From the listing for this 1973 BRM F1 car for sale:
1973 BRM P160E – Chassis 10
The most original BRM P160 in existence. Three owners from new, original BRM chassis, original BRM V12 motor and original BRM gearbox. Sold by BRM to the Donington Museum on 22 October 1981 where it resided for 34 years until purchased by the current Australian collector (via Hall and Hall). The BRM has undergone a comprehensive restoration that respected and retained original patina where possible. Has had one race meeting and one track day since restoration.
The BRM P160 was a Formula One racing car designed by Tony Southgate for the British Racing Motors team, which raced in the 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1974 Formula One seasons. It was powered by a 3.0-litre V12 engine.At the end of 1969, owner Sir Alfred Owen recognised drastic measures were required to get BRM back on track. This resulted in a complete management shuffle with long time designer Tony Rudd being replaced by Tony Southgate. The young engineer had already built up an impressive resume at Lola and All American Racers despite being just 29 years old at the time. Encouraged by the performance shown in 1970, Southgate used the P153 as the basis for the ‘new’ P160. It featured a lower monocoque, sharper lines and revised suspension geometry. Tweaked once again by engineer Aubrey Woods, the V12 could now safely rev to 10,800 rpm. For a brief period of time, the Tony Southgate designed P153 and subsequent P160 brought BRM back to the front of the grid.
