LeMans Coupe
Chassis #: 750 0015
In 1967 Carlo Chiti, working for Alfa Romeo and Autodelta designed the T33/2 to compete with the dominating Porsche 910's.

Local hero Nino Vaccarella and Udo Schutz ran the Targa Florio and Vaccarella had the car in second place behind Scarfiotti's Porsche 907 when he handed over to Schutz. That second might have translated into a win because the Porsche was soon to retire, but Vaccarella forgot to warn his co-driver of a patch of loose gravel about eight miles from the pits. It caught Schutz unaware and the car ended up in the wall.

In the Nurburgring 100kms it was driven by Schutz and Lucien Bianchi. There it proved stiff opposition to the works Porsches until delayed by a broken alternator belt - it finally finished seventh. A fourth place followed in the Austrian GP and then won at Mugello, a World Championship round in 1968, driven by Vaccarella, Bianchi and Ignazio Giunti.

The car raced a further six times in 1969, at Monza, in the Targa Florio, the Spa 1000kms, the Nurburgring 1000kms, in the Austrian GP and at LeMans. By this time the works was usually fielding 3-liter cars, but it finished 6th at Spa and 8th at Monza.
