INK re-imagines minimalistic ferrari 330 P4, the beautiful loser

london-based creative studio INK releases a series of CGI images of the ferrari 330 P4 titled ‘ferrari 330 p4, the beautiful loser’, to honor its seductive design. as the latest addition to INK’s ‘plain bodies’ series, the supercar images transform the historic race car from its period liveries into INK’s aesthetic signature as a tribute to minimalism and dieter rams.

only produced three times, the ferrari 330 P4 is arguably the most beautiful car ever made, but also shares the unfortunate story of losing to its ford arch-rival. after famously winning 1st, 2nd and 3rd spots at daytona in 1967, the supercar was no match for the ford GT40 at le mans that same year; the beautiful loser.

‘stripped of its traditional red coachwork paint, these CGI images celebrate functional form and uncomplicated art direction,’ comments INK. ‘we present the P4 as an object of beauty, its curves forever victorious.’

  • You poison the well using the word ‘Loser’. …and one could argue there are more beautiful designs by Ferrari that were not compromised by racing aero. You, INK, gained no creds with this posturing.

  • In your article ” The Beautiful Loser” you (and a lot of other people eg: the “Ferrari v Ford” film) nobody remembers the P4s won the World Sports Car Championship in 1967 despite coming 2nd to the GT 40s at Le Mans that year. That’s like lauding Max Verstaffen as Champion Driver in 2019. Be fair.!!

    David Catlin says:
  • Correction.
    The car shown it’s not the 330 P4, but the lesser 412P.

    Manuel Bicudo says:
  • I’m old enough to remember the Ferrari 330 p3/4. IMHO the most beautiful race car ever made, one of the last based on streamlining. After that, the more angular, brutal look that generated downforce took over. I got a laugh out of the scene in “Ford vs Ferrari” where Ferrari debuted the 330 P3 and Carroll Shelby says, “If this was a beauty contest, we just lost”.
