that time.

Long and flat, the car’s tail offered enough space to accommodate the 4.4-liter V12, but the real twist is found in the interior. In fact, the three-seat configuration has the driver in the center position and the two passengers to his right and left, respectively. The example awarded the Auto&Design trophy is in gardenia white with a black interior and remained in the possession of the Chinetti family until 2004.
