|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This car was originally obtained by Count Giovanni Volpi (SSS Scuderia Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia). It was driven by Vacarella and Scarlatti, two works Ferrari drivers of the period, in the 1962 24 Hours of LeMans, and won outright the Nine Hours of Auvergne at Clearmont Ferrand later that year. It's believed that Volpi owned the car on paper only and that SEFAC Ferrari handled the race entries and driver assignments. Swedish racing driver Ulf Norinder owned the car from 1963 through 1971, racing the car at the Targa Florio, Monza, Daytona, Spa, Nurburgring, Reims and at a number of Swedish venues. It's believed that he received direct assistance and entry in several races through SEFAC Ferrari. On occasion, Norinder had this car driven by other famous drivers of the period, including Jackie Stewart and Chris Amon. Over the years, this car scored many points for Ferrari in the World Sports Car Manufacturers Championship.
