This vehicle was one of four 1956 Works Team Cars. After the 1957 season, it was sold to a Swedish resident who raced it at Goodwood and other European events until 1961 when it was then sold to a Swiss resident. It was sold again in 1988. The current owner has run the Mille Miglia twice and is scheduled to run it again in 2012.
The MT4 has a ladder-type tubular chassis on a 87-inch wheelbase. It is powered by a dual-overhead cam, 1.5-liter, 4-cylidner engine offering 120 horsepower coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission.
Another MT4, piloted by Stirling Moss and Bill Lloyd, scored a victory at the 1954 Sebring 12 Hours, beating cars with much bigger engines.
