This Supercar was built by Perkins Engineering for the 2000 V8 Supercar season and was raced by Russell Ingall. This car carries chassis number PE-036 and has CAMS roll over certification number R0018.
This was one of the most controversial cars to enter the V8 Supercars series to that date, being the first supercar to have the diagonal brace bar behind the windscreen, known as the ‘Larry Bar’, installed from new. Also this car is the very first of four supercars to have dual main roll over hoops, also installed from new.
The car was raced throughout the single-driver rounds of the 2000 ATCC by ‘The Enforcer’ Russell Ingall and then by Cameron Murchison and Luke Youlden at Bathurst. It was the same car that received a one-off deep blue/aqua ‘Magnatec’ Castol livery for the Canberra race that season.
Presented in its original livery the car has a genuine 5 litre Perkins motor with upgraded Harrop injection manifolds, Motec ECU and wiring upgrade dine by Team kiwi Racing who bought the car at the end of the 2008 V8 Supercars season and ran for it for another three years.
