Review by: James Pearce
The Ascari FGT used a 4 litre BMW engine and a ZF 5 spd DS-5/25
transmission [other GM and Ford V8s were also tested... Ed].
The FGT was later face lifted to become the Ascari
Ecosse model. For this model the interior was changed, wiring
system updated, and braking system upgraded. It had a Hartge
4.6 litre BMW engine. Towards the end of Ecosse production it
received a Hartge 5.0 litre engine and they tried out a six
speed 'box, but then went back to a five speed unit. There was
one 4.6 litre Ecosse that ran a Quaife 6spd sequential gearbox.
