2004 Ascari Ecosse

The final Ascari Ecosse made and a unique opportunity to own this incredibly rare super car. With exceptional history and the first example to be offered for sale to date.

When Klaas Zwart, owner of the famous Ascari race circuit decided to produce his own super car, he spared no expense in sourcing the finest materials and talent to create his dream.

Naming his car in honour of the first Formula 1 World Champion, Zwart employed the skills of the UK’s best Formula 1 designers and engineers to both develop and build the Ascari Ecosse.

The intention was to produce a lightweight super car capable of blistering performance whilst still being able to be driven comfortably to the race track.

Kevlar bodywork meant the Ecosse weighed in at 1250Kg with performance guaranteed by the mid-mounted Hartge-tuned BMW V8 producing almost 85bhp per Ltr.

With 0-60mph times of 4.0 seconds and the performance and handling characteristics of a track-focused super car, the Ecosse remains incredibly easy to drive in normal road conditions. The Hartge/BMW power provides effortless performance and instant torque capable of pulling easily from low revs in high gears. This dynamic performance when matched to a proven, space-frame chassis developed by Lee Noble proved the prefect formula to ensure the required results.

The project was hugely expensive and just seventeen examples of the Ascari Ecosse were produced. With only 7 models being made in RHD, this is the final edition car and no. 17 of just 17 made.

Finished in Deep Maroon metallic with grey leather interior and having covered just 11,000 miles. Complete with a fully documented history having been meticulously cared for throughout by the team responsible for creating and building the car when new.

A rare and exciting opportunity to purchase the only Ascari Ecosse to have been offered for sale until now.
