The origin and subsequent history of the 3-litre Ferrari sports cars, which the famed Italian firm designed and built to contest the various versions of the World Sports Car Championship between 1969 and 1973. This series of cars started with the V12 engine and progressed to using the Flat 12 Ferrari engine from the then current Grand Prix car. Includes the developmental and race history, with a full list of all events and individual chassis numbers.


The late 1960s and early 1970s formed a significant epoch in the world of international sports car racing. As the motor racing rule-making body moved back and forth between cars that less and less resembled road-going vehicles, prototype sports car racing captured the imagination of manufacturers, teams and fans alike. Porsche vs Ferrari vs Alfa Romeo vs Matra provided some of the best ever racing for sports cars. At first the 5-litre Porsches and Ferraris battled through 1970 and 1971, but the 3-litre prototypes that previously had run in another class rapidly became more and more competitive.
By 1973, the Ferrari 312PB, little more than a Grand Prix car with full bodywork, was dominating the scene. This has always been viewed as one of the great eras in sports car racing, when all the Grand Prix drivers were fully active in sports cars as well as F1 machines. With 100 contemporary pictures, this is the story of a great time in motor sport history.

Independent Reviews

The paperback book is a handy size for easy reference and appears to be well-researched with full results and plenty of interesting images. Out of print since 2011 it is a worthwhile addition to any motoring library.
Ferrari Magazine

A handy, compact addition to any Ferrari Library.
Classic & Sports Car

A well-researched potted guide to variations of a Ferrari sports-prototype icon.

Includes the developmental and race history, with a full list of all events and individual chassis numbers of the cars that competed.

This is the first book devoted solely to Ferrari's 312P and 312PB models, and it features many rare and previously unpublished photos.
Vintage Racecar

A comprehensive little book on some superb Ferrari sports cars. Full results and plenty of interesting images make this a very useful reference book.
Motor Sport

McDonough and Collins succeed in giving us the last word on these classic Ferraris. It is a smallish book at only 128 pages long, but it proves that good things come in small packages.
