The introduction of the 126 CK in 1981 hailed the official start of the Ferrari twin turbo era. In Maranello, the Scuderia dragged its feet about taking the new engine to the tracks, both to make the most of the naturally aspirated engine and because it wanted to try out another type of compressor, the Comprex, which was used in the 126 CX. Although theoretically very interesting, the new device turned out to be difficult to perfect for racing engine purposes. It was abandoned and the only turbocharged single-seater that remained was the 126 C.
This car raced in Long Beach Grand Prix 1981 with a 126 CX body and a KKK Turbo engine.
