Designed by legendary Ferrari designer Mauro Forghieri, the 3-litre flat-12 engined Ferrari 312T first appeared in 1975, and was continually developed to compete for six years, until the end of 1980. The cars won three Drivers' World Championships - two for Niki Lauda, in 1975 and 1977, and one for Jody Scheckter, in 1979 - and took Ferrari to four Constructors' World Championships, also winning races in the hands of Clay Regazzoni, Carlos Reutemann, and the incomparable Gilles Villeneuve.
