The Ferrari P series were sports prototype racing cars produced in the 1960s and early 1970s.
Although Enzo Ferrari resisted the move even with Cooper dominating F1, Ferrari began producing mid-engined racing cars in 1960 with the Ferrari Dino-V6-engine Formula Two 156, which would be turned into the Formula One-winner of 1961.
Sports car racers followed in 1963. Although these cars shared their numerical designations (based on engine displacement) with road models, they were almost entirely dissimilar. The first Ferrari mid-engine in a road car did not arrive until the 1967 Dino, and it was 1971 before a Ferrari 12-cylinder engine was placed behind a road-going driver in the 365 GT4 BB.
From Ferrari.com car database:
The versatile four-litre V12 made its first appearance in 1964 in the sports-prototypes following the three-litre 250 and 3.3-litre 275 versions. The new engine’s power would be constantly increased with each new version. It passed its reliability tests, bringing both wins and good placings for non-works teams in close contact with Ferrari such as NART and Maranello Concessionaires. The 330 P was a development of the sports-racing version of the 400 SA, which had already been successfully tried out in the 330 TRI and a few GTO models. At the end of the 1964 season, it scored another two victories: one in the Paris 1000 km at Monthléry and the other in the Trofeo Bettoia at Monza with Scarfiotti
