Ferrari 330 P4 – 1967
The 330 P4 must go down as one of the most revered Ferrari race cars of all time. One of the last Ferrari prototypes that still resembled a sports car, the 330 P4 hit the world sports car stage during one of its most exciting eras. Pitted against the Ford GT40 programme, which had beaten Ferrari at Le Mans in 1965, this V12 powered prancing horse improved upon its 330 P3 predecessor with an all new three valve cylinder head and other significant engine modifications.
Whilst the GT40 brought brute power and strength to the world’s race circuits, Ferrari stuck to their formula of lightweight and smaller engines for prototypes, believing that this package of technical sophistication and sublime handling would outclass the American manufacturer’s torque in the end.
The highlight of the 330 P4’s career was at Daytona where Ferrari placed 1-2-3 at one of the world’s greatest sports car races. It is reputed that until Enzo Ferrari’s death, he kept a photograph of the winning trio on their final lap to victory, so much did this result mean to him. That’s why it must go down as the one of the most revered Ferrari race cars of all time.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the 330 P4 has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:8 scale model is supplied in a luxury black box with a protective outer carrying sleeve. Each model is mounted on a polished black acrylic base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The base holds a booklet containing the certificate of authenticity along with information and collateral material about the car. The model title and original branding is displayed on a polished stainless steel plaque mounted at the front end of the base.
