Bandini 1000GT

The Bandini 1000 GT is a road car produced in 1963 by Bandini Cars of Forlì, Italy.

This road model, the second Bandini Gran Turismo, used the new engine, introduced in the sports cars of the same period, the (1000/62P and Saponetta 1000), detuned to increase reliability and limit interventions review. It was the first Bandini with a five-speed synchronized gearbox. The 1000 GT preserved the traditional front engine rear drive layout. The chassis benefitted from experience with the rear-engined 1000P and uses a design directly derived from the sport that precedes the same system and front and rear suspension. On the front wheels are disc brakes, while the rear drum remain.
