DBE-45 was the only B8 to escape a racing life and sold for road use and offered with supporting "Pink Slip" to an American playboy.

The car proved to difficult for even occasional road use and was soon parked up and fell into disrepair for some 30 years before being shipped to Switzerland where it was restored and used for hill climbing until 2003 when it was brought back to the UK and brought up to full racing specification.

I have owned the cars since 2012 and carrying out a meticulous ground up rebuild in 2015 with new brake master cylinders / callipers / rotors, new ProLite 350 / Aeroquip hoses / fittings, new purpose moulded shatter proof acrylic windows, professionally wired by a race car electrician, new Willans FIA fuel bag, all new NMB rod ends / track ends / spherical bearing / wheel bearings. New Koni (correct period) shocks, and complete back to gel coat re-paint.

The car has had very little running since and comes with a completely rebuilt engine Zero miles  M10 BWM built to highest spec with new rods, crank, valves and guides, and Zero miles Mark Baily FT 200 gearbox.

Can be raced being just about eligible for everything, including Master, Peter Auto, Guards Trophy and many more.

The cars come with new type 2016 HTP, additional long range fule tank, Lifeline Zero 360 electric fire system, ignition system, nose and other misc items.

Any inspection welcome.
