This is a strikingly handsome revocation of an experimental OSCA prototype called the 1500 SP, of which only one example has been constructed to take part in the Le Mans 24 Hours Race. The design, materials employed and measurements were taken from an original OSCA chassis. The mechanical components, such as the close ratio four speed gearbox, differential and front and rear suspension are from the OSCA 1500 S, whilst the disc brakes come from Girling. Fed by twin Weber carburettors, the OSCA type 118000 twin overhead camshaft, four cylinder, 1,500cc engine develops over 100bhp at 6,000rpm and was serviced by Mondial in Bologna in
