You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

Updated with the following...

Image
Ford GT110/X-1 Model by Spark.
First completed as an experimental light weight aluminum chassis it was handed over to Bruce McLaren as a Group 7 open roadster with the elongated nose and FIA windscreen. It raced 4 times unsuccessfully.
Late in 1965 the car was sent to Kar Kraft to have all the MKII improvements added and a rebody. It was left as an open car but the rest was standard MKII. It ended up winning its only race in Sebring 1966 after the #1031 car broke on the last lap while leading, giving the win to Ken Miles and Ruby. After being picked clean of its parts, the tub was finally destroyed in 1970.
