Dick Protheroe,  British gentleman racer, had the car re-bodied to P2 style by Drogo, but then he crashed fatally with the car.

The remains were eventually acquired by Mike Oustromoff, who used the original engine and chassis for a reconstruction. After a brief spell in the United States, the car was bought by Fabrizio Violati in 1985 for his Maranello Rosso museum.
