The favourite color of David Piper - a bright green - did the Ferrari 512M not have, which was used by the Britain racing driver and team owner at the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1971. But this did not prevent a success: His driver Chris Craft and David Weir achieved the 4th place in the overall classification after 355 driven laps with cold and dry weather. The winner, the Martini Racing Team with the Porsche 917, had won after 397 laps. CMR has dedicated the traditionally in red painted Ferrari with the starting number 16 a handcrafted high-quality modelcar in the scale 1:18, which we want to look at in the context of this article to Throwback Thursday as well as the history of his role model. The diecast miniature has now been released exclusively for modelissimo and ck-modelcars.de. Let's hide back!

Actually it would have been the task of the Ferrari 512 to resist the ultimately outstanding Porsche 917 in the sports car world cup. The people from Stuttgart have shocked the experts with the already used in 1969 twelve-cylinder and thus forced Maranello to act. But the 512 S came one year too late and could not really exist over the Porsche except with a few notable successes, although he started as well as the Porsche with short and long tail, about the use of which the respective route condition decided. The successor of the 512 S, the 512 M - M as Modificato - proved the 917 then actually first superior, even set some lap records and almost made it to the top: While the Stuttgart drove home the second overall victory in Le Mans 1971, the Ferrari 512 M landed immediately behind.

Who is David Piper?

The third place went to the American Sam Posey and Tony Adamowicz for the North American Racing Team; the 4th rank secured the role model of our model, which appears under the item number CMR020. The 512M was powered by a 5.0-liter Ferrari twelve-cylinder, which should develope up to 440 kW / 600 hp. The factory of Ferrari had lost the interest of the car, and also supported the private teams no longer. Who can not do anything with the name David Piper as a team owner: The Briton entered motor sports in 1954, sat in the 1960s, primarily for Ferrari in many sports car cockpits, ended his career accidentally in 1970 and remained the brand until today as a collector and restorer faithful.
