I think they are auctioning this test 30k - it would be a lot of fun!

If it is the same car, I saw it being built up over time at a local specialist workshop. Very nice.

Why the number "0"? The Degrada I saw in the USA was also given No. "0"! Photo shows it at Sonoda Raceway. Shame about the silencers.

It's the number given to the course car generally, one that checks the stage is clear for the competitors.

It is, or was, John Day's car, hence "Day & White's" and "GT Alfa Romeo" visible on the car in the ebay listing. Or rather, he was the driver. And yes, it was at a Goodwood Track Day several years ago. I've got photos from that very day somewhere, I'll see if I can dig them out. As, I'm sure, has Tony Harrison. Now I've just got to find circa 30K!  Wink

Here's the original at Watkins Glen 1980.

You can see the difference in the front wheel size on the Watkins glen car.

I think I heard the paint scheme was designed to make it difficult for other drivers to judge how close they were to it when trying to squeeze past, or is that just an urban myth?

I am surprised the asking price is not greater.

There are other differences too, the Watkins Glen car looks to have full Monte Carlo doors with drop glass and quarterlights, the panel side panel behind the front wheel covering the A post is much deeper, the oval indicator looks like it's early Fulvia etc etc.

The price quoted is an auction guide, is there a reserve? I've bought my lottery ticket and would love to be able to put this car in the garage! There was a similar paint scheme in red and black (I think) which is even more striking.

There was indeed a red and black car. But red and white is nice too! (Watkins Glen 1980)

Weren't there 3 of them in different colours at Brands and/or Silverstone with Patrese & Alboreto and maybe De Cesaris? I seem to remember being given a Press Pack by Gerald Sims at Ivor Hill way back then as I had bought a Monte Carlo from them and I think the 3 stickers are still on my toolbox. The colour schemes were very innovative then.
