We here at Titan Historic Racing are proud to introduce one of our newest car to our already fine collection of historic racing cars, the Chevron B8!
This hugely successful B8, is the EX Works car that went to South Africa in 1968 once we received the car we sent it off the Vin at Chevron so it could be lovingly be restored using all original components where possible even down to the BMW badge on the nose alongside Chevron. Chevron has also resorted it back to its original white colour and added 2 very special names onto the roof, Derek Bennet the brilliant self-taught designer for Chevron and Digby Martland Chevrons driver. These names makes this car even more unique as it is the only one of it kind with these added touches.
Last year in 2017 the car was completely rebuilt and all ready for its debut season racing with Tian Historic all-around Europe, it was especially popular in Zandvoort when it was paraded around the streets for all to see and admire.
Just by looking at this car you can tell it is an animal on the track with its powerful 2 Litre BMW 4-cylinder engine, with a Hewland FT200 gear box and complete original Chevron wishbone and links
