The only 365GTB/4 with period racing history in Asia, this car has a unique history and is immaculately well prepared. It’ll head to auction at Artcurial’s upcoming 2014 Le Mans Classic Sale.

It was originally imported into Singapore, where it remained unregistered until 1979 and was used purely as a competition car in events such as the Kallang Sprint, Dover Kilo and Pasir Gudang.

When it moved on to its second owner it was handed to Customer Support at Maranello for preparation work, before changing hands again and going to Stanley Long, who competed with the Singapore Motor Sports Association, Johor Motor Club and Classic Car Club of Hong Kong.

After an accident in the early ’90s the car was rebuilt to Group 4 Specifications, and 2001 saw it survive an engine fire, for which it received body repairs in Singapore before going to England in 2003 for a complete mechanical re-build by GTO Engineering.

Having survived an eventful three and a half decades the car entered a quiet period in the mid ’00s, eventually being registered in 2012 and making its way to its current owner.

The car is in great condition with superb Group 4 preparations and FIA documentation that’ll gain it entrance into the world’s most prestigious historic events. Storied and sorted, it looks like a great buy.

It’ll head to auction on July 5th, 2014, at Le Mans Classic 2014 by Artcurial Motorcars, and you can get the full details at Artcurial’s official website here.
