Here is the Jackie Stewart Special Ferrari 330 P4 at Knockhill during the Scottish Classic Speedfair revving with a lot of backfiring which was extremely loud and ferocious!
Talked to the guy driving and he told me some history about the car and it not actually being a normal P4 but the Jackie Stewart Special. Amazing looking car and it did sound very nice going round the track afterwards for a couple of laps.

Authentic 1967 Ferrari 330 P3/4 - Sound! (0846)
➟ About the Video:
YES this is a real 1967 Ferrari 330 P3/4 owned by movie director and
entrepreneur James Glickenhaus. This is chassis 0846.
I had the pleasure of seeing (and hearing) this car at the 2014 Americana
Manhasset d'Elegance Concours in New York.
"Only four Ferrari P4-engined cars were ever made: one P3/4 and three 330
P4s. Their 3-valve cylinder head was modeled after those of Italian Grand
Prix-winning Formula One cars. To this was added the same fuel injection
system from the P3 for an output of up to 450 hp (335 kW).
The P3/4, one of the P4s, and one 412 P electrified the racing world when
they crossed the finish line together (in first 0846, second 0856, and
third place 0844) in the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona, for a photo finish to
counter Ford's photo of the Ford GT40 Mk.II crossing the finish line
together First, Second, and Third at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
- 0846 the only P3/4 was originally built early in 1966 as a P3 by Ferrari.
It was modified in December 1966 to accept a P4 engine and it's wheelbase
was decreased P3 2412mm to P4 2400mm. It retained its P3 nose and chassis
and vestigial P3 engine mounts becoming a P 3/4. This vehicle was damaged
in an accident at Le Mans and was discarded by Ferrari. Recently, many
components of the original P3/4 0846 including it's original P 3/4 chassis
have resurfaced in the possession of exotic car collector and enthusiast
James Glickenhaus, a former movie director and stock exchange magnate.
Although both he and David Piper (from whom he acquired the car) thought it
one of three replica P4 chassis constructed with the blessing of Enzo
Ferrari in the mid 70ies from Factory P4 Chassis Blueprints given to David
Piper by Enzo Ferrari, a recent "Death Bed Statement" of Tom Meade's
confirms that Tom Meade bought, Directly From Enzo Ferrari, in the early
70ies, Ferrari P 3/4 0846's original fire damaged chassis which had been
put in the Ferrari Factory Scrap Yard after 0846's accident at Le Mans in
1967 and later sold 0846's original P 3/4 chassis to the original chassis
maker who repaired and sold it, unbeknownst to David Piper, who thought the
original chassis maker was making three new P4 Chassis from the original P4
chassis blueprints Enzo Ferrari gave to him. This dovetails with Mauro
Forghieri's written statement that 0846's original chassis was scrapped not
destroyed and that "the modification of the chassis with vestigial mounts
etc." "of course" could have been done by Ferrari. 0846's Original P3/4
Chassis is different from, and can not be made from P4 Blueprints. Nearly
all of the tube frame chassis and other components from the original
wrecked P3/4 0846 are part the car owned by James Glickenhaus today. This
discovery has stirred debate. The Ferrari Market Letter recently reported:
"While Ferrari insists that 0846 was scrapped and is no more, a car exists
with strong claims to be the resurrection of that car." Its tube frame
chassis appears to be a P3 Chassis modified to hold a P4 engine, as was the
case with 0846 exclusively, and the damage from two contemporary racing
accidents appears in the frame as well. The car's transmission, engine
heads, and steering rack also include the correct Le Mans scrutinizing
marks, linking them to P3 0846 and P3/4 0846 of 1966 and 1967. P3/4 0846
was road tested by Car and Driver magazine.
Since 2002, Ferrari S.p.A. has continuously published the fact on their
official web site Ferrari.com Copyrighted by Ferrari S.p.A,in the owners
section, in Ferrari S.p.A's sole discretion, that Ferrari P 3/4 Chassis
0846 has been owned by James Glickenhaus since July 2000, when he bought it
from David Piper. The legal identity of this particular car that James
Glickenhaus has owned since July 2000 as published by Ferrari S.p.A. on
their copyrighted web site was established when James Glickenhaus informed
Ferrari S.p.A. that he was registering this car as 1967 Ferrari 330 P4
Chassis 0846 with US Motor Vehicle Authorities in 2000 and if Ferrari
believed this was not true that they had the duty to act within a two year
period which they did not. "The common law doctrine of estoppel by
acquiescence is applied when one party gives legal notice to a second party
of a fact or claim, and the second party fails to challenge or refute that
claim within a reasonable time. The second party is said to have acquiesced
to the claim, and is estopped from later challenging it, or making a
counterclaim. The doctrine is similar to, and often applied with, estoppel
by laches." After the 2014 Amelia Island Concours noted Ferrari Historian
Keith Bluemel clearly reported in Cavallino Magazine that Ferrari 330 P 3/4
0846 owned by Jim Glickenhaus attended that Concours."
