Assegai Alfa Romeo 001

The Assegai Alfa Romeo F1 is a racecar built in 1961 in South Africa.

It was the first all South African F1 car, others had been built before but they used Cooper or Lotus parts. It is one of a planned team of four cars but the sponsor (Bond Tobacco Company)  pulled out before the others could be built.

The car had a 1500cc engine and was built by Tony Coetze. It was revolutionary for it's day being low to the ground and light.

The car is now housed at the Brooklands Museum.
