Paul Newman had a racing career that was nearly as extensive as his film career. In 1979, when he won the SCCA C-Production Championship, he said that victory was “better than the Oscars.” It doesn’t take an expert to notice that this 280ZX, which Newman drove in the IMSA GTX series for Bob Sharp Racing, is a radical departure from the production version. It is in fact a bespoke racecar that took advantage of every rule (or lack thereof) in the book. It’s tube frame chassis supports a massive wide-body that extends the rear-end far beyond the car’s standard dimensions. The result is amazing downforce to help maintain grip when the massive turbo-charged motor spools up. Newman was not known to be a spectacular driver, but he was renowned for his disciplined car control and unrelenting focus. Those are two things that are keys to reeling in this historic racecar.
