About the Ferrari 312P Spyder, Sebring… “Due to a change of rules, Ferrari found itself devoid of a car suitable for the 1968 season of international sports car racing. Much to the surprise of the international racing world, however, by the end of 1968, the Scuderia had come up with a prototype 312P for the 1969 season.

The first sports car that they built for the forthcoming races had an open-top Spyder body and a twelve-cylinder, three-litre engine with a maximum output of 420 hp. A showdown came on March 31, 1969, when the 312P was pitted against hotly-favored rivals, such as the Porsche 908, Ford GT 40 and the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 at the world-famous 12 Hours of Sebring endurance race. Eventually the 312P team of Chris Amon and Mario Andretti clinched an impressive second place in the overall standings and one class victory.”
