Gooding & Company a.k.a. the official auction house of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance announce that next month they will present a bespoke 1966 Ferrari 365 P Berlinetta Speciale. The special vehicle is also known as the Tre Posti due to the fact that it offers a front three-seat layout and was created by Enzo Ferrari, Sergio Pininfarina and Luigi Chinetti.

Showing a Gardenia White exterior colour with black upholstery and bright red carpets, as well as the distinctive moon roof, the 1966 Ferrari 365 P Berlinetta Speciale was driven for just 7,900 km and has been consigned for auction directly from the Chinetti Family.

365 P Berlinetta Speciale was created at the height of the P car program in 1966, features the chassis number 8971 and it is the first mid-engine 12-cylinder vehicle from Ferrari that was designed specifically for use as a road car.

Based on the Ferrari 365 P2, the 365 P Berlinetta Speciale is the last car made by Pininfarina for a private client. According to the official press release, the special Ferrari was unveiled at the 53rd International Paris Motor Show and made a global tour in 1966 and 1967 at the key auto shows in Brussels, London and Los Angeles.

David Gooding, President: "The Tre Posti stands alone. This work of automotive art represents the ultimate in 1960s sports car design. In my opinion, Tre Posti is an extraordinary coachbuilt tour de force and by all respects one of the most important and valuable Ferraris ever designed. Its competition underpinnings and special provenance make it one of the finest Ferraris in existence." [source: Ferrari]
