The Revenge of Il Commendatore

We are familiar with the Ford GT40 beating Ferrari at the 1996 Le Mans.

Interestingly, despite Ford beating Ferrari after a bitter battle, Ferrari produced two of its finest Ferraris.

Ferrari was still as determined as ever, although losing Le Mans the P3 finished first in Belgium.

Following the GT40 beating Ferrari’s 330 P3, it became apparent that Ferrari had to change their strategy and design. The new car named the 330 P4, whilst looking the same as the P3 Ferrari, used an F1 developed with a 4-litre V12 producing 450 bhp.

Ford again triumphed at Le Mans in 1967; however, the Ferrari took first place at Spa Francorchamps on 18 June 1967.

The real triumph for Ferrari was at the 24 Hours of Daytona when a Ferrari P4, a Ferrari 412p and a Ferrari P3/4 passed the winning post simultaneously. This success was known as the Revenge of Il Commendatore (Enzo Ferrari).

The Ferrari 330 was a fighter and was the best-looking race car on the circuit.
