Kit Details

■The MATRA (Mécanique Aviation Traction) company, one of the French company's focus was on aeronautics and weaponry development in the 20th century, entered the motorsports racing society in mid-1960s, with the support of the Charles de Gaulle administration with a newly established automobile subsidiary.

They joined F1 starting from 1967, and the MS10 provided to the satellite team with 3 wins in the 1968 championship season using the Ford DFV engine. In the same year, other than the satellite team, they rolled out the MS11 for the all-French factory-backed team.

Many of the parts which constructing the MS11 are made in France, and the MATRA V12 engine with 12, 60 degrees V-cylinder and DOHC4 valves , generating 420 horsepower that was as powerful as the V8 engines at that time, but lighter and more compact.

The driver of the MS11, Jean-Pierre Beltoise, the Frenchman who raced for the MATRA team starting from F3 racing. He finished 2nd in the Dutch GP, and Jackie Stewart  won the race giving Matra their first victory, and first 1, 2 finish.

The results of MS11 may be less shiny as the MS10 in the same season, however, with the unique engine sound of the MATRA V12 engine, and with their “made in France, win for France” spirit, the MS11 should be left in the Grand Prix history.
