Historic Formula 1 cars behold price tags as demented as the people that were brave enough to get behind the wheels of them. Seeing championship winning cars racing around a track is therefore a rare occasion. Here is Stereoscreens previous footage for the Lauda Legacy Teaser No2, you’ll want your earphones on full blast for this one.
The iconic Ferrari 312 B3 is seen in multiple different camera angles being wrestled around a drenched Monaco circuit by German professional driver and winner of the Triple Crown in endurance racing; Marco Werner. The 56 year old navigates the historic circuit in the model that has the iconic and oversized air-scoop behind the driver.
Two onboard views are shown, one above the cockpit, showing Werner’s helmet and steering wheel, making for cinematic enjoyment in his neverending wrestle with the three spoke steering wheel while the analog rev counter behind it continually bounces from top to bottom. The second camera is mounted just behind the gearbox on the rear wing, showing the pronounced bodywork covering the screaming 12-cylinder while mechanical components like the inboard brakes, sideshafts and suspension components are seen undulating at different cornering loads.
The 312 B series was designed by the legendary Italian Mauro Forghieri and utilised an aluminium monocoque with a mid-mounted and longitudinally mounted 3-litre naturally-aspirated flat-12 which is responsible for the audible satisfaction. Werner can be seen taking his hand off of the wheel in some precarious corners to change the Ferrari Type 621 5-speed into correct gear throughout the clip.
We hope to see more of these classic challengers being driven to their limits in historic races like it is shown here in the Lauda Legacy!
