at auction next month, the recent Best In Class winner of Pebble Beach's Bizzarrini class, the AMX 3 prototype that went over 160 mph at Monza. Incredibly rare, extensively documented from new, and freshly restored to elite concours-winning form, someone will SCORE when they buy this

Designed by Bizzarrini, engineered by BMW, Italdesign, and Bizzarrini.  Built at Autocostruzione ‘SD’, and  taken to Munich-BMW for static tests, then it was returned to Livorno, where it began its road tests, which ended in Monza with the accomplishment of a lap time of 1 minute, 59.8 seconds.”

It debuted in Rome, the day before the Pantera.

Following cancellation of the AMX/3 program, the car remained in Italy. But American Motors agreed to sell an AMX/3 to a consultant and friend of the president of AMC.

It was restored at Bill de Carr’s famous hot rod shop in Bellfower, California, in preparation for the '90 Pebble Beach

In 2014 it was restored again, this time by the finest experts in Germany. Following completion of the first stage, the AMX/3 was shown at the 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, followed by the second, more involved stage, in preparation for the car’s display at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2016.
