Jay Kay’s Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake by Vignale is Up for Grabs

Jay Kay is one of the most famous musicians of the modern era. Besides the critical acclaim for his work with Jamiroquai, Jason “Jay Kay” Luís Cheetham is an avid collector of exotic cars. He owns a Kermit Green LaFerrari and a few other of them Prancing Horses, but this one-of-one Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake with a Vignale couch-built body shell has to go.

Commonly labeled the spiritual successor of the Bizzarrini-designed 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan, the 1967 Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake acts as the FF’s forerunner. One of the most interesting facts about the 330 GT Shooting Brake is that it’s Fredo Vignale’s last Ferrari design penned before his death. Jay Kay owns this Prancing Horse for four years now and he doesn’t actually like the crazy paint job.

But when he saw the car at Goodwood, Jay Kay couldn’t resist those beautiful lines of the last car Vignale ever designed. Fun fact: although the Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake is now in a petrosexual musician’s ownership, this unique machine was a special commission from Luigi Chinetti Jr., the son of an East Coast Ferrari importer and racer. Funny how back in the day the meaning of bespoke was what the label read.

Today, the meaning of bespoke is diluted by personalization programs that offer seas of carbon fiber and many other useless stuff. Wearing original Verde Metallizzato with a repainted Gold hue for the roof sections, this is one of the most documented cars to wear the Ferrari badge. Currently on sale through a dealership called DK Engineering, the Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake can be your for “please enquire.” What that means in plain English is a helluva lot of greenback, probably more than $1 million.

Famous ownership, looks, scarcity, seating for four and huge boot capacity aside, this Ferrari 330 GT Shooting Brake from 1967 is not your typical station wagon. Unless you can name another station wagon animated by a 4-liter V12 with 300 HP driving the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
