Chassis: 0008
The second of three examples produced, this 1512 F1 debuted in the hands of John Surtees during the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring. Like its sister cars, chassis 0008 was not particularly successful with Lorenzo Bandini's fourth in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza the highest placing. At the end of 1965, the car was sold or perhaps even given to Luigi Chinetti for his loyal support. Although it was not one of the NART cars, it was understandably painted in the blue and white colours used at Watkins Glen in 1964. During the 1980s the car passed into the hands of Monte Shalett, who eventually sold it the current owner at Christie's 2005 Monterey auction for just over $1 million.

Determined to return the car to full running order, chassis 0008's new custodian sent the car to Italy for a complete restoration to its original configuration and colour scheme. It proved a difficult and lengthy project, and eventually the help of the 1512's original designer Mauro Forghieri was called in. Completed early in May of 2012, chassis 0008 was rushed to Monaco for the Historic Grand Prix. The lack of testing hampered the effort but during the brief moments the car was on song, it did look and sound absolutely fantastic. More work was required and a second engine was built by Forghieri in time for the 2013 Goodwood Revival. The car ran much better but the torrential conditions prevented driver Joe Colasacco to shine.
