Indianapolis 500 Winning March 86C at Gooding's Pebble Beach Auctions

1986 March 86C (Estimate: $1,500,000 – $2,000,000)


A tried and true racing champion, this 1986 March 86C, chassis 86C-13, was famously driven to victory in the 1986 Indy 500 by Indianapolis Speedway Hall of Famer Bobby Rahal. The brainchild of March Engineering and Jim Trueman’s Truesports racing team, the March 86C was designed by Adrian Newey as a versatile car to be successful in various styles of races and tracks. Indeed, it proved itself in countless races, culminating in five more wins with Rahal in that season alone, and a 1st place finish in the 1986 CART Championship.


The offering of 86C-13 presents the rare opportunity to own an Indy 500 winner and iconic competition car. It still retains the same Cosworth DFX turbocharged V-8 engine that powered its win at Indianapolis, and it has impeccable provenance, having been purchased by the consignor in 1990 directly from the Truesports racing team. Its decorated livery includes prominent Budweiser sponsorship, as well as Jim Trueman’s “Happy Birthday” sticker.
