1978 Osella PA8

The PA8 was built after several successful years of building racecars for the FIA 2-liter class. Built out of Italy this small volume manufacturer took on the best that Lola and Chevron could produce.

Our feature example, chassis 096, was campaigned by Fabio Stradella in many European hillcimbs.

The car was raced and developed in the 1990s.
