The engine is an in-line 6-cylinder with twin overhead-cams, 2,443 cc displacement, developing 87 horsepower. This engine proved worthy of sports competition where quick and continuous acceleration was assured.
This car was delivered to Swiss owners who retained the car until purchased by the current owners in 1988. It was exported to the United States in the late 1990s. It has been shown at the 2003 Radnor Concours d'Elegance and the 2005 Amelia Island Concours. It was awarded the Spirit of Amelia Award. It has also won Best of Show at the 1987 show event in Switzerland.
This car has been driven less than 36,000 kilometers since new. In 2008, this Sport Cabriolet was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $325,000 - $400,000 and offered with a reserve. A high bid of $341,000, including buyer's premium, was enough to secure new ownership. The lot was sold.
