1956 Ferrari 625 LM
When the 1958 LeMans regulations limited displacement of the prototype catagory to 2.5 litres, Ferrari fit three old cars with the inline-4 from the 625 F1.
At the same time, Touring added a full-width windscreen, fog lights and an scoop on the hood near the driver.
Unfortunately, the three cars did not have enough power to match Jaguar at Le Mans.
These cars were the last Ferraris bodied by Touring of Milan and featured some uncharacteristic wheel arches.
