FERRARI 286 SP – ANOTHER REAR-ENGINE EXPERIMENT

Announced at the same 1962 press event as the 196 SP, the Ferrari 286 SP represented the same new “engine in the back” design philosophy. Even though the head man wasn’t thrilled with the prospects of veering away from his front-engined racers, these were destined to become the future of the company. While the 286 wouldn’t end up influencing any future models in the way many of the other “SP” models would, it still served as an important part of the company’s foray into unknown territory. And boy, would that experiment ever pay off in the long run.

LARGER ENGINE, MORE POWER

Still sporting a V6, the engine displacement on the 286 SP was considerably larger, at 2.86 litres, than the 1.96-litre engine from the 196 SP. The increased displacement gave the car and extra 50bhp, although the power per lite plummeted from 106 to 91. Total power was rated at 260bhp. Because the car was so short-lived, there are really no performance numbers to discuss, although we can be fairly sure the 286 SP could travel in excess of the 196 SP’s 149mph (240 km/h) top speed.
