Another ultra-rare Ferrari collectible is up for sale, this time the legendary 967 Ferrari 330 P4 (chassis number 0858) race car that’s set to star at this year’s 'Ferrari Leggenda e Passione' event in Maranello, Italy. The car being sold by RM Auctions is in fact one of just three original P4s built, and was key inspiration for the spectacular Ferrari 612 P4/5 built for classic motors enthusiast James Glickenhaus back in 2006.

Regarded as one of the greatest sports-racing prototypes ever designed by Ferrari, the 330 P4 up for sale has a distinguished racing pedigree including a win at the 1000km Trofeo Filippo Caracciolo in Monza and a third overall finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1967.

The car has been driven by such names as Lorenzo Bandini and Willy Mairesse, while Jackie Stewart and Chris Amon famously took the car to second place in the British BOAC International 500 at Brands Hatch, clinching the World Championship for Ferrari in the process.

The auction will take place on May 17, which incidentally is the first time in 38 years that the car has been put up for sale. During that time it has been under the care of its current owner, and has only been unveiled for a few exclusive events held in the United States.
