In 1968, American Motors sought to focus on more performance-based products that could better compete with foreign competition and infuse excitement in the brand. Richard “Dick” Teague, the head of design at AMC, was tasked with designing a mid-engine sports car, which resulted in the AMX/3 programme.
The programme collaborated with other firms, which included BMW, ItalDesign and Bizzarrini to assist with the engineering and design elements of the AMX/3. This example is known as the Monza car, due to the aerodynamic development that Bizzarrini put it through at the racetrack in 1970, testing that resulted in a top speed of 170 mph.
After an extensive concours-quality restoration, this AMX/3 won First in Class at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, in the featured Bizzarrini class.
This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of American automotive history.
