Locally manufactured in South Africa, the Wagener Special was designed by Phillip Wagener in June 1970 and took just 18 months to build from start to finish. It has the chassis and suspension from a Lotus Elan for excellent handling characteristics and is powered by a 118bhp 1600cc Alfa Romeo engine coupled to a 5 speed manual gearbox. The body was crafted using aluminium to the creator's specifications making it lightweight. Due to its rarity and specifications, it has caught the eyes of the media and has featured in numerous publications such as Classic Car Africa and several others.
After Phillip's passing in 2010, the Wagener Special was sold to a well-known classic car enthusiast and historic racer from Cape Town. Since taking ownership, the only mechanical adjustment made to the Special was a bespoke exhaust system designed by the owner.
In October 2019 this car completed the 10 day Yangtze River Delta classic car rally in China.
It is on display in the Crossley & Webb showroom in Cape Town and can be viewed and inspected until 2pm on Saturday the 12th of September 2020
