FERRARI 275 P n.20
The Ferrari 275 P n.20 is the winning car of the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1964. The Italian manufacturer after four consecutive wins updated the winning Ferrari 250 P of 1964 increasing the engine displacement renaming it 275 P, the Ford after receiving the refusal by Enzo Ferrari in selling his company brought in a few months to the debut of the GT40 which still seemed too sour to annoy the builder of Maranello.
Vaccarella and Guichet won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1964 with the Ferrari 275 P n.20, in second place and third place the Ferrari 330 P n.14 of Hill and Bonnier and n.19 of Surtees and Bandini, away from the winners five and twelve laps respectively. For Ford it was a scorching defeat, however, demonstrating in the race an excellent top speed and a base from which to plan a future of successes.
At the seasonal debut the Ferrari 275 P won the 12 hours of Sebring with Parkes and Maglioli driving.
