Friday's Ferrari

Ferrari was the featured car at the Christie's International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1992, and this was one of the cars in the special display.
It's Paul Horne's 1970 Ferrari 512 M, chassis #1002, and the programme of the event said this about the car:

26    512M
Mid-engined V12; 5 litres; 550bhp at 8500rpm; twin ohc
per bank, 4 valves per cylinder. Lucas fuel injection.
Independent suspension all round, A-arms/coil springs.
First seen Daytona 24 Hours race 1970. Developed as a
Group 5 Sports Car they were used by the works team
and by Ferrari concessionaire and private entrants
during 1970. There was almost no works use during
1971. The 512 S version of 1970 gave way to the 512 M
for 1971. A number of 'S' cars were converted to 'M'. 25
built. Ran as a Scuderia Montjuich car in 1970/71.
Subsequently bought by Robert Horne who set a British
flying mile record speed of 191.64 mph with it in 1977.
