126C4 M2, Rene Arnoux, Europe 1984 (Tameo, limited 30/80)
The 1984 car was even more dramatically arrow-shaped and it also boasted an important modification in the distribution of the air flows: the air first went through the radiator and then the heat exchangers before being expelled through the sides. The driver was seated even further forward, so much so that new rules were introduced restricting the position. The front suspension wishbones had wider bases and the engine power was boosted by a further 10%. Carbon disk brakes were also introduced which cut the weight of both the car and, of course, any unsuspended mass.
For the first time in many, many years, Ferrari had a new Italian driver in the form of Michele Alboreto, who won at Zolder. However, the 126 C4 was simply not able to compete on an equal footing with the McLarens, and Belgium was their only win of the year. At the end of the season, Ferrari came second in the Constructors’ Championship, a good way behind the winner. Alboreto and Arnoux came fourth and sixth respectively in the Drivers’ which Lauda snatched from Prost by a mere half point.
В 1984 году, чтобы сократить отрыв от конкурентов, Ferrari были вынуждены выпустить инновационный вариант машины, который дебютировал в Монце и получил добавочной обозначение М2. Эта версия машины с характерной сужающейся задней частью (Coke bottle) позволила Альборето подняться на подиум по итогам Гран При Италии, однако McLaren по-прежнему оставались далеко впереди.
Найти фото именно с таким задним крылом я к сожалению не смог.
