Ferrari 312PB Ends an Era With a Bang - Video, the 12 cylinder sounds are delicious!

Drivers Brian Redman and Arturo Merzario each drove the car and combined to win three of the eleven races of the 1972 championship-winning season, a season that saw Ferrari win every race except the 24 Hours of Le Mans (which they sat out due to reliability questions related to the Formula One-derived twelve cylinder).

The 312PB’s racing pedigree, included races at Brands Hatch, Daytona, Nurburgring, and Watkins Glen.  The Ferrari 312PB is special for another reason too: it was Ferrari’s last sports prototype before they exited sports car racing to focus their efforts solely on Formula One. They put the exclamation point on a long and storied history by winning the championship.
