Chassis: HU08
Sold new through Jo Bonnier, chassis HU08 was raced in the 1972 European Sportscar Championship by Italian Antonio Zadra. The car was fielded by the famous Brescia Corse team, who had a wealth of international experience. The most notable result was a class win at the Targa Florio. The T290 remained in Italy and among its subsequent owners was the late Fabrizio Violati, who created the Maranello Rosso museum. The car's final contemporary outings were in hill climbs with a 1600 cc fitted. In 2007, it was finally retrieved from Italy and repatriated to the United Kingdom. It came with a very rare Chevrolet Vega based Vega EA engine, which was installed during the subsequent restoration.
