In this video by Loren Doolittle, he talks through the history of this nostalgic formidable race car.
The 330 P4 is a classic sports prototype race car built as part of the Ferrari P series. It was a renowned V12 endurance car that replaced the 1966 330 P3.
Powered by a 4.0L (3,967) Lampredi Tipo 237 V12 engine, which is a revised version of the P3’s engine, the P4 utilizes a new three-valve head and fuel injection. It produces 450 hp (336 kW) and 385 ft·lb (522 N·m). Being a lightweight race car, it weighs only 2271 lb (1030 kg).
The P4 won the 1967 1000 km Monza. Two P4s and one 412 P electrified the racing world when they finished the race side-by-side in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona as revenge against Ford’s symbolic victory at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, where three Ford GT40 Mk IIs crossed the finish line closely together.
