Chevrolet Corvette Le Mans (conversion)
Bizzarrini (conversion to Ford GT40 engine)
Atelier de Construction Automobile Sbarro was founded in April. The first car is a one-off Dominique III powered by 4.7 litre Ford V8 (original GT 40) engine. The number III refers to the third car designed by Franco Sbarro, the first two being Filipinetti 1 and Filipinetti 2.
Replicas of the famous racing Ford GT 40 are built on the chassis of the De Tomaso Pantera to the exact original specification.
Sbarro developed a racing car to meet the standards of the new Formula 5000. This car is equipped with an 8-cylinder engine of 5 liters developing 450 horsepower. The low weight of the car permits an incredible speed of 280 km/h.
