This was actually a test bed car but it did compete in one race.
Intended as a chassis to test Matra's V12 engine Ken Tyrrell persuaded Matra to let him fasten a Cosworth DFV in which form Jackie Stewart qualified it on the front row of the 1968 South African Grand Prix. However the engine failed during the race.
1967 Matra MS9 F1.
