Hot Wheels Launches Ferrari 512 S Sebring Model [Video]
The engine in the Ferrari 512 S was a new 60 degree V12 with 60 PS. Regulations in FIA /24 hours of Le Mans Sports 25 racing cars built under the name dictate that the displacement of the engine can not be any more than five liters, so this has a 4993cc unit.
This one, number 21,was driven by Mario Andretti, Nino Vaccarella and Ignazio Giunti and won the 12 Hours of Sebring after an incredible race!
Unlike the air-cooled boxer engine that the Porsche used, the 512 S had a complicated cooling system and heavy radiator. Combined with a heavier chassis, the Ferrari racer was 100 kg heavier than the alloy-framed 917.
