For Sale: 1971 Matra F1 MS120
This lovely ex-Chris Amon Matra MS120 is for sale through Art & Revs Luxembourg.
It debuted in 1971 with a victory in the non-championship round in Argentina, finishing ahead of Henri Pescarolo and Carlos Reutemann over the aggregated two-heat event. Amon campaigned the car throughout the ’71 Formula One season, achieving the car’s best finish of third in the Spanish Grand Prix.
The car was upgraded for the start of the ’72 season and used until Brands Hatch, where Amon guided it to fourth place.
Since retiring from Formula One competition the car has run successfully in historic racing, winning its category at the Monaco Grand Prix Historique in 2008. It has received a full rebuild and is currently the only MS120 race-ready with original specifications.
It’s also a wonderful opportunity to take control of that awe-inspiring Matra howl!
