    The 1967 330 P4 designed by Pierre Drogo is my favorite race car. In a word: Pinnacle. Fully handmade, voluptuous and that V12 sound is what Ferrari means to me. Watch the video even though you've seen it likely many times before.

    BB seems to have quite a bit of P4 influence IMO

    It was me: I asked that. Thank you very much for your answer. Ok, maybe you have a relative/friend that works inside the Factory with an important position there.
    Maybe you have a commercial activity in Maranello: e.g. a restaurant, or a bar, or a Ferrari car rent, or an Hotel or something like that. Is that correct?

    ciao


    P4 could be a part of the name…

    ciao

    Last I saw chassis 0856 was owned by Canadian Lawrence Stroll. Others here may have more recent data.

    At this point, I'm actually wonder if this is going to be the car that will kickstart Ferrari's racing programme in the top WEC class...

    Mr. Lauren never had a 330 P4.

    Just realized that only the first part of my previous message got posted. Anyway, it's an idea that started floating around my head when someone (can't remember the name) was told by his dealer that the BB will possibly make its public debut at Le Mans in June. I did wonder if this choice was simply lead by timing or if there was something else behind it. Then, in the past days, FChatter Maximus said that "After several talks with test drivers and higher ranked employees, I do see and hear that Ferrari wants to heavily reinforce it's racing heritage", which could be pushed to the next level with the fabled Ferrari's return in the top WEC class within the new GT1/GTP/Hypercar regulations, still be to set in stone and currently 'at risk' if no manufacturer announce something soon. From what I've read, a technical meeting should happen today (May 16):

    https://www.autosport.com/wec/news/143390/crunch-week-for-wec-roadgoing-hypercar-plan

    "WEC promoter and Le Mans 24 Hours organiser the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and the FIA, who jointly write the rules for the series, will ask manufacturers to pledge to its hypercar concept category at a technical working group meeting in Paris on Thursday."

    Curious to hear what happens next.

    Yes with new 2021 F1 regulations they will have to cut by 50 percents their budget and working forces .
    They will have a lot of people and budget to build a WEC program.

    Imagine Ferrari introducing BB in a new yellow called Giallo Competizione as a homage to 412P 0850...
    Of course the second display BB would be simply Ferrari Rosso.

    NO just my guess at what Ferrari might do to promote the new Big Brother with a racing connection from the past. I would think Mr Manzoni took the opportunity to view that yellow 412P race car on more than one occasion when it was at Ferrari Classiche a couple of years ago.
    There is an endless selection of Giallo choices at tailor made. I can think of two clients; one in the UK and the other in the USA who created a special yellow for their Ferrari autos.

    True, so maybe tailor made can scrounge up a pair of 599 taillights instead... ;)
    Everything is to a larger scale on the new cars vs the old cars to.

    Wow, that’s a big (small) number! Must be electric motors on the front wheels to achieve that

    If true - not necessarily bad. I recall when LaF and P1 were launched I personally felt the P1 had a much more futuristic rear treatment where taillights morphed into led strips behind grilles
