In recent years, the classic car market has seen a new breed of 'continuation' machines emerge from well-known workshops, officially sanctioned by a factory and often priced just as high as the original model.
CGA Race Engineering of Warrington in the UK took a shot at the 'continuation' market concept by recreating a 1976 Tyrrell P34, the only six-wheel car to race in and win in F1.
According to Sotheby's private sale specialist who is handling the car's sale, the P34 Official Continuation - which is one of two machines recreated by CGA in 2019/20 - was constructed from original Team Tyrrell drawings and with the full support and license of the Tyrrell Family.
The car, which is fitted with a Geoff Richardson Cosworth DFV and Hewland FG400 gearbox, was also built to the exact specification of Jody Scheckter’s 1976 Swedish GP winning chassis P34/3.
Sotheby's hasn't given an indication of this stunning recreation's price, but we'd venture to guess that the P34 'Continuation' sports a hefty price tag.
Finally, the car is eligible for numerous Historic F1 events, including Masters Historic Racing, Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Monaco Grand Prix Historique.
