Can Robin Stainer or anyone else confirm: Was this the real CSX2016 on display at this week's Zandvoort Historic Grand Prix? The car is wearing a Swiss registration plate: SZ71683. It shared tent space with a pair of Lotus 11s.

Afraid I don't have much more background info to share, as I wasn't there in person. This is a webfind photo taken by Marc Noordink.

The car resembles the real CSX2016 when it was for sale through Fantasy Junction (Emeryville CA) and Peter Bradfield (London UK) a decade ago. The dark green paint and tan interior match. The nose emblem matches. The lack of side vents and side emblems match. The side mirrors match. The tri-bar headlamps and front turn signals match. The chrome wire wheels and Pirelli tires match. However, the chrome rollbar has been removed (it didn't penetrate the sheet metal) and the hood scoop is missing.

Sundude,

The ACOC Cobra register records this as the original CSX2016, imported into the UK in 2011 by Peter Bradfield.

ACOC Cobra register appendix 2.1 (Replica Leaf Spring Cars) records a replica CSX2016 made circa 2012 reg 111 JX "Constructor unknown. Fast-back hardtop, short bottom-hinged boot, cut back doors, six-point roll cage, Rose-jointed, 6.5"/8.5" Halibrands, side vents, rack & pinion.  FIA HTP."

Both cars have the same last known owner.

The SAAC Register has further public domain detail.
