Ascari Ecosse & FGT

One of the first cars - the Ascari FGT - was originally designed by Lee Noble and later developed into a GT race car campaigned by then owner Klass Zwart. Its best results came from the Silverstone British GT championship where it managed a number of podium finishes as well as the British GT championship. It even entered Le Mans between 1995 to 1997.

The road variant 'FGT' model had a race-derived steel tube space frame chassis clothed in a light weight unstressed GRP body shell. It weighed in the region of 1250kg powered by either the 5.7 litre Chevrolet engine or later a BMW V8 (4.0l). Ecosse variants ran a 4.4 litre, 4.7 litre and even a very rare 5.0 litre Dutch-built Hartge engine.

The Ascari Ecosse and Ascari FGT are incredibly rare.

  • Of the eight Ascari Ecosses ever built, six remain in the UK.

  • Even fewer Ascari FGT cars are in existence, one of which has been converted to Ecosse headlights.

  • Two Ascari FGTs that we know of are in the UK

  • Up to three Ascari FGTs are believed to be in the US.
