“This is the very first time I saw this icon in real life and I have to admit it blew my mind. Maybe it’s just that engine sound, maybe for its dimensions and shapes but I finally understood why it’s considered one of the most beautiful car ever made.”via: 19Bozzy92
The first prototype was shown to the public in 1967 during the Italian F1 GP in Monza and the plan was to built a little limited series of 50 examples. But only 18 were built and possibly only 10 of them are still in existence.
This is a 2.0-litre V8 engine with 230 hp with an insane 10,000 rpm red line that was able to push the 700 kg car from 0 to 100 Km/h in just 5,5 seconds and hit a top speed of 270 km/h.
The car was launched on the market at an astronomical sum of almost 10 million Italian lire of the period (for a mere comparison you needed around 5 millions to buy a Jaguard and 6 for a Ferrari).
