TheBandini 1000 P is a race car, built from 1959 until 1965 by Bandini Cars Forlì.

This new type of car, marks a radical change in the philosophy of approach to the competition of Bandini racing cars. If the tasks: speed, lightness and road holding remains unchanged, different is the way in which they are pursued.

The weight always enemy of speed and ally of Bandini, was upset in its distribution, moving to the rear for the first time, the entire engine-exchange-differential. This turning point underlying the definition of a draft vehicle, is opposed by the competitiveness of "Saponetta" 1000 cc. Particularly in races uphill, this is the first real opponent and touchstone for the 1000 motor rear, with which it shares the engine Bandini 1000 cm³, which in 1962, already reaches the 98 CV @ 8500 rpm.

The debut of the first prototype motor back in fact, dates back to 1959 to the circuit with engine Cesenatico 850 cm³ engine displacement (the first to use exclusively mergers Bandini) and the following year with the new engine 1000 cm³.

With the 1000 P an important novelty but also the return to the final four-wheel independent. The geometry of the rear suspension, tested on a copy of Formula Junior , is totally different than the first Bandini 1946 , And will be used for the types thereafter.

The Body

Teodoro Zeccoli in Cesenatico 1959


The body aluminium two-seater (boat) are built in Forlì by Bandini. Compared with Saponetta which is the root note stylistic common, 1000P lines has more tense and aggressive front end with a very low profile and an almost free variations in height. The headlights arrears, the air-intake and squared prominent, give the impression of being faced with a car that will not wait more than give demonstration of their capabilities. The bonnet rear hull partly also the wheels, is equipped with large grids side as the fin rounded behind the driver. Folding forward, allows easy access to the engine compartment. The introduction of roll-bar will force a reversal of opening towards and this is also amended the design of bonnet. Disappears grids side and the upper fin and open two air-intakes on the area of advanced rear wheel, more height compared to centreplane. Even the front undergoes a harmonization with the rear, now, more roundnessy. Is reduced lengthwise (so more at the bottom) and enlarged the size of lights, so I have a air-intake less square in shape. The slides covering the headlights are part of continuus lines of wheel and the overall appearance is more sweet.
