Ferrari 312 T8 - 8 wheels

1976 Ferrari 312 T8 - 8 wheels
(by ths link: http://users.pandora.be/aerogi/Racin...m/Weird_39.htm )
the story...

"If you ever come across magazines from 1976, look out for a picture of another Ferrari multi wheeler, an 8 wheel car being tested by Regazzoni, 4 on the front like Tyrrell, and four at the back like the March. Dubbed the Ferrari 312T8, pictures appeared in the press comlpete with exploded diagrams of how the car worked, which if you think about it is a pretty daft thing to do if you are developing a new concept for racing.

Problem was, none of the Paprazzi who permenantly camp round the chain-link fencing at Fiorano could confirm ever seeing the T8 in action. Some years later Ferrari came clean and admitted that the picture they released was a mock up, the T8 never did exist but was purely an exercise designed to keep people thinking about what they were up to next, which at the time was designing and building an Indycar, tested in the States but unraced and intended for Mario Andretti to drive until he decided to stay with Lotus"

That would've been overkill certainly...
