Peter Brock was without question one of Australia's most famous sporting icons.  The Dakar Rally was an event that he aspired to do and he was viewed as his last great competition.  This car had been under construction and destined to take him to the Dakar.  Known as Peter Brock's last racing car, it is assembled but left unfinished, a monument to the legacy of Peter Brock.  Built by race car design and construction experts Design D'Ercole to whom Brock had signed for the Dakar program, it is a T3 Prototype class car built for outright contention and as such is a no compromise full space-frame bespoke racing car.  Underneath its composite panels it features a mid-engine location and 4WD, resembling the Holden Adventra road car, which it was to promote, in appearance only.  The car will be sold complete with all substantiating historic documentation and agreements in a coffee table book compendium.

The car is being utilised prior to the sale to commemorate the 5 year anniversary of Peter Brock's passing.  It also bears the signature of Brock's friend and former teammate who assisted in the 5 year anniversary publicity, Craig Lowndes.
