Chassis: 0642MDTR
One of three Touring bodied four-cylinder racers prepared for the 1956 season, this works car won the Grand Prix Supercortemaggiore at Monza in the hands of Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn. It was then fitted with a 2.5-litre engine and upgraded to 625 LM specification for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Raced by Duncan Hamilton and Alfonso de Portago, it failed to reach the finish due to accident damage. Chassis 0642MDTR was then sold to the United States through Luigi Chinetti's New York based distributorship. It was raced by a succession of noted gentleman racers, including Lloyd 'Lucky' Casner and Bill Kimberley. Its final contemporary outings came as late as 1963. With the exception of a brief spell in Japanese hands, it has since been owned by American collectors. Today, it is the only one of the three Touring bodied cars known to have survived.
