The history of the legendary Ferrari 312B debuts at the cinema
It was 1970 when Mauro Forghieri, engineer and chief designer of Ferrari, decided to launch in the race track a new car model powered by a revolutionary engine, the legendary V12 opposed to the equally legendary 312B.
It was the first "flat" engine in the history of competitions, originally designed to be in the wing of an airplane.
Thus the Ferrari 312B was born, which in fact in 1970 allowed Jacky Ickx and Clay Regazzoni to win four GPs and to struggle up to the last for the F1 title.
For the Prancing Horse, an extraordinary period of victories started, which will last for at least a decade with 37 triumphs in GPs, 4 world championships and 3 world drivers championships.
Now, almost 50 years after the glorious debut, the Ferrari 312B is on cinema screens thanks to the director Andrea Marini in the world premiere on October 9, 10 and 11 in Italy and to follow in cinemas in 50 countries worldwide.
This golden age is traced through the testimonies of memorable drivers such as Niki Lauda, Jacky Ickx, Gerhard Berger and Damon Hill.
