    Revisionist history... Flying Shingle has a more positive connotation. In the 70’s it was the Flexible Flyer.....

    I trust you, at the end of the day nicknames are not the most important thing.

    Someone else asked about transforming the body from Berlinetta to Spyder, Thomas Schnitzler who is in charge of 0872 and with whom I spoke a few days after Retromobile told me it takes very little time, he said the Berlinetta body was already completely off. The car will be run as a Spyder for now -when life returns to normal- as the engine gets better air supply in that body configuration.

    A couple of quick questions:

    David Franklin drove (brilliantly) up the hill at Goodwood in both a Berlinetta and a Spider. Is that 0872 wearing different bodywork?

    Did 0868 become the 512 Speciale?

    There are four complete sets of Spider and Berlinetta bodywork for 0872.
    See also post #80.
    Franklin drove it in both configurations.
    Here he is 15 July 2007 in 0872 at Betzholz, Switzerland.

    0872 looks tiny compared to 0844.

    Does this car has or ever had any sort of grill at the back (between the rear lights), or is it just an open hole?

    This should answer your question.

    Thanks Marcel, that was the "perfect" reply ;)
    I was asking because some model makers make it with a grill (i had never seen before) but i had the idea it was like shown in this picture. This is in my opinion the prettyest sports car ever built.

    Ferrari 312P - reverse engineering and 3D printing
    by Jakob Knabel - May 21, 2014

    The Ferrari 312P is one of the most sought-after cars at auto shows and racing events.

    The P in 312P stands for prototype. Therefore it is almost impossible to get spare parts for the racing legend. Roelofs Parts, a Dutch company specializing in reverse engineering, reconstructed the cylinder head of the 312P together with the German 3D printer manufacturer Voxeljet. To do this, the technicians from Roelofs Parts scanned the inside of the engine with mobile measuring arms, constructed a 3D model and Voxeljet printed a sand mold for casting the cylinder head. This is poured into from the 3D-printed sand mold. In this way, you can get spare parts quickly and cheaply, which are almost impossible to obtain in the normal way or only associated with very high costs.

    Voxeljet Executive Board, Dr. Ingo Ederer:

    Reverse engineering with subsequent 3D printing is by far the most efficient method for replicating parts that are no longer available. It is often the only way to restore certain components quickly and at a reasonable cost. The demand for 3D printing in this area is correspondingly high. We are of course particularly pleased that we have now been able to contribute to the successful engine overhaul of a Ferrari 312P with our technology.
    The Ferrari 312P has 3l displacement, 12 cylinders, 430 hp and weighs only 680 kg. With these key data, he was a real eye-catcher at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1969.

    Marcel,
    As you were there at the Pebble Beach Concours in 2008 in the red cap observing the judges checking out my lights, what was the serial of the 312P next to my car?

    Best regards,

    Robert

    Probably at the Fondation Cartier exposition in Jouy en Josas outside Paris in the eighties, all the Bardinon and Setton Ferraris were gathered there, exceptional...correct me if I am wrong.

    On May 1st, 1998 Pierre Bardinon allowed me to shoot it at Mas du Clos for Cavallino. He and I pushed it past the Le Mans winners etc inches away towards the exit where a special ramp had to be placed to roll a car out.
    It was fantastic to have it to myself for a couple of hours....then when I said I had finished he asked if I wanted an egg:)! It was his way of inviting me for lunch, which we had with his wife, son Patrick and his gf, in a superb kitchen but very simple good food. Then Patrick rode with me as I drove a lap of the circuit in the Peugeot I had used that day.
    A very memorable day!

    Expo Cartier - Jouy en Josas in 1987. I was there to see the most fantastic and beautiful Ferrari collection on earth. The "P" is my favorite. I hope it never gets sold to Monteverde, if you know what I mean... When I visited the colleciton, the little window was open. I put my nose inside. Pedro's ghost was still there.

    Dear Marcel,

    Thank you. I cannot find any photo of my car between the 312 P and the 312 P(B) in one shot. Would have been a classic shot.

    Best regards,

    Robert
