Ferrari 330 LMB
|Body and chassis|
|Engine||4.0 L Colombo V12|
Four 330 Le Mans Berlinettas were built in 1963. First presented in March 1963 alongside the mid-engined 250 P, they were essentially a development of the 250 GTOs and fitted with the 4-litre 330 engine, here rated at 400 hp (298 kW) at 7,500 rpm. Although the front is visually similar to the 250 GTOs, the main structure came from the 250 Lusso. These four cars are not the same as the "330 GTOs". The wheelbase, at 2,500 mm (98 in), was also 100 mm longer than either the Lusso's or the GTO's. The raised plates on the top of the rear fenders were necessary to clear the rear tires.
The LMB (originally simply the "330 LM") did not see much racing, as Ferrari was moving over to the mid-engined layout for racing. One retired at Sebring 1963, while of three starters at Le Mans that year, two retired and the car of Jack Sears and Mike Salmon came in fifth. After this, the LMB saw no more works entries.
