The 1968 yellow LMX Sirex 2300 by Italian collector Renato Montalbano won the first prize in the “Rock” category at the second edition of Festivalcar, event organized by the car webzine Autoappassionati.it and born to celebrate the passion for the automobile, where supercars, cars of historical interest and Italian excellence meet in the characteristic village of Revigliasco Torinese.
This is the first time that an LMX from the Montalbano collection participates in a concours d’elegance, so for the collector it was a great satisfaction to bring home this victory.
The LMX is a GT car with distinctly sporting characteristics designed in Milan and built in Turin in the late 60’s.
The model presented is in original condition with some conservative interventions and is one of the very few equipped with the turbocharger developed by the pilot and engineer Michael May.
This award came exactly one year after the exhibition held at MAUTO (National Automobile Museum of Italy) and curated by Raffaello Porro, present as co-pilot at the concours together with the collector Montalbano.
