Ferrari 330P4


Fujimi Ferrari 330 P4 V12 Endurance car

Introduction

1967 was a banner year for the Enzo Ferrari motor company, as it saw the production the mid-engined 330 P4, a renowned V12 endurance car meant to replace the previous year's P3.

Only four Ferrari P4 engined cars were ever made: one P 3/4 and three 330 P4's. Their 3-valve cylinder head was modeled after those of Italian Grand Prix-winning Formula One cars. To this was added the same fuel injection system from the P3 for an output of up to 450 hp (335 kW).

The P 3/4, one of the P4's, and one 412P electrified the racing world when they crossed the finish line together (in first 0846, second 0856, and third place 0844) in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona, for a photo finish to counter Ford's photo of the Ford GT 40 MK II's crossing the finish line together First, Second, and Third at Le Mans in 1966.

The model

The model is the Fujimi kit – built out of the box.  The car represents the vehicle that placed second in the 1967 24 Hours of Le mans.
