One of Ferrari's most interesting Formula 1 cars, the 312 T6 is a design better left on the drawing board than the track.
About this creation
Flickr

During the course of the 1976 Formula 1 season (and even years after), multiple teams developed cars similar to the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34. Among those were the March 2-4-0 (1976) and the Williams FW07D (1981) & FW08B (1982).

In 1977, Ferrari had their own take on the design. Called the 312 T6, the car featured four front tires in the rear on a single axle. The car was tested by Niki Lauda and Carlos Reutemann in 1977, but never raced. During testing, the car was shown to be nearly impossible to drive, and during one test at Ferrari’s Fiorano test track, Reutemann crashed and the car burst into flames. The car in it's current spec was too wide for F1 regs at the time, so the design was scrapped.

After the 312 T6 experiment, articles appeared in the Italian press with pictures and illustrations depicting a secret Ferrari Formula 1 car, dubbed the Ferrari 312 T8. They showed four wheels at the front, like the Tyrrell P34, and another four at the rear, like the March 2-4-0. Many years later, these pictures were revealed to be a mock up released by Ferrari to keep publicity of the team high.

Same as main, view on Flickr for high-def.

Could the driver be a disgruntled Carlos Reutemann? Quite possibly!



Back shot, exhaust included.

I wanted to build a micro vintage F1 car for a while that was my own original design, so I finally sat down and made my own. Chose the Ferrari 312 T6 due to it's unusual rear end, and it made for a fun little build. Had fun building this little thing, my current plan is to try and make the Tyrrell, March, and both Williams in this scale, or I'll end up making cars from the 1976 or 1977 F1 season if I decide to do more of this.

Unhappy driver made by Citizenbrick.

Now to work on MocAthalon stuff for the next month.
