There are many beautiful cars in the world, and then there is the Ferrari 330 P4 that outdoes practically all of them. Combining more curves than Christina Hendricks and the singing voice of Adele, it might just be one of the most aesthetically pleasing cars ever made. In its latest video, Petrolicious takes a look at the sole remaining original P4 in existence and talks to the lucky man who gets to drive it.
Ferrari Corsa instructor Nick Longhi has the enviable task about getting behind the wheel of the V12 racer in this video, and he says it doesn’t drive the way you might think. The P4 isn’t out to bite drivers who aren’t paying attention. Instead, he claims that the car just does everything right and helps the person at the controls be that much better.
Historically, the P4 was Ferrari’s attempt in the 1967 season to take on the dominating Ford GT40. The Prancing Horse’s major achievement that year was a 1-2-3 finish in the 24 Hours of Daytona, but it couldn’t quite beat the Ford at the famous race at Le Mans.
Arguably, the later Ferrari 312PB that Petrolicious highlighted a few weeks ago sounds better, but it’s got absolutely nothing on the voluptuously elegant design of the P4. Scroll down to learn about this thoroughbred of a Prancing Horse with some fantastic cinematography.
