Ferrari F333 SP, the Racing Barchetta powered by 650Hp F1 V12 Engine – EPIC Sound at Mugello Circuit

Here is a superb F333 SP, the famous Ferrari racing Barchetta equipped with the naturally aspirated V12 Formula One engine. We are at the Mugello circuit during one of the Corse Clienti events.

The Barchetta, practically unknown on the European circuits, was designed by Dallara and was presented in 1993. It took to the track the following year with the intent for Ferrari to offer a sports-prototype car to its customers at the IMSA championship.

This category saw the Maranello house cars triumph for many years; we all remember the 312PB, the last car to race in that championship; we are talking about the 70s. Twenty years pass before we see a new sport-prototype, the F333 SP. The car you see brings together the best in every sector.

The engine is a 650 Hp V12 (derived from F1); the frame is a combination of the honeycomb structure in aluminium and carbon fibre. The carbon fibre body was assembled at Michelotto Automobili in Padua, weighing only 862 kg.

It immediately proved competitive, and for almost a decade, it achieved successes in the most important endurance competitions, including the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1998. Its Palmares speaks for itself, with 69 pole positions and 56 overall victories!
