'Chassis SE037-001 undertook extensive testing duties both on track and in the wind tunnel following its completion, and was driven extensively by the likes of Markku Alen, Adartico Vudafieri and Giorgio Pianta. By 1982, the car was resplendent in the full Martini racing livery and it famously served as a Recce car in that year’s Acropolis Rally. When it’s official duties were over, the car passed into the private ownership of Sergio Limone, who undertook a meticulous restoration, returning this important car to its original development specification, including the correct specification 1,995 cc supercharged engine.'

I love it too. Even a flawed 037 is marriage material. Super car for the road and rally stages. Automobile mountain bike.

I saw this car yesterday, just south of Eindhoven (NL).






Looks exactly the same. Front plate is LAB 037.
Quite a menacing looking machine.
I love it!
that looks like it's the one that's going to auction, you'd think it would be on a proper covered car transporter considering it's value

That is marvellous. Looks a bit like I did leaving nightclubs at 6am on a Sunday morning in my 20s.

Similar colour too.
