Ferrari 330 P4 as one of the Maranello's sexiest beasts

~Season Greetings~ Even though it comes from the 1960s era where beautiful classic sports cars triumphed on world racing tracks, the Ferrari 330 P4 of 1967 is still an exotic race car of the Maranello-based automaker with an appearance that seems to mix the design of an airplane with a race car, the Ferrari 330 P4 is not only an attractive car, it is also one of the easiest to drive.

As quoted from Ferrari' sites, the car with styling look very similar to the previous 330 P3 was powered by a V12 engine that had been radically redesigned by Franco Rocchi. The most obvious modification was the introduction of a three-valve cylinder head (two inlet and one exhaust). While its fuel feed was provided by a Lucas injection system.

Meanwhile its chassis was slightly shorter than the 330 P3’s, and the new suspension system improved roadholding. The car won numerous races and earned its place in the history books after a memorable 1-2-3 at Daytona 1967.

However, the Maranello-based premium car manufacturer has only ever made the 330 P4 model as many as 3 units, which are equipped with a V12 engine with a capacity of 3,967 cc (242 CI) and coupled with an addition of the same fuel injection system from the previous P3 model. So made the Ferrari 330 P4 can boost power to 450 hp (335 kW), and can reach a top speed of 210 mph or 338 kph.

According to Nick Longhi, a mechanical engineer and instructor of the Ferrari Corso Pilota who said, “Almost anyone can jump in (this car) and immediately able to drive it. The 330 P4, combined with its high performance and stunning looks, makes it one of the most admired cars in the world.”

Especially, because this Ferrari 330 P4 is the only original version left in the world. Well, here's a video of his appearance from the Petrolicious's YouTube account. Enjoy!
And today, it was from this car that then inspired Ferrari in November 2021 to launch the third car of the Icona series, named the Ferrari Daytona SP3 which was intended to pay homage to the legendary 1-2-3 brilliant winning finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona 1967 that helped earn the marque its unparalleled motor sport status. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FERRARI | SPORTSCARDIGEST ]
