ferrari 512

For this latest installment of Ferrari Friday, we have the awesome 512M from 1970 that I shot at Silverstone Classic last summer. The ‘M’ stands for ‘modificata‘, since the bodywork was changed from the earlier ‘S’ designated cars that started the 1970 season. A rule change for 1972 that limited engine size to 3l meant that Ferrari didn’t develop this car for 1971, ending the era of 5.0 V12s. What a sound it made!
