Vintage 1965 (LARGE !) photograph of Lorenzo Bandini testing Dino 166P S/N 0834 at Modena Track.
This is a vintage April 1965 photo of the famous Ferrari Dino 166P (S/N 0834) being tested by Scuderia Ferrari factory driver Lorenzo Bandini at Modena race track prior to its first race outing.
Judging by the brake dust on the front wheel, Lorenzo had already put a couple of laps on it when this photo was taken.
About a month later, Nino Vaccarella and the same Lorenzo Bandini would gun this 1600cc pocket rocket so fast around the Nurburgring track during the 1965 1000KM race that both officials and competitors had a hard time believing that this was actually a 1600cc car and under the watchful eye of the race commissioners the engine was taken apart after the race to verify its displacement!
The car was later "chopped" to Barchetta specification and succesfully entered in various hillclimb events and giving Ludovico Scarfiotti the 1965 European hillclimb championship.
The car survives to this day and seems to reside in the UK.
This LARGE photo measures some 30 x 20 cm or 11.8 x 7.9 inches and is in very good condition.
The back carries NO references to a possible photographer.
This is a vintage photo, i.e. it was printed shortly after the image was captured on film.
