In the spring of 1957, Ferrari made a further effort on the 12-cylinder engine intended for sports cars, bringing the total displacement to 4023cc. The car that adopted this engine was called 335S, alongside the 315S and 290MM. The 335S showed its full potential at the 1957 Mille Miglia, even if the victory went to Piero Taruffi's 315S. The 335S, however, secured Ferrari the Sport World Championship that year, with a double win at the Venezuelan GP in Caracas. The career of the 335S continued also in 1958, when the official cars received a modified bodywork that was inspired by the lines of the new 250 TR.

The 335S chassis no. 0700 was used for the first time at the 1957 Mille Miglia, where Peter Collins had as navigator the photographer Louis Klemantaski, who was the author of an exceptional reportage. However, the car of Collins and Klemantaski did not reach the finish line in Brescia due to mechanical failure. The 335S 0700 was seen again in prestigious races that season, such as the 1000km of the Nurburgring, where it finished in second place with Collins and Gendebien, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it had to retire due to a broken fuel pump (drivers Collins / Phil Hill).
