MechanicallyThe car is equipped with a 1960cc Coventry Climax engine, which is capable of producing approximately 190 horsepower. The vehicle is fully compliant with the rules and regulations of the FIA, and it operates with ultra-rare SU DU6 carburettors, which were developed by SU specifically for racing purposes. The renewal of the car's FIA Historic Technical Passport (HTP) paperwork is in the final stages of the approval process and has just been signed off. In more recent years, the car has proven itself on the track with successful performances in both the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association (HGPCA) and at various Goodwood events.
Sir Stirling MossDuring the mid-1990s, the vehicle underwent a restoration process that included a fresh coat of paint in the iconic Rob Walker colours that Sir Stirling Moss famously raced with in period. Sir Stirling Moss himself had the opportunity to drive this actual car during a demonstration race at the 1994 Australian Grand Prix. The car's historical significance and its association with the legendary driver were recognized when it was invited to participate in the Sir Stirling Moss tribute at the 2021 Goodwood Revival event. The current owner of the car was honoured to bring it to the event and be a part of the celebration of Sir Stirling Moss's contributions to the world of motorsports.
