Fully FIA built race car, equipped with FIA HTP class CT9.


This is a fantastic 2-door 122S from 1965 which has been converted in the past to a FIA race car equipped with HTP. The car was imported to the Netherlands in 2018. The history of the car is partly present. The car is in top technical condition and equipped with all possible technical interpretations that you could wish for on a race car. The engine delivers approximately 160 hp in the current adjustment but can be stimulated a bit further if desired. The full technical specification can be found under the heading ‘Technical’.


The bodywork is rust-free and completely sandblasted during the earlier restoration and features both a 2K epoxy and top coating. The car is on a nice set of minilite rims with tires which are in very good condition. All doors close perfectly. The chrome is in generally good condition all around. All rubbers are present, in perfect condition and tight-fitting.


The interior has been completely converted to the FIA standard. The car is equipped with a safety cage with the required foam, bucket seats with seat belts, main power switch, extinguishing system and racing tank. The door panels are in neat condition, the other upholstery has been partially removed.
