Perfect for the forthcoming Le Mans Classic and Spa Classic.

This is a recreation of the Works six-cylinder car the was being built for the 1966 Le Mans. Due to rule changes, the car was never completed.

This beautiful recreation of that Le Mans six-cylinder car was constructed on a 1963 Triumph Spitfire chassis using all composite bodywork and includes a fabulous specification. Its registration number echoes the period competition Spitfires who wore the ADU number plates. The car is fitted with a 2.0 litre straight six Triumph engine with a Peter Burgess head, Le Mans oil filter, a Type 9 close ratio five speed gearbox and a Quaife limited slip differential. Fuel is delivered via an electric pump feeding the triple 40 DCOE Dell’Orto carburettors. Exhaust extraction is by means of a tubular extractor manifold through a full stainless steel system. A 123 distributor provides the sparks and an aluminium radiator and oil cooler provide the cooling. Stopping power is delivered via the Lockheed four pot callipers and ventilated discs at the front with GT6 drums at the rear. The brake system has an adjustable biased twin circuit, as per the original prototype. The front suspension has the Lotus trunnionless set up with aluminium hubs whilst at the rear, CV drive shafts and an aluminium lower wishbone conversion stop the infamous Spitfire rear wheel tuck under. Gaz adjustable shock absorbers are fitted on all four corners. The interior is fitted with a half roll cage and F.I.A. four point harnesses with bucket seats. The instrument panel has several gauges to keep the driver well informed and a Moto-Lita leather/aluminium steering wheel provides directional control. An aluminium period replica fuel tank sits behind the seats and is fed via a large, quick release Le Mans style fuel filler. On the road the car is stunning to drive with the powerful six-cylinder engine delivering power low down, but it is not until the revs reach 4,000 rpm that this fabulous car takes on another life. With the CV jointed driveshafts and lower wishbones, handling is exceptional and corners can be taken with the utmost confidence.

ADU 5A is UK registered as a 1963 Triumph Spitfire Sports with its 2000cc engine capacity also recorded upon the V5 UK registration document. The car has been a regular presence at many events including the Brooklands Double Twelve, Kop Hill and Goodwood Member’s Meetings. ADU 5A also attended the 2012 and 2016 Le Mans Classic during which the car was driven by Claude Dubois, then aged 84. Claude drove the car in a very spirited way belying his age. He commented how lively the car was and how much it reminded him of his drive in the ‘Works’ Triumph Spitfire at Le Mans in 1965; he even signed the driver’s side roof. Valued at £70,000 for insurance purposes, ADU 5A is offered at a very attractive price and certainly reflects the spirit of the 1960’s Triumph racing cars; a tribute to a bygone age of Le Mans motor racing.

Complete with x2 sets of wheels, the Le Mans wheels, a set of five Minilites and various other bits & bobs.
