Ferrari debuted the P4 in 1967 to replace the prior year's P3, and only three were ever built. Today only one original still exists, chassis (0856) owned by Canadian Lawrence Stroll. He bought the (0856) car in 2000 for US$ 9 million from Bernie Ecclestone, and its history and uniqueness make this P4 one of the most expensive vehicles in the world today. Mauro Forghieri's technical race expertise and Franco Rocchi's engine redesign contributed greatly to win the overall 1967 World Championship.
The year started with Ferrari's stunning comeback at the 24 hours of Daytona with the P4's taking first and second and the P3 third. Even though Ford claimed victory at the 1967 Le Mans, the second and third place finish for the P4's was a very strong challenge. Rule changes made the P4 obsolete by the following year, and two of the three cars were converted to 350 Can-Am racers.
