Lot 317: Gipsy Dino P 271 Inter Series

Grand Prix, Competition, Touring & Rally Cars, Coys (16 January 2010)

On behalf of Luigi Moreschi and Romano Martini ( known as "Shangrila) Italian racing firm Autocostruzioni GIPSY built this fabulous race car in 1971, constructed by Dallara, with the aim to take part at the 1000 km at Monza in the Prototype 2000 class. The engine is based on a 2 litre Ferrari Dino engine, fed by a Lucas racing- injection system, giving a power output of approximately 220-230 HP. The engine is mated to a Hewland FT 200 gearbox with several ratio possibilities.

The car started at Monza in 1971 and after several further outings - namely at the N´┐Żrburgring in 1972 - the car was then regulary raced in Italian hill climbs. Coming to us in excellent condition with a freshly rebuilt engine and gearbox and a set of new adjustable K&W coilovers, the car is described as to be ready to race. The Gipsy is well documented in starting lists and magazines of its period and comes with FIA papers.
