In-game description[]

"Known as the most beautiful machine of the V12-powered P series."


When thinking of Ferrari's motorsports activities, the first thing that comes to mind are their feats in the F1 Grand Prix. However from the 1950's to the 1960's, they also enjoyed great success in sports car racing. Though they withdrew in 1973, the 330 P4 is one car that left its name in history for being the most beautiful machine out of the "P series" V12 midship-engine prototype racers, and left a glorious record from the 60's to the 70's. 330 stands for the displacement per cylinder, in other words signifying a 4.0L engine, and the name stands for the fourth version of the P series.

The 330 P4, debuting in 1967, was developed by improving upon the 330 P3, in order to defeat Ford's GT40 which was on top at the time. Though with the same displacement as the previous version, it was a given a 444 HP engine of an almost brand-new design, with 3 valves per cylinder consisting of two intakes[1] and 1 exhaust on the heads. The nose of the body was slightly extended, and a separate spoiler was added to the rear, to improve its aerodynamic capabilities.

In actual racing, it started off by winning its debut race in the 24 Hours of Daytona, and in the Monza 1000km. Unfortunately it was defeated by Ford in the 24 hours of Le Mans,[2] but it was successful in beating Porsche in the sports car world championships, and became series champion.

There were only four ever produced, including one that was converted from the 330 P3. There was a Berlinetta version for high speed circuits, and a Spider that omitted the roof for weight reduction.
