Chassis 332, was entered in the World Endurance Championship by the British team Charles Ivey Racing.

The proposed car is to be restored. The initial project of its owner was to motorize it with a Ford Cosworth V8. This TIGA is therefore sold with a V8 Cosworth 3 liters engine which is dismantled to facilitate its inspection and a Hewland DG 300. Note that Mr Charles Ivey being a Porsche specialist, this TIGA GC287 had the particularity to be powered at the time by a Porsche 956 engine. Moreover, it was the only TIGA Group C2 to have received this engine while most of the TIGAs that ran in Europe were powered by the Ford Cosworth V8.

This Tiga GC287 once restored will be able to be entered in the prestigious Group C series in the C2 category as well as at the Le Mans Classic.
