1962 Ferrari 248 SP

This 2,458 cc barchetta was fitted with a single overhead camshaft V8 engine fed by four twin-choke Weber carburettors good for around 250 bhp.

The tubular space-frame featured all-round independent suspension while the bodywork was very similar to the 246 SP’s.

The 268 SP version was also fitted with a V8 engine the displacement of which, with the stroke increased to 71 mm, was upped to 2,650 cc.

ENGINE
Type

a longitudinal engine is an internal combustion engine in which the crankshaft is oriented along the long axis of the vehicle, front to back.90° big-bore V8 are usually too long to fit in a FF Tranverse Engine bay

Rear, longitudinal, 90° V8
Bore/Stroke

A bore (or) cylinder bore is size in terms diameter of cylinder in which piston travels in a cylinder. Stroke length along with the bore diameter determines the engine displacement.

82 x 69.5 mm
Unitary Displacement

unitary displacement is the swept volume of one of the pistons inside on of the cylinders within an engine. It is calculated from the bore (diameter of the cylinder), stroke (distance the piston travels).

367.03 cc
Total displacement

total displacement is the combined swept volume of the pistons inside the cylinders of an engine. It is calculated from the bore (diameter of the cylinders), stroke (distance the piston travels), and number of cylinders.
