Wonderful car. Looks alot like the 65 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale…60’s er cars really were special….now everything looks alike, no personality.
Does anybody know the name of the song please wich one played at 1:2
Great video of the most beautiful Ferrari sports-racer ever. Period. Nice to see it being driven with a touch of panache. As others have alluded to this is indeed chassis # 0856 owned by Lawrence Stroll – the ONLY completely original Ferrari 330/P4 – in that it’s still in the same bodywork configuration as it last raced: at the BOAC 500 in July ’67 at Brands Hatch. However, there is one gaffe in his commentary that Mark Longhi deserves to be pulled up for. Quote: “I think of the people who have raced them, whether it’s: [b]Mark Donohue[/b], Chris Amon,… Read more »
Strictly speaking David Piper and Pedro Rodriguez were not pilots of the 330 P4 in period. Pedro did race the 350 Can Am which was converted from a P4 and David raced a 412P.
Pedro also raced a P3 and a P3/412P.
While not entirely related to the subject itself, would anyone mind sharing the name of the sound track with me ( and, thus, the entire world) ?
That would the final touch to an already astounding video !
Thanks in advance 😉
Loved the P4 since I saw a black and white of the first one in its Berlinetta configuration, which I still prefer. No matter what body style, it gets my vote for the most beautiful Ferrari ever produced. I can’t understand why it doesn’t bring the kind of money the 250 GTO does, but then P4s aren’t offered for sale very often. However for the guy who will settle for a reproduction, they are available for $500,000. See http://p4bynorwood.com/
I reckon the money thing is because you really need a track to enjoy a P4. If you want you can easily drive a GTO on the street (Nick Mason has often written about taking his kids to school in his) and do event like the Tour Auto, Copper State 1000 etc.
If you do a search on ‘Jim Glickenhau’s or ‘Ferrari 330 P4’ you should find some beautiful shots of his 330 P3/4 that was rebuilt with the aid of the Ferrari factory from the wrecked chassis of 0846. He also has written an article documenting the history of the chassis and offering proof that the parts he purchased were from the scrapped original.
I’m afraid you have been misinformed. The Glickenhaus car is NOT the original P3/4 0846 and there is proof from the man who designed the car, Ing. Mauro Forghieri, of this. The Glickenhaus article regarding his car has been proved to be full of misinformation, misquotations, and misinterpretation. See here: http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=236&t=1417581&i=0&mid=72681&nmt=Forghieri+speaks\%3A+Glickenhaus\%2FPiper+\%230003+is+NOT+P3\%2F4+0846\%2E
Some older photos of # 0856 taken at Monterey in 2004 here:
It looks in pretty much the same super-sano time-warp condition. 😉
This is ART that just happens to have four wheels attached to it.
Geek point from someone who has followed the social media postings of the most famous current P car owner Jim Glickenhaus. The Daytona 24 hour winner was 0846 which is technically a P3/4 not a P4 as it is a P3 chassis converted to take a P4 engine. The second place car is one in the video (and the winner at the Monza 1000KM) and the third place car was a 412P a customer spec P4 with a carb rather than fuel injected engine.
Yes, the Daytona 24 Hours of 1967 was won by 330 P3/4 0846. It was a P3 and in late 1966 it was used as the test bed for the P4 and had many other P4 modifications as well as the P4 engine. The chassis no longer exists as it was destroyed after being burned at Le Mans, 1967 (source ing. Mauro Forghieri – the car’s designer and Chief Technical Director at Ferrari’s Race Department 1961 – 1984). 0858 was the Monza 1000KM winner.
Analogue was just better. Great article.
Great video !!! Filmed at Mont-Tremblant circuit, Quebec,Canada.
Can anybody confirm this is a Lawrence Stroll owned car?
Confirmed. Stroll owned car.
Beautifully shot as always – and with a particularly eloquent commentary this week. Fantastic.
Stunning car and huge thanks to the owner for letting his car be filmed for us to enjoy. I believe this is the second of his cars to be in a Petrolicious video, although he didn’t own the other one at the time that video was shot 🙂
Fantastic. I’ve been waiting for something on the P4.
Excellent commentary from Mr. Longhi.
Love the shot looking forward at the bell housing.
Looks like fun to work on.
Thanks for sharing.
When I went to get speakers for my computer, I splurged a bit for some good’uns, and now I’m glad I did!
When we get to the great garage in the sky this will be the first sound we hear for sure
What an incredible video
This. Is. Amazing. I do not know where you are going next as the bar is now set so high for future films and pieces. Although I suspect next week there will be a video on a small English car pootling around town. And that is why I love this website.
Hey, how did you get a hold of our editorial calendar? 🙂
Wow, great video and narration of an Original car, in sharp contrast to the controversial P4 restoration that Ferrari expert and ex racer David Piper has caused a huge commotion over…
Keep the breathtaking videos coming Petrolicious, great stuff!!!
Marvelous!! Thank you
Yet another mind blowing video to feed my Ferraristi heart! First time a see and hear a P4 in motion…simply stunning. Thank you so much, Petrolicious!
Mont Tremblant is a beautiful circuit in an amazing setting!!! Same it rained last sunday: put a damper on the racing!
Damn I thought it was Watkins Glen for a moment there!
