250 GT SWB Berlinetta (Le Mans 1960): A private entry at Le Mans was this car (Ch.#2001GT) owned by Fernando Tavano, which he co-drove with Piere Dumay to 4th place overall and 1st in class at Le Mans in 1960. Designed by the same trio that brought the 250 GTO (Giotto Bizzarini, Carlo Chitti & Mauro Forghieri), the 250 SWB Berlinetta used the 3.0L V12 engine, which produced 276 hp; good for almost 160 mph on the Mulsanne Straight. Its shorter wheel base made it a terrific handling car which dominated GT racing in the early 60's. Homologation of the 250 GT SWB occurred just before Le Mans and there were six cars entered for the race. Tavano took delivery of his car the Monday before the race and it proved to be a both reliable and successful; not only at Le Mans, but the car was actively raced until the mid-60's with many wins during its career.

Years later, Moss was still livid that NART who prepared the car, failed to replace the stock fan with a more robiust racing one. This car Chassis #2735GT is one of the most famous of the 250 GT SWB racers due not only to the drivers of note, but also the on-track success they achieved.

Dino 246 SP (Nurburgring, 1962 - WINNER): The Dino 246 SP was the first mid-engine Ferrari and when introduced in 1960, their performance over the once dominant front-engine Testa Rosas at the Targa Florio was a sign that rear-engined cars were the future. Powered by a bored out F1 engine, the 246 SP had a 2.4L V6 which produced 270 bhp. This car (#0790) which began life as a Ferrari factory race car in 1961 was raced extensively over that season and the next by S.E.F.A.C. Automobili Ferrari, or the factory team. While raced by Ferrari, the car ran at Sebring twice, Le Mans in 1962 and the Targa Florio where it was the outright winner in 1961 with Olivier Gendebien, Ritchie Ginther and Wolfgang Von Trips driving. After a second place finish at the Nurburgring 1000 Km in 1961, Phil Hill and Gendebien won at the Nurburgring in 1962 and this is the livery from that race. The car was sold to Scuderia Sant Ambroeus in 1963 where it was used on the Targa Florio twice more and a handful of other race through the 1964 season.

Model by LOOK SMART 1/18
250 TRI/61 (Le Mans 1961): The 250 TRI/61 was the first racing car developed with the help of Ferrari's new wind tunnel. The latest evolution of the 250 TR and the refinement of the body shape gave the front-engined car a new lease on life. Powered by the evergreen 3.0L V12 the new slippery shape gave the 315 bhp car the ability to hit 170 mph on the Mulsanne Straight. Two new spaceframe chassis were built for 1961 and an older TRI/60 was upgraded to the specifications of the new car. The North American Racing Team in a factory supported effort, raced this car (Ch. #0792TR) the first of the new cars built and which had previously won Sebring (1961).

250 TRI/61 (Le Mans 1961: Mike Parkes and Willy Mairesse drove for Ferrari in 1961 and teamed together to finish 2nd in this car in 1961. Parkes had been recruited to the team with the idea that he would be driving a GT car. Upon arrival at Le Mans, he learned that he would be driving the TRI/61, a car he had never driven. He caught on fast apparently, qualifying the car in 4th position. A balky start saw him towards the rear of the grid, but by the end of the fourth lap, he had passed 40 cars to be near the front of the pack. Near the front is where he and Mairesse kept the car over the next twenty-three hours. They dueled with the N.A.R.T. TR61 for second, but neither car could catch the sister car of Hill and Gendebien which finished first.

250 TRI/61 (Le Mans 1961: When the Rodriguez brothers NART TRI/61 left the race, Parkes/Mairesse took over second place and didn't relinquish that position. It was a 1-2-3 finish for Ferrari, a 250 GT SWB car finishing 3rd. Of the three Ferrari TRI/61's entered at Le Mans in 1961, this car (Ch.#0780TR) was an older chassis which had been updated to TRI/61 specification. It saw additional life after Le Mans, entered and winning the Grand Prix Prescara by Scuderia Centro Sud. It would be updated once again in 1962 and given a new Chassis number (#0808TR) as it was converted to 330 TRI/LM body and specifications.

1962 250 GTO (Targa Florio 1963): The 1963 version of the Targa Florio was destined to be a keen battle between Ferrari and Porsche. Both factories had sent three prototype race cars to fight for all out victory and honors in the Sicilian race. To further hedge their bets, Ferrari supported three private teams running the 250 GTO in the GT 3000 class. This GTO (Ch. #3413GT) which was the factory test car on the Targa the year before, was entered by Scuderia Sant Ambroeus and driven by Gianni Bulgari (the famous jeweler and Maurizio Granna. Both drivers were accomplished road racers. They finished just off the podium in 4th place overall and 1st in class.

1962 250 GTO (Targa Florio 1963): Attrition eliminated the two big bore Ferrari 250Ps, leaving the Dino 196 SP of Bandini/Scarfiotti/Mairesse to dual with the 718 GTR Coupe of Bonnier/Abate. After a race long battle, the Ferrari had a narrow lead in time going into the last lap. The dry day suddenly turned very wet. Mairesse struggled with the rain and open Ferrari, while Bonnier in a coupe was able to close the time gap and take the win for Porsche in one of the closest Targa Florio's. Grana in this 250 GTO was almost able to catch the third place Porsche, finishing down .12 seconds. The Centro Sud 250 GTO finished 6th and the other private GTO finished 8th. In all, a productive day for Ferrari despite the lack of an overall win.

1962 330 GTO (330 LM) (Le Mans, 1962): On the opening lap at Le Mans, Parkes was in a drag race with Graham Hill in the Aston Martin for 1st place down the Mulsanne Straight. Braking late, he ended up in the sandbank at Tertre Rouge and it took 1 1/1/2 hours to dig himself out. Besides being down several laps, the excursion started severe overheating due to a leaking radiator and required several trips to the pits, finally retiring in the 7th hour. The potential of the car resulted in Ferrari creating the 330 LM GT cars in 1963.

1962 330 GTO (330 LM) (Le Mans, 1962): The car was sold after Le Mans to Pietro Ferraro, who in 1963 had the Ferrari factory install a 3.0L 250 P engine and gearbox in the car. It was then sold to Ferdinando Latteri in 1964. He used the car extensively, competing with great success in many Italian hill climb events when it was sold on to the USA in 1967 and has been shown by several owners in concours and historic racing events since. Feet in two worlds, this car is often considered one of the six 330 LMs, as well as one of the 250 GTO production by some. Its designation of 330 GTO, or 330 LM GTO both seem to be correct.

1962 250 GTO (Targa Florio 1963): This Ferrari 250 GTO (#3705GT) was sold new to Jean Guichet in June 1962 and immediately entered in the Le Mans 24-Hours that year. Guichet along with Pierre Noblet would finish 2nd overall and first in class. At the end of 1962, the car was sold to Egidio Nicolosi who successfully drove the car predominantly in hillclimbs. For the 47th running of the Targa Florio in 1963, Nicolsi entered his Ferrari 250 GTO under the name of his racing team, Scuderia San Marco. Driving with local racing hero Luigi Tarmazzo, the pair were pitted against three other GTO's in their class. They would finish 13th overall and 4th in class behind the other GTO's.

OM Fiat Leoncino (Targa Florio 1963): Its inconceivable today that a car worth tens of millions would be carted about the Sicilian countryside on the back of a flatbed truck. However, in the day it was a convenient and efficient way for small races teams to transport their cars. This is a accurate rendition of the OM Fiat Leoncino used by Scuderia San Marco , with a top speed of 48 mph from its 4.6L, 4-cylinder diesel engine, it got there it was going, just not quickly. Nicolosi again entered this car in the Targa in 1964 and brought the car home again in 13th place and 4th in class. The car was sold and eventually ended up in America where it was restored in 1981 and has been used extensively by its owner since 1996.

1963 250 GTO LMB (Le Mans 1963): Luigi Chinetti's North American Racing Team (N.A.R.T.) created a special one-off design which they entered in the 1963 24 Hours of Le Mans and commonly referred to as a 250 GTO LMB. Its design was heavily influenced by the Pinnifarina designed 250 GT Lusso and was similar to the 330 LMB GT/Prototype race cars. Maston Gregory and David Piper drove this car (#4713GT) to a 6th place finish overall and 3rd in class at Le Mans. LMB stands for Le Mans Berlinetta. N.A.R.T. continued to campaign the car in 1964, most notably at Sebring where it was driven by Dick Thompson and Bob Grossman to 15th place.

Ferrari's at Le Mans 1963

1963 330 LMB's (Le Mans 1963): Eleven Ferrari's contested Le Mans in 1963 and six finished, all in the top six places, including the race winning Ferrari 250P. Three of the new 330LMB cars were entered, one by the works team and two private entries by the North American Racing Team and Maranello Concessionaires. Two of the cars retired, but the Maranello car ran a strong race and finished 5th overall and 1st in class. While containing a larger V12 engine that the 250 GTO, the 330 LMB was faster but because it was heavier, not as agile. At Le Mans in 1963, the Maranello Concessionaires 330 LMB finished behild two 250 GTO's (2nd & 4th). 1963 330 LMB (Le Mans 1963): The 330 LMB was constructed on a 400 Super America chassis and given a 4.0L V12 engine which produced 400bhp. Four cars in total were built and three cars were raced at Le Mans in 1963, including this car (Ch.#4381SA), entered by Scuderia Ferrari. At Le Mans practice in April, Mike Parkes drove the car to a 300 kph (186 mph), becoming the first driver and car to achieve that speed at Le Mans. In the race, the car was driven by Pierre Noblet and Jean Guichet, but their previous Le Mans luck did not hold. A mechanic neglected to secure the oil filler cap and they retired in the 8th hour after being in 4th place, with no oil after 25 laps. After Le Mans, the car was converted to an open spyder and had no further race history.

1963 330 LMB (Le Mans 1963): LMB stands for Le Mans Barchetta and this car's design was influenced by Pinninfarina, with Le Mans in mind. It used the 4.0L 12-Cylinder Colombo designed engine, which produces 400 hp. However, they were outclassed by their lighter and nimbler 3.0L cousins, the 250 GTO's. This car (Ch.#4453SA) was purchaseed by Reynolds tobacco heiress Mamie Spears Reynolds and entered and run by Luigi Chinetti's N.A.R.T. team at Le Mans in 1963. Driven by American racing greats Dan Gurney and Jim Hall, it did not finish due to gearbox problems in the 10TH hour, on lap 127. It was raced once more by N.A.R.T. at Bridgehampton before being sold. It went on to race at Sebring and various SCCA races under several owners.

1963 330 LMB (Le Mans 1963): Col. Ronnie Hoare, patron of Maranello Concessionaires purchased this car (Ch.#4453SA) from Ferrari in early June 1963 and collecting it at the factory; drove it to Le Mans. The last of the four 330 LMB's built, it was driven at Le Mans by Jack Sears and Mike Salmon. Despite a leaking water pump and broken hub spline, the pair drove a relatively uneventful race to finish 5th overall and 1st in class behind two 250P's and two 250 GTO's. The car was raced sparingly again after Le Mans, taking the class win at the Guard's Trophy race at Brands Hatch with Lorenzo Bandini driving. It was sold by Maranello Concessionaires in 1964, who by then was favoring racing Ferrari prototypes.

1963 250 GTO (Daytona 3-Hr., 1963): Raced by N.A.R.T. at Daytona and Sebring in early 1963, this GTO (Ch. #4219GT) was driven by Pedro Rodriguez to the winners circle of the Daytona 3-Hour in 1963. After Sebring where it finished 13th, it was sold to Bev Spencer, who painted it white and campaigned the car in a hand full of races in 1963 and 1964. Driven by regular driver Frank Crane, he took 2nd overall and 1st in class in the production car race held in conjunction with the USRRC races at Laguna Seca. He was beaten by a Jaguar E-Type entered by Kell Qvale.

1963 250 GTO (Le Mans 1963): Ferrari entered a brand new 250 GTO (Ch. #4757GT) at Le Mans in 1963, driven by Carlo Abate and Fernand Tavano. They qualified the car in twelfth position and were in third place overall when just after midnight Abate put two wheels on the grass at the White House curves, lost control and crashed the car at speed. It was the only GTO entered to not finish the race. Powered by a 3.0L Colombo V12 engine the 250 GTO was originally designed by Giotto Bizzarini and later development was overseen by Mauro Forghieri, who worked with Scaglietti to continue development of the oval tube frame, alloy bodywork GTO. The 1963 250 GTO's are quickly told apart from the 1962 cars, having three openings behind the front wheels instead of two.

1963 250 GTO (Le Mans 1963): Equipe Nationale Belge also entered this 250 GTO (Ch#4293GT) with Jean Beurlys and Gerhard Langlois doing the driving duty. The 3.0L V12 GTO's were durable cars and the fact that this car finished second overall between a pair of Ferrari prototype cars, indicates the strength and speed of these GT cars. Only 36 cars were made in 62/63.

1963 250 GTO: I first became aware of the Ferrari 250 GTO in about 1964. As a young boy when slot car racing was all the rage and I got my first HO racing set with a 250 GTO in it, I was totally enamored, and still am. This is a slot car from that slot car era, given to me in about 1975-76. Like most enthusiasts, one of my favorite GT cars. I am not sure what if an car in particular this is meant to represent (Team Rosebud in USRRC?) I have just always liked its metallic blue color. Thanks Roger Nicholson!

1963 250 GTO (Goodwood Tourist Trophy, 1963): David Piper replaced an earlier GTO with this car (#4491GT). Purchased in 1963, Piper drove it over the next couple of seasons with great success at some of the greatest race events and tracks. Eventually, Piper modified the car by lowering the roof and modifying the nose. In his iconic green livery, Piper entered the car at the 1963 Tourist Trophy at Goodwood, finishing 5th overall and 3rd in class. Piper drove the car at famed tracks such as Kyalami, Daytona, Nurburgring,Silverstone, Mosport and Brands Hatch to name a few. The car was sold to Peter Sutcliffe and was raced extensively before eventually being restored to its original body and painted red.

1962 250 GTO (Nurburgring 1000 Km, 1963): 250 GTO (Ch. #3909GT) has a rich motorsport career which stretches from 1962 to the present. The car was purchased in 1962 by Edgar Berney and sponsored indirectly by Scuderia Filipinetti. Berney drove the car on the Tour de France in both 1962 & 1963 (DNF's) before it became actively campaigned in GT races by Filipinetti in 1963 through 1965. In 1963, the car was principally driven by Herbert Muller. He was joined at Spa by Jo Siffert where the duo placed 3rd overall. Muller was paired with Heni Walter for the Nürburgring 1000Km round of the World Championship, where after qualifying a promising 5th, the team exited the race after 9 laps with a broken con-rod. The car is in its Nürburgring livery. Its next big races were the Targa Florio in 1964 (10th OA/3rd Class) and 1965 (DNF - accident). The car was sold but Filipinetti in 1965, but continued its racing career primarily in hill climbs, with several class wins. Subsequent owners included Luigi Chinetti and Anthony Bamford, to its present owner John Mozart, who races the car today in vintage events in the USA.

1963 250 GTO/64: (Le Mans 1964): In anticipation of a show down with Ford, Ferrari had a total of 12 entries to contest the prototype and GT classes at Le Mans in 1964. While Scuderia Ferrari concentrated on its new 275P, 330P and 250 LM prototypes, they left the contesting the GT class to privateers like Maranello Concessionaires who entered this car for Innes Ireland and Tony Maggs to drive. Jackie Stewart was listed on the entry but did not drive.

1963 250 GTO/64: (Le Mans 1964): The Ford vs. Ferrari battle for the prototype class and overall Le Mans win did not materialize, with Ferrari taking six of the top ten places. That included a 1-2-3 finish among the prototypes, and three GTO's in the top ten. Ford's lone bright spot was the GT class win, with the Shelby Daytona beating out the GTO/64's for top spot. It was followed by the Equipe National Belge GTO, just ahead of this car which finished 6th overall and 3rd in Class after qualifying in 20th position. 1964 was the last Le Mans for the GTO.

When GT homologation was refused the 250 LM by the FIA, Ferrari tasked Mauro Forghieri and Mike Parkes with designing new bodywork to the GTO. This would allow Ferrari to remain competitive in the GT class another year. Many of the design touches of the Pininfarina styled body of the GTO remained, along with clear 250 LM touches for better aerodynamics, although the performance enhancement was slight. These cars are known as the Series 2 GTO models, or 250 GTO/64's.

1963 250 GTO/64 (Le Mans 1964): Ferrari built three of these new cars and rebodied four older GTO's to the new body style. Still powered by the 3.0L Colombo V12 engine, the GTO/64 was competitive, although Ferrari no longer dominated the GT class. The 250 GTO/64 was the overall winner at Daytona in 1964, its greatest victory. This car (Ch.#4399GT) was sold new to Col. Ronnie Hoare of Maranello Concessionaires in May 1963. It was successfully raced in 1963 before being converted to the GTO/64 rebody by Scaglietti in late 1963. It has had a host of famous hands behind the wheel, including Mike Parkes, Graham Hill, Jack Sears, Mike Salmon and Ludivico Scarfiotti.

1963 250 P: (Le Mans 1963) John Surtees and Willy Mairesse drove this Ferrari entry at Le Mans in 1963 but failed to finish. While leading the race by two laps in the 19th hour, the 250 P caught fire after refueling with Mairesse driving. They were classified in 19th place. It was the closest that Surtees, who set fastest lap that year, would ever came to winning Le Mans.

1963 250 P (Targa Florio 1963): Ferrari was the odds-on favorite to win the 47th Targa Florio in 1963, entering two V12 powered 250P's in the 2.0-3.0L prototype class. They were dominant in the race with the fastest cars and were expected to easily walk away from the Porsche 718 V8 GTR's in the 1.0-2.0L class. This car was driven by John Surtees and Mike Parkes, with the other 250P driven by Scarfiotti and Mairesse. One of the earliest 250 P's (Chassis #0810), this car won Sebring in 1963 and finished 3rd at Le Mans later that year. It was sold to N.A.R.T. who would campaign the car in USRRC Races, winning the GP of Canada and at Bridgehampton. It would be raced again at Sebring and Le Mans in 1964 and raced into the 1965 season by Scuderia Bear.

1963 250 P (Targa Florio 1963): The fast start of the 1963 Targa Florio saw the 250P of Scarfioltti dead even with Parkes driving this car. Trailing in 3rd was the Porsche 718 of Bonnier/Abate. In the opening laps, Parkes set the fastest lap of the 10 lap race on the 44.7 mi. circuit as his car took the lead while the sister car floundered with fuel delivery problems and eventually retired. With Surtees at the wheel, still in the lead by over a minute on Lap 5, he left the road and split the fuel tank. Both large engine Ferrari's now out, the Porsche hung on to win by 11 seconds over the Dino 196SP of Bandini/Mairesse/Scarfiotti.

1963 250 P: Ch.#0812 started out as a factory race car and had long career and a particularly successful one at Sebring. In 1963 it finished 2nd, was the outright winner in 1964 and was 8th overall at the rain soaked 12 hour race in 1965 when it was raced in this livery. It was driven by Umberto Maglioli and Giancarlo Baghetti, who drove under Kleiner Racing's entry of N.A.R.T.'s car. It was one of several privateer entries that year under the Ferrari Racing Association banner, a thinly disguised attempt by Ferrari to get around his 'boycott' of Sebring that year.

1963 250 P (SEBRING WINNER 1963): John Surtees and Ludovico Scarfiotti took this 250 P (#0810) to a win at the Sebring 12 Hour race on its maiden outing in 1963. It was also the first race run under FIA’s new Manufacturer’s Championship rules. Overcome by exhaust fumes and fatigue, Surtees passed out during the Winners Circle celebration. The car was never off the podium in the races it finished in that year. It was upgraded to a 330 P for the 1964 season and campaigned by N.A.R.T.

1963 250 P: In a race that would see rain, sleet, hail, cold winds, as well as sunshine, the Nurburgring 1000km in 1963 saw heavy attrition among the 92 entries. Ludovico Scarfiotti and Mike Parkes drove this 250 P for Ferrari and were second on the grid next to teammates Mairesse and Surtees. Getting an early lead, Scarfiotti handed off to Parkes who slid on the slippery Aremberg hairpin, sliding off the road and hitting a stone wall; thereby ending their race. Their teammates would go on to win. This 250 P (#0810) was the 1963 Sebring winner and finished 3rd at Le Mans that year. It was sold to N.A.R.T. after Le Mans and they successfully competed with it into the 1964 season. It was given the larger 4.0L V12 engine and the 330 P designation in 1964 and into 1965 as it was raced by Scuderia Bear (Ferrari Owners Racing Assoc.).

1964 275 P: The Ferrari 275P loaned to the Kleiner Racing Team (finished 8th) at Sebring in 1965 and then was entered by N.A.R.T. for Mario Andretti to drive this car (#0812) at the Bridgehampton 500 Km. Qualifying sixth, Andretti’s race ended at the sand swept 2.85 mile circuit on New York’s Long Island with a broken gearbox while in 4th on lap 70. Andretti was making his road racing debut after having taken Rookie of the Year honors at Indy earlier in the season. It was the final race for this car which started life as a factory 250P in 1963 before being upgraded to 3.3L V12 275P specs in 1964. It was raced at Sebring three times in 1963 (2nd), 1964 (win) and 1965 (8th). It was also raced by Ferrari at Le Mans in 1963, but did not finish.

1963 275 P (Chassis #0814) entered at Sebring in 1965 by Ed Hugus on behalf of the Ferrari Owners Racing Assoc. Both Ferrari and NART boycotted Sebring in 1965 over a regulation dispute which allowed both prototype cars and large-displacement sports cars to race in the same event. This allowed big block American cars such as the Chaparral, Cobra and Ford GT40's to compete, which Enzo was set against. Instead Ferrari allowed private owners to run with indirect factory support. This car was the winner of Le Mans in 1963 in 250 P configuration, driven at Sebring by Hugus, Tom O'Brian, Paul Richards and Charlie Hays finished the race in 12th place.

1964 275 P (1964 LE MANS WINNER): At the end of the 1964 version of Le Mans, Jean Guichet and Nino Vacarella were on the podium (Ch. #0816). It was Ferrari's 5th win in a row at Le Mans. The 275P had a slightly larger engine (3.2L) than the 250P (3.0L) and produced 320 hp. This car won Le Mans in 1963 as a 250P. The design of these cars makes them my favorite of any Ferrari sports racers.

The 312 P, 412 P & 612 P Can Am Cars
1967 412 P: Pedro Rodriguez and Jean Guichet drove this North American Racing Team entry to third place at Daytona in 1967. The 412P was the designation given to 330 P4 cars which were not factory entries. Luigi Chinetti's N.A.R.T. featured prominently in the success of Ferrari racing. This car (Chassis #0844) started out life as a factory 330 P3 and won at both Monza and Spa in 1966.

1967 412 P: (Le Mans 1967) Jean Guichet and Herbert Muller did not finish the 1967 Le Mans in the Scuderia Filipinetti entry, (Chassis #0848). Privateers like the Swiss Filipinetti team in 1967, were offered the 330 P3/4, also known as the Ferrari 412P. These were 330 P3s brought up to 330 P4 specifications, though they had Weber carburetors rather than fuel injection and continued with an updated version of the P3 gearbox.

1967 412 P (Spa 1000 Km, 1967): Richard Attwood and Lucien Bianchi drove the Maranello Concessionaires entry to 3rd place at the Spa 1000 km in 1967 in this livery. Attwood and Piers Courage also drove the car (Ch. #0854) at Le Mans in 1967, but failed to finish. The car was sold to David Piper who was highly successful with the 412 P.

1967 412 P (Targa Florio, 1967): Chassis #0848 started like as a works Ferrari team car and was primarily driven by Mike Parkes along with Ludovico Scarfiotti. They won the races at Monza and Brands Hatch in 1966 before having their run at Le Mans ended by an accident. The car was reconfigured to 412P specification and sold to Scuderia Filipinetti for the 1967 season. Driven by Herbert Muller and Jean Guichet the best finish was at Monza. Entered in the 51st Targa Florio in this livery, the pair retired on Lap 7 of 10 with a broken differential, but not before Muller set fastest lap of the race at an average 116.285 KPH (72.3 MPH).
Model by BANG 1/43
1967 412 P (Targa Florio, 1967): Ferrari 412P were 330 P4 cars that were made for select customers without fuel injection. Like all but two 412Ps, this car was made from a converted earlier 330 P3. Down about 30 HP to the factory cars, Ferrari wanted customers to win points but not outplace the factory cars. Besides Porsche, there was formidable competition from Alfa Romeo, Ford and Chaparral. On the 1967 Targa Florio, this car pressed the works car of local ace Vaccarella who was leading when he hit a curb in Colaesano, ending his race. A broken differential bevel pin put this car driven by Muller and Guichet out on Lap 7, handing victory and first three places to the Porsche 910s . Ironically, Muller had won for Scuderia Filipinetti in a Porsche in 1966.
Model by BANG 1/43
1967 412 P (Le Mans, 1967): Visually, the Ferrari 330 P4 and 412P were almost identical, but the 330 P4 was retained by the factory for its racing entries in 1967, customers receiving the 412P. The 4.0L engine in the 412P was the same as the earlier 330 P3 factory cars but did not have fuel injection. Instead, they had two Weber carburetors and 24-valve heads. Both the earlier P3 and 412P used the same chasis. Like all but two 412Ps, this car was built from an earlier 330 P3 chassis. Maranello Concessionaires entered this car (Chassis #0854) at Le Mans for Richard Attwood and Piers Courage to drive. Their race ended just after dawn when a faulty oil pump allowed the engine to run dry.

1967 412 P (Le Mans, 1967): Maranello Concessionaires was/is the Ferrari distributor in the UK, and campaigned Ferrari's with great success at all the major European races in the 1960s. Ferrari entered eight prototypes at Le Mans, three being 412Ps entered by Maranello, joined by other private entries from Scuderia Filipinetti and N.A.R.T. The 412P was down 30hp to the factory 330 P4s (450hp), which were not as fast as the 7.0L Fords. Like the 330 P4, the 412P received the new Ferrari designed transaxles, intended to be stronger and durable in an attempt to out survive the Fords. They came close.

1967 412 P (Mugello, 1967): Scuderia Filipinetti entered this 412 P for the race at Mugello in 1967, with Mario Casoni and Herbert Muller driving. Unfortunately for Muller, Casoni went off course on the first lap, breaking the cars suspension and resulting in its retirement. Beginning life as a factory 330 P in 1966, Ch. #0848 ran at Le Mans with Mike Parkes and Ludovico Scarfiotti driving. There race ended in an accident with a slower car after 1213 laps. After Le Mans, the car was converted to 412 P specs and sold to Scuderia Filipinentti.
Model by MG MODELS 1/43
1967 412 P (Mugello, 1967): Run by Scuderia Filipinetti in endurance races in 1967, it ran at Monza (4th), the Targa Florio and Le Mans, where it failed to finish. In this livery, the car ran at Mugello, which was run on roads in the mountains north of Florence. Like the Targa Florio, the race was run against the clock in the heat of July over 8 laps of 41 miles (66 Km). The only Ferrari prototype entered against the stiff Porsche and Alfa competition, its early exit handed the win to Porsche. It was only ran again in a couple of hillclimbs after, taking a class win on its last race.

1967 412P: (Le Mans 1967) This car (#0844) was upgraded to 412 P specifications for the 1967 season. It was campaigned by Ferrari in 1966 as a 330 P, winning at Monza and Spa. It was also raced at Le Mans (DNF) and finished 3rd at Daytona in 1967 with Pedro Rodriguez at the wheel. Rodriguez and Giancarlo Baghetti drove this N.A.R.T. entry at Le Mans in 1967, but failed to finish with piston failure in the 11th hour.
Model by EDICOLA 1/43
1967 412P Can Am: Ludovico Scarfiotti drove this car (Ch. #0844) entered by the North American Racing Team (NART), to a 7th place finish at the Bridgehampton Can-Am in 1967. Starting out life in 1966 as a 330 P3 campaigned by Ferrari at Spa, Nurburgring and Le Mans before being converted to a 412P. NART ran the car at Daytona, Monza and Le Mans before taking the top off and running two races in the Can-Am series.
Model by MG MODELS 1/43
1968 612P Can Am: Raced in the Can Am serieis from 1968 to 1971, the 612 P produced 660 bhp from its 6.2L V12 engine. Chris Amon drove the car in 1968 and 1969 with promise, scoring three podium finishes in 1969, but usually a DNF with engine problems. A lack of funds hampered the cars development and in 1970 the car was sold to Earle-Cord racing who soldiered on with the car until the end of the 1971 season.
Model by EDICOLA 1/43
1969 312P Coupe: (Le Mans 1969) Ferrari returned to sports car racing in 1969 with the 3.0L 312P, which used the F1 Ferrari 312 engine, tuned for endurance racing and producing 450 bhp. Starting out life as a spyder, for Le Mans in 1969 it was converted to a coupe to match its sister car and for better aerodynamics. This car (Ch. #0870) was qualified 5th by Pedro Rodriguez and co-driven by David Piper. They failed to finish due to gearbox woes.
Model by BEST 1/43

1969 312 P Coupe: (Le Mans 1969): One of three 312Ps built by Ferrari to contest the World Sportscar Championship, this car (Ch. #0872) was the third of the three cars built and the only one originally configured as a coupe. Its maiden race outing was at Le Mans in 1969, where it was driven by Chris Amon and Peter Schetty. Amon qualified the car 6th on the grid. Ferrari had originally entered 312P Chassis 0868 for Le Mans, which was destroyed at Monza just before Le Mans. So, Ferrari gave that chassis number for Le Mans to match the entry paperwork. Its identity was restored after Le Mans, but it does create some confusion. Ch. #0868 went on to be sed for the Pininfarina 512S Speciale show car.
Model by BEST 1/43
1969 312 P Coupe: (Le Mans 1969): Chris Amon started the race and on the opening lap while following John Woolfe in his Porsche 917, got caught up in Woolfes terrible accident on the Mulsanne Straight. The burning gas tank from the 917 became lodged under Amons Ferrari and started the Ferrari ablaze. Quick thinking by Amon activated the on-board fire system and saved the car from being destroyed. A week after Le Mans, Fiat bought their controlling interest in Ferrari and Enzo Ferrari scrapped the 312P program in favor of developing the 512. This car was sold to N.A.R.T. who campaigned the car in North America and again at Le Mans in 1970 (car #57). It was converted to 312PB spyder bodywork and raced at Daytona and Sebring in 1971.
Model by BEST 1/43

1969 312 P (Sebring, 1969): Mario Andretti and Chris Amon drove this 312 P (#0868) to 2nd place and a class win at the Sebring 12 Hours in 1969. During the 1969 season, the appearance of the Porsche 917 had made clear that only a similar new 5-litre car would be able to challenge it. Ferrari dropped development of the 312 P in favor of the 512. At season end, the remaining cars were sold to NART, who raced a 312P at Le Mans in 1970 but failed to finish.
Model by BEST 1/43
1969 312 P (Brands Hatch, 1969): Chris Amon and Pedro Rodriguez finished 4th at the BOAC 500 mile race at Brands Hatch in 1969. This was the best finish for the 312P spider, basically a Fearrari 312 F1 car with bodywork. This is again Chassis #0870. The 312P was fast and agile, with Amon setting pole at Monza. Ferrari just did not put enough effort into making these fast and nimble cars reliable so it could win the races it started. This car ran at Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans.
Model by FR. DINKY 1/43.
1969 312 P (Monza, 1969): Engine problems forced Chris Amon and Mario Andretti out of the fourth round of the World Sports Car Championship at Monza in 1969, after Amon had taken pole position. Using the 3.0L F1 engine, the 312 P was configured for Group 6 prototype racing. The handwriting was on the wall, the Porsche 917 was coming into its own and a 5.0L car would need to be built to compete. The 312P was raced one season with three cars being built, giving way to the 512. This is Chassis #0870.
Model by BEST 1/43.
1969 312 P (Sebring, 1970): This is Chassis #0870 as it raced at Sebring in 1970. It was piloted by Tony Adamowicz and Luigi Chinetti, Jr., although they failed to finish the race due to overheating. Raced at Le Mans in 1969 by the Ferrari factory with open bodywork, it was converted to a closed car with N.A.R.T.'s ownership. They took the car back to Le Mans in 1970 where it was a space car, but not driven during the race..

1969 312 P (Monza 1000 Km, 1969): The 1000 Km of Monza in 1969 was a show down between Ferrari and Porsche, with the later hoping to increase their position in the top tier of racing superiority. Ferrari were not resting on their laurels, bringing out the new 312P using the 3.0L V12 of the F1 cars. Mario Andretti and Chris Amon would pilot this car (Ch. 0870) at Monza, backed by Rodriguez and Schetty in the other Ferrari entry. Porsche would be there with five 908s, the fastest being that of Redman and Siffert. Eighty entries clamored for the fifty-two spots on the grid, the factory Ferraris and Porsches being the fastest, with Lolas, Matra, Alpine , Ford and Alfa Romeo looking for the leaders to falter and claim the spoils. Andretti set the pole position for what would be an exciting race.

1969 312 P (Monza 1000 Km, 1969): At the start, Andretti, Siffert and Rodriguez jumped out to an early lead over the pack and continued to swap the lead as they reached 170 mph at the end of the banked sections of the Monza track in close formation to each other. At 140 Km, Andretti had to pit in the lead car, suffering a rear tire failure. He rejoined the race in 6th place and by 300 Km had closed in on the two lead cars, taking the lead after those cars pitted for fuel. Just after the driver change to Amon, the engine of the Ferrari blew on Lap 40, their race in this car over. Rodriguez/Schetty and Siffert/Redman continued to contend with each other for the lead until Rodriguez spun trying to avoid a slower car, which resulted in damage that eventually retired the car. This handed the race win to Redman and Siffert, an important win for Porsche.

1969 312 P (Monza 1000 Km, 1969): Ferrari made three 312Ps to contest for the World Sportscar Championship in 1969. The svelte bodied car was in reality a barchetta bodied F1 car, powered by the 3.0L DOHC, 42-valve V12 F1 engine, producing 450 HP. This car (Ch.#0870) started life as a factory spyder running at Monza, Spa (2nd) and Nurburgring 1000 Km events before being converted to a berlinetta for Le Mans in 1969 (DNF). As Ferrari turned their sports prototype attention to the 512, the car was sold to N.A.R.T. in late 1969 and they campaigned the car in N. America at Daytona (5th), Sebring, Le Mans (spare car) and in some Can Am races in 1970 before the car was sold off to a private party. Pictured is the race debut of the car at Monza in 1969.
1969 312 P (Le Mans, 1970): After withdrawing from the World Sportscar Championship in 1969, Ferrari sold the three factory 312 Ps to Luigi Chinetti to campaign in Group 6 under his North American Racing Team (NART) banner. This car (Ch. #0870) which was originally a open spyder before being converted to a coupe, was campaigned by NART in 1970 alongside their new 512 S cars. Qualified at Le Mans by Sam Posey, his co-driver Francois Migaurt was to bring sponsorship for his drive. That deal fell apart at the last minute and the car did not start the Le Mans race. After Le Mans, the car was sold to a buyer in France.

1969 312 P: (Le Mans, 1970) Starting out as a Ferrari team car at Le Mans in 1969, this 312P (#0872) was sold to the North American Racing Team which campaigned the car at Daytona (4th) and Sebring (6th before Le Mans in 1970. Tony Adamowicz and Chuck Parson drove at Le Mans in '73, After being placed as high as 6th, a persistent engine misfire caused them to miss the minimum distance requirement and they were unclassified at the finish.
Model by BEST 1/43
1969 312 P (Daytona, 1970): Mike Parkes and Sam Posey drove the N.A.R.T. entry of 312 P (#0872) to 4th place overall and 1st place in the prototype class at Daytona in 1970, with its sister car finishing 5th. As previously noted, this car has extensive racing history as part of the North American Racing Team at Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring. At Le Mans in 1970, the car was pushed over the finish line by fans after it died on the cool down lap.
Model by BEST 1/43
1969 312 P (Sebring, 1970): Continuing on its racing career under N.A.R.T. ownership, this former factory car at Le Mans was raced at Sebring in 1970 by Mike Parkes and Chuck Parsons, they placed 6th. Raced extensively by N.A.R.T, this 312 P posted class wins at Daytona in 1970 & 1971. It was eventually converted to an open car.
Model by BEST 1/43
1969 312 P: (Le Mans, 1974) After this 312P (#0872) raced at Le Mans in 1970, N.A.R.T. removed the coupe roof and turned it into a spyder. It was raced for the final time at Le Mans in 1974, with Jean-Claude Andruet & Teodoro Zeccoli driving. They finished 9th overall and 6th in class. This was the third Le Mans 24 hour race for this car and soon after, the 3.0L V12 engined race car was retired.

PLEASE NOTE: From 1968 into the 1990's tobacco companies sponsored many significant race cars. We don't promote tobacco use, rather we stronly discourage it. However, we do promote historical accuracy, Old Irish Racing chooses to display models in our collection as historically accurate as possible. While seeing a tobacco advert on a car gives me no more desire to go smoke than seeing a car makes me want to go suck on its exhaust pipe. If tobacco (or alcohol) adverts on race cars offend you, please go look at nice pictures of bunnies and kittens on another site. Thank you!
