Introduced in 1962, the 96 Sport model was the raciest of the breed and reflected its competition breeding. The shrieking two-stroke pushed out a heady 57bhp and the model soon proved its mettle
in rallying. Factory driver Erik Carlsson won the 1960, 1961 and 1962 RAC rallies in addition to the 1962 and ‘63 Monte Carlo classics. Three years later, the Sport was renamed Monte Carlo to reflect its top-level success. As marketing opportunities went, it was a case of too little too late, although this special edition is highly-prized today.
