9S HTP Sports Racing Car
The 9S was regarded by many in the sixties as one of the most rewarding race cars to drive as well as one of the prettiest cars of its era – a claim that can justifiably still be made today. In 2005, when the FIA decided to permit the original manufactures of racing cars to produce continuation models to comply with the new HTP regulations, the opportunity for many historic racers to experience these values once again, became a reality.
