The seller says:

“This car, chassis 0222, is the Bizzarrini works entry for the 1965 Le Mans 24 Hours race and features independent rear suspension and a quadruple Weber carburettor 400bhp Corvette engine. 0222 was raced by Regis Fraissinet and Baron Jean de Mortemart and claimed 9th overall, winning its class outright!

This special race car is for sale at this dealer in the UK.

Is anyone else surprised at how many Iso and Bizzarrini cars are coming up for sale lately? And at very high prices, either actual prices achieved at auction, or high asking prices.

It seems like the Iso and the Bizzarrini marques are on the upward move in value.
