    P4 was unique having, after modification by Ferrari for the race season, a P3 chassis with a P4 engine. All of the P3 chassis were made in at the same time but because of labor strikes only three of the five P3 chassis were built up into cars in For the season, Ferrari developed the P and P. He would be proven wrong.

    The Ferrari P was a series of Italian sports prototype racing cars produced by Ferrari during the s and early s. Although Enzo Ferrari resisted the move even with Cooper dominating F1, Ferrari began producing mid-engined racing cars in with the Ferrari Dino -V6-engine Formula Two , which would later be turned into the Formula One -winner of Sports car racers followed in Although these cars shared their numerical designations based on engine displacement with road models, they were almost entirely dissimilar.

    The first Ferrari mid-engine in a road car did not arrive until the Dino , and it was before a Ferrari cylinder engine was placed behind a road-going driver in the GT4 BB.

    Ferrari produced the P in in response to the FIA introducing a prototype class for the upcoming season of the World Sportscar Championship. This was a new design, with a chassis unrelated to existing -series Grand Touring cars. Designed by Mauro Forghieri , the P was an open cockpit mid-engined rear wheel drive design , utilizing a tubular space-frame chassis, double wishbone suspension , rack and pinion steering, four wheel disc brakes and a longitudinally-mounted V12 engine with a 5-speed gearbox and transaxle.

    The Testa Rossa -type single-cam 3. This was the first time a V12 engine was mounted in the rear of a Ferrari sports racing car.

    In total Ferrari produced four P chassis serial numbers , , and and one development mule based on a Dino SP chassis number For the season, Ferrari developed the P and P. These were improved versions of the P with larger displacement engines and slightly modified bodywork.

    The tubular space-frame chassis and most other components remained the same as in the P. The P used a bored-out 3. The P used a different design, a 4. Some drivers preferred the extra power of the P while others appreciated the more nimble feel of the P and the two models were raced concurrently. It is not possible to clearly determine the number of chassis produced with each engine type as and engines were swapped as needed between cars.

    It was developed as a coupe version of the P and was ostensibly a new production car intended to meet FIA homologation requirements for the Group 3 GT class. However, in April the FIA refused to homologate the model, as Ferrari had built considerably fewer than the required units. The LM thus had to run in the prototype class until it was homologated as a Group 4 Sports Car for the season.

    According to Ferrari naming convention, the 3. The LM shared fully independent double wishbone suspension , rack and pinion steering, four wheel disc brakes and 5-speed transaxle with the P, however the tubular space frame chassis was significantly strengthened with the roof structure, additional cross-bracing and heavier gauge tubing. The interior was trimmed out as a nod to the ostensible production status of the car, but ultimately it was little different from a prototype racer.

    The LM was successfully raced around the world by both factory-supported and privateer racers. This remains Ferrari's last overall victory in the endurance classic. The LM is highly sought-after by serious auto collectors and individual cars are often featured at auctions, car shows and historic racing events. Two entirely new cars, the P2 and P2, followed in The P2 cars were replaced by the P3 for In Ferrari upgraded their P2 cars with new bodywork by Piero Drogo.
