The development of the Ferrari V12 from 1966 to 1968 illustrates the changes. When introduced in 1966 the engine featured 2-valve cylinder head, at the Italian Grand Prix of 1966 the Scuderia introduced the 3-valve version and a year later a 4-valve variant.

The 3-valve car that was raced in 1967 is one of the most beautiful of the era. The 24-spark plugs with the exhaust pipe bundle coming out of the top of the engine was a visual delight.
