This Monza, meticulously constructed to mirror the original IMSA specifications, was built by a French privateer around 2008 and has seen extensive racing action. It utilizes a standard production frame from 1977, though it's officially recognized as a 1975 model on its Historic Technical Passport (HTP). The construction costs exceeded €150,000, showcasing exceptional attention to detail. Powered by a GM V8 engine delivering approximately 650bhp, the Monza has demonstrated its competitiveness, often matching the pace of Porsche 935s and other contemporaries.
The car's race engineer confirms its remarkable speed; in four races during 2021, it consistently placed in the top three. Its vibrant racing history includes participation in events like Le Castellet in 2017, the Classic Endurance series in Dijon during 2018/2019, and impressive showings at the Le Mans Classic from 2016 to 2019.
In June 2021, renowned Belgian racer Marc Duez piloted this Monza at the Belcar Historic Cup in Spa Francorchamps, securing a victory and recording the fastest lap time of 2m 40.138s! Additionally, Frederic Bouvy drove it to a GT win at the Circuit Paul Armagnac à Nogaro in July 2021.
An enticing opportunity for enthusiasts of historic racing, this striking IMSA Monza is accompanied by an FFSA Passport from 2010 and an HTP from 2014.
