How To Make A Replica So Good That Ferrari Approves Of It


Yes it's that good.

An incredible 1967 Ferrari 330 P4 recreation has just appeared for sale in San Francisco. The car was custom built by an expert father and son team at Jim Carpenter's Italian Design & Racing who have a solid reputation for building custom spec Ferraris. The 330 P4 project pays homage to the original #23 Ferrari P4 that won the 1967 Daytona 24 Hour race. Although the car is a replica, it is actually based on a donor 1965 Ferrari 330GT. The Carpenter team added a race exhaust with silencers to the original 4.0-liter Ferrari engine that produces 340 hp.

The engine is mated to a G50 5-speed manual transmission that easily handles the power output. The body was built entirely from hand laid carbon fiber, kevlar and fiberglass composite. The car also features a custom built suspension that combines a mix of modified 308 components with specially designed pieces. The replica is so good, in fact, that it was used as a stand in by Ferrari for a photoshoot celebrating the anniversary of the original winning race car. The 330 P4 recreation is 100% street legal, is registered as a 1965 Ferrari 330, and has a list price of $199,999.
