Ferrari 330 P4

The 330 P4 was developed as a mid-engined endurance car to replace the 330 P3 race car. After Ford destroyed Ferrari with its 1-2-3 finish at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, it was the 330 P4 that got the Italians revenge when it recorded a 1-2-3 finish at the 1967 24 Hours Of Daytona. Enzo Ferrari kept a photo of the finish until his death. Three chassis, numbers 0856; 0858 and 0860 were originally made and raced as closed coupes. These were all converted into spyders.
The world is left with one P4 in its original configuration; chassis 0856 is among the most valuable cars in the world.

Imported into the US by official West Coast distributor Modern Classic Motors in Reno, Nevada, the Ferrari was originally retailed via Newport Imports in Newport Beach, California, for $29,665.
