Featured is one of the rare examples still in existence. It has survived in a remarkable original condition. One of two show cars built to the highest specification, it was displayed at the Paris Motorshow before being sold to its first owner. He and the subsequent owners rarely used the machine and before it was purchased by the current owner in 2003, it had covered only 1300 km.

Although showing their age, the interior and exterior were in good enough shape to be left virtually untouched. This could not be said from the engine and gearbox, which had proven troublesome throughout the car's life and had stopped functioning altogether. After the extensive rebuilt the engine was dyno tested and unlike most Italian engines of the day actually achieved the claimed performance figures. With the 220 bhp V8 fitted snugly behind the passenger cabin, the Italian supercar made its first public appearance in many, many years during the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It will be shown again during the 2008 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
