1970 Ferrari 512 LM

Ferrari participated in the 1970 World Marques Championship with the 512 S, a sports car that was to be produced in at least 25 specimens with berlinetta and spyder versions. The 512 S was equipped with a light alloy semi-monocoque frame, while the 5.0-litre V12 engine was centrally mounted and had an output of 550hp at 8500rpm. The total weight of the two-seater was 850kg. For the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the long tail car was designed to reach a maximum speed of 340 km/h on the Hunaudières straight. The 512 S won the 12 Hours of Sebring with Giunti, Vaccarella and Andretti, and came second, third and fourth in the Monza 1000 km. Ickx and Surtees secured a podium finish at the 1000km of Spa, while Andretti, Merzario and Ickx took another one at the 24 Hours of Daytona, as did Vaccarella and Giunti at the Targa Florio.
