This very desirable Zakspeed Escort was delivered new to the famous Italian driver Martino Finotto, who raced for 20 years at the top level, (IMSA, Endurance World Championship, European Touring Championship and Le Mans).

Most of the Escorts racing in period were Broadspeed versions, (now racing in historic events). This one is a very rare Zakspeed that is similar to the model driven by works driver Hans Heyer, (Castrol colours) which won many international races in 1973/1974.

Finotto used this car to great effect during the 1973/1974 seasons, documented in Autosprint, including a superb 3rd overall in the Giro d’Italia against cars with much more power, like the works Lancia and Porsche.
