Ferrari S.p.A. is a sports car manufacturer based in Maranello. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 as Auto Avio Costruzioni, the company built its first car in 1940, the company's inception as an auto manufacturer is recognized in 1947 when the first Ferrari-badged car was completed.
The Ferrari 312T was a Ferrari Formula One car based on the 312B3.
Designed by Mauro Forghieri for the 1975 season and was an uncomplicated and clean design that responded to mechanical upgrades, the 312T series won 27 races, four Constructors’ and three Drivers’ Championships, and was replaced for the 1981 season by the 126 C, Ferrari’s first turbocharged F1 car.
The development of the 312T began in 1974, as it became apparent that problems with the handling of the then current 312B3 chassis could not be solved, and a radical re-think was required. As with all Ferrari F1 cars of this era, the design of the new model was led by Mauro Forghieri.
