1 of 3, 1st one built.Number 1nbsp; car was raced,nbsp;wrecked, and then restored.Number 3 was never raced and was stored in a musuem for most of its life, it is now apart of a private collection.nbsp;Offenhauser Engine2.5Lnbsp; 245HPnbsp; 195ft lbs torque 4 Cylinder EngineCorvette GearboxIndependent Suspension all aroundHalibrand rear end which has different drop gears so you can change the ratiosThe last front engine Grand Prix car and Americas 1stnbsp;Grand Prix carOwned by Lance RevenlowDriven by Stirling MossOne of the quickest Grand Prix cars, would race against the Maseratis and the Ferraris and 9 times out of 10 would winWill stand on its own against any European circuitsUncompetitive due to the engine and era1960 Scarab Grand Prix Story-Desmodromic valve gear had been a dream of engine designers for years. nbsp;In concept it positively mechanically controlled valve opening andnbsp;closing through two cams.nbsp; 2.5 litre, original dual overhead cam four-cylinder inline alloy block engine with desmodromic valve actuation andnbsp;Hilborn fuel injection; 267 bhp at 6,500rpm.1960 Scarab F-1 Grand Prix Scarab Formula 1 built in 1959-1960 using aluminum bodies,nbsp;only three were produced.nbsp;One of the greatest stories in the history of American sports car racing. What a couple of 18 yrs old kids by the name of Lance Reventlow and Bruce Kessler were able to accomplish in American and International Racing Circles isnbsp;nothing short of amazingnbsp;Scarab F1 had captured the imaginations of racing fans across America and around the world. The success of the Scarab sports-racers and the romance of anbsp;small team of Americans from southern California taking on the best of European constructors with an immaculately constructed and the construction andnbsp;finishing standards of the Scarabs were an order of magnitude beyond those seen on European GP cars.A tribute to the imagination and determination of one of historys great characters, Lance Reventlow, and the talented team he brought together in Venice,nbsp;California. Its appearance is electric, a handsome blending of form and function that is as innately pleasing as Lance Reventlows many beautiful womennbsp;companions. Its intricate desmodromic valve dual overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine may be the highest development of an American racing tradition.?The 2.5 litre, dual overhead cam four-cylinder inline alloy block engine with desmodromic valve actuation and Hilborn fuel injection; 267bhp atnbsp;6,500rpm, ladder-type four tube steel chassis with triangulated bays, front mounted transmission with quick-change rear differential, four-wheel Girlingnbsp;disc brakes, four-wheel independent suspension with triangulated arms and trailing arms andnbsp;nbsp;coil over shock absorbers plus anti-sway bars.? nbsp;The Scarab F1 first appearing to immense interest and fascination at Monaco. Reventlow offered Stirlingnbsp;Moss (driving a mid-engined Lotus 18 in the race) a chance to drive the Scarab. If anything Mosss talents behind the wheel masked the front-enginenbsp;Scarabs numerous shortcomings but even freshly completed and barely shaken down both Reventlow and Daigh would have been competitive with 1959 qualifyingnbsp;times in the season for which the Scarab F1 was designed.nbsp;nbsp;This Scarab, GP-2, is the only one to race at both the United States Grand Prix and the Gran Prix of Monaco. The Scarabs have become more sought after thannbsp;ever as the remaining important cars are locked away in serious racing collections and not likely to escape nbsp;The front-engined Scarab GP will never lacknbsp;for invitations to prestigious racing events, Concours, and shows where its thunderous exhaust and unique appearance will be the centerpiece of any paddocknbsp;display and will draw spectators from far and wide to its on-track performance.THE SCARAB SPORTS RACING amp; FORMULA ONE CARSnbsp;Young Lance Reventlows Scarab team was on top of the world at the end of the 1958 season.
