The Bandini 1000 is a race car, built in 1966 by Bandini Cars Forlì.

This new sports prototype, replaces the P 1000 which inherits the engine bialbero Bandini of 1000 cc engine displacement, constantly updated and improved (finally landed at rear), the scheme standstill four-wheel independent and structure of the chassis, which is only tightened with the use of new elements in the same material. With the 1000/66 the disc brakes become a constant for the following types, while entirely new for Bandini is the adoption of exchange Colotti five marches and the positioning of the twin radiator that are rear placed.

The chassis[]

The frame, designed and built by Ilario Bandini, is a development based on experiences gathered by the first motor car rear built. The 1000/66 is the car with which it is metabolized and exploited change happened with the1000 P, 1962 in this vein is considered the change in the distribution of weights and geometry of suspensions that resulted in new mergers of portamozzi.

The body[]

The two-seater sports car (little boat) is implemented fully by Bandini in aluminium. Extremely low, especially to the goalkeeper, is softly lies on the chassis highlighting the wheels; ray Borrani initially and later in Light Amadori. The air-intake front, close and rounded side is purely aesthetic and are functional the four big air behind the rear wheel that open just behind the cockpit well protected by screens in Plexiglas. The rear, is interrupted by a sharp vertical cut that originates a large oval opening to whose ends are the round headlights rear. More small openings tilted, the same form of that great earlier, highlight the shape of the rear wheel giving consistency to the whole body. Over the years, has been amended several times the roll-bar in the most recent version is hidden by a long fin and rounded longitudinal with the addition of head-rests. The original white livery and red was replaced at the end of the year 1971 with the current red and blue. Today it is exposed to the museum town Forlì.
