Mr. Wermelinger utilized the car for its intended purpose of dominating Europe's road race courses and hill climbs. It was eventually sold to one of the leading Swiss road racing teams (Didier Burgisser) who continued to campaign the car for many years. This car has the special General Motors Suisse S.A.
