Wonderful authorised continuation; 'Matra-Ford' specifications with GT40 engine; Terribly exotic on the vintage race car scene; This wonderful car, chassis 630-05 was built upon the original drawings by ex. Matra people via the company EPAF with authorization from Matra. Accordingly it received a Matra chassis number and chassis plate. As the original Matra-Ford chassis 02 later received the Matra V12 engine, consequently there were no more Matra-Fords. The Lagardre Group ( owner of the Matra brand ) then decided in 2007 to authorize the build of continuation cars to complete the missing link between the MS620 and 650, so the legendary line of Matra prototypes could be complete. Chassis 05 has been constructed to the highest standards and in accordance with the original blue prints. This car that weights in at only 820kg and is fitted with a high performance GT40 engine, immediately displayed its considerable potential as a vintage racer. After 40 years of development on the Ford engine, the Matra-Ford makes it an even better car for vintage racing. After a few testing sessions and after acquiring its FIA HTP, it was entered in 2013 in the Master Series at the Barcelona ( 2.05sec ) and Dijon (1.30sec ) rounds. It immediately demonstrated its turn of speed lapping quicker than GT40s for instance for its first two outings. In 2014 its current owner gave the car to Art & Revs for a thorough preparation. It received the latest specification engine and various period correct modifications to increase its potential. It was entered in the 2014 Daytona Classic and won the qualifying race on Friday, lapping consistently in 1.57sec. However the biggest surprise was the car's stability which enabled it to reach 295 km/h on the banking. The car enjoyed great success there and was the subject to an extensive article in the Vintage Motorsport magazine. Matras are extremely rare on the vintage racing scene and always attract a great deal of attention and this car would be welcome at any major event. Now completely serviced and ready to race, this wonderful MS 630 is a unique opportunity to acquire a very fast and easy to maintain Matra Sports Prototype.
