Na caixa da minha Testa Rossa tem uma foto de uma muito parecida que vem com uma bomba de gasolina de competição.
A ÚNICA Ferrari 712, construída para participar da série Can-Am, pertenceu ao colecionador brasileiro, residente na Inglaterra, Carlos Monteverde, que a apresentou no Goodwood Festival of Speed de 2003. Na ocasião o carro foi conduzido por David Franklin:http://www.ferrariownersclub.co.uk/happenings/2003/july/goodwood_fos/report.asp 1 Graeme Wight Jnr. - Gould Cosworth V6 - 42.95 secs 2 Rod Millen - Toyota Tacoma Pickup - 45.08 3 David Franklin - Ferrari 712 Can Am - 48.74 4 Geoff Farmer - March 707 - 48.78 5 Justin Law - Jaguar XJR10 - 49.62 6 Manuel Reuter - Opel Calibra V6 - 53.32Of the above, Wight Jnr was very smooth and controlled with a terminal speed of 139 mph; New Zealander Rod Millen (aka King of Pikes Peak) proved that it is possible to brake, accelerate, change both gear and direction on grass……all at the same time in his 900bhp, twin turbocharged Tacoma based pickup!; David Franklin continued his successful season in Carlos Monteverde’s Ferrari 712; emerging “historic talent” Justin Law from Stoke on Trent was “mighty” at the wheel of the totally ill suited Jaguar XJR and first time visitor and former German Touring Car Champion Manuel Reuter showed excellent speed in the the Opel Calibra V6.Um pouco da história do carro:http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/car/625/Ferrari-712-Can-Am.htmlO carro foi construído a partir de uma 512 M (chassi #1010), que foi modificada para a Can-Am,http://www.finecars.cc/en/editorial/article/news/collectors-corner-ferrari-512-s-m/index.html712 CanAmFor the CanAm series a car with very high torque matching the track characteristics was required, that led to a seven litre engine which was used first in a regular 512 M chassis, later various spider bodies were developed and replaced the 512 M berlinatte body. This was a one-off.
