This Ferrari 330 LMB Homage Project Is As Authentic As Classic Car Recreations Get

Although the 36-or-so 250 GTOs produced during the 1960s are widely regarded as the crème de la crème of classic automobilia, they’re not the only exclusive Ferraris to emerge from the era. Rather, as the last front-engined race car to be built by Maranello — with just four total examples prepped for competition — the 330 LMB is both arguably more significant and also rarer than its hallowed predecessor.

The car you see before you was originally an homage project to be completed by Ferrari fanatic Ed Carter. However, after he passed away in 2015, it sat dormant for two years until Bell Sport and Classic took up the torch. Having started its life as an original 1964 Ferrari 330 GT, it’s since been transformed into an authentic LMB racer. As such, everything about the car has been recreated with the utmost attention to detail, including the hand-built bodywork, the ‘Competition Lusso’ interior, and the classic ‘Rosso Corsa’ red paint job. What’s more, Bell Sport and Classic has rebuilt the car’s Columbo V12 to match LMB race specifications, fitted it with a 5-speed synchro gearbox, and given it a freshly-tuned suspension setup using exclusively period-correct parts.
