Another classic Ferrari, and it's not red. While wanting to add a 330 GT, I was looking at adding one for a while. There are some nice colors, darker blues and green. They are nice, but maybe too dark.
This on the other hand is bright blue. It also has a giant sunroof. Works well with my quest for unique Ferrari's. This one is modeled after John Lennon's own Ferrari. And that in itself is awesome.

Great choice, that blue really pops. I love this car, very classy but it looks awesome in a brighter color.

Looks great! Don't know if its just pictures, but the quality of chrome on side vents doesn't look all that great for such an expensive piece.
Love the blue.

On most 330 GT's the grille is painted. Only this one as a model has a chrome finish. The details looks the same as those painted. The actual grates, slits, openings are very, VERY tiny. Stylistically, not the biggest fan. But, it appears very accurate.

That is one classy looking Ferrari. The side profile reminds me of the 250 Lusso. I am looking forward to buying the KK-scale version.

Had to look it up, and not just assume it is correct, and of good quality. What do you think?

I don't know if it is the reflection on the model, but it looks like the vents are oriented the opposite way compared to the 1/1 car ?

It's good to see some pictures of this.  It's the best 330 GT available...the KK doesn't look right, the wheels are too small.
It looks very similar (both the 1:1 and the BBR model) to the 250 TDF, which I will post soon.  It has similar vents, which yes, should be more open.

That is just gorgeous. What a striking colour - BBR have done this Ferrari justice (as usual). Superb photography too. I would like to have this model too, but may have the settle for the KK scale offering at my budget.
