In addition, I was also told at the stame time that the car had been found in Switzerland and was fitted with an FT200 and BDH engine. The name of the Swiss owner was never released. There was an article published one year ago in a French magazine (Retro Course n° 26) on the car where the Brazilian connection was indicated. Mind you, the car now fitted with a BMW engine is said to be very original. When was the last time you saw an RP6 in period with a BMW 2002 engine ?
I saw the car in the late 90 ´s in switzerland in the garage
from Charles Croset - fitted with an BDH and FT 200 under
restauration !
I had the copy from the Original import Papers from the 11.01.1972
The paper says Royale RP 4 / 7 !!
