About the 908/3:

With regulation changes to Group 6 sports prototypes in 1969, modifications were done to the 908 using the 908/2 as a base. A lighter and more compact version of the 908 was designed in hopes of conquering the technical Targa Florio stage, and thus the 908/3 was born. Making it`s first appearance dressed in the unique Gulf colours, the 908/3 proved itself worthy by securing the top positions at the 1970 Targa Florio. In the following year various changes were made to the car, including the addition of rear fins, a winder rear body, increase in rear wheel size, and additional rollbars were added to the car?s frame. The newer version of the 908/3 not only brought the Martini team championship at the 1971 Nürburgring 1000km, but also secured all top three positions for the race.
