Based on the magnificent styling of the 330 P3 with a slightly shorter chassis, with the P designating Ferrari sports prototypes produced during the 1960s and 1970s. The P4 was introduced in 1967 and featured a 4.0L V12 engine redesigned by Franco Rocchi and delivering 450hp while weighting only 792kg!
The engine redesign featured a three-valve cylinder head derived from Ferrari’s Grand Prix-winning Formula One cars, and the suspension was improved compared to the P3 version. Regarding the design, well, it speaks for itself and is in our opinion an absolute masterpiece!
It marked the brand and the Motorsport history by having three cars crossing the finish line together at the 24 Hours of Daytona 1967, just like Ford did the previous year with the GT40 at Le Mans.
Only 4 were ever made, including one on an ex P3 chassis which was cancelled by Ferrari after it has been damaged at Le Mans in 1967. Two were converted into 350 Can-Am’s, and one belongs to Ferrari collector Lawrence Stroll and remains in its original condition.
