Though production of the sports car lasted just three years, the Jag recorded wins at Le Mans, Sebring, and various other tracks before hanging up its helmet for good. All told, just 53 customer cars were built alongside the 18 factory team cars – and at least one of those examples has come up for sale.

The GT has been updated with a high-output alternator and a second front disc brake. But its main attraction is that drool-worthy L-twin engine, a 90-degree vee designed to rush extra cooling to the cylinders created by the all-time Ducati legend Fabio Taglioni.

Ducati V4 Streetfighter Concept

  Ducati V4 Streetfighter Concept If Ducati made a streetfighter with its new V4 motor, we hope it looks like this rendering.We’ll always love sportbikes, but the trend to naked superbikes cannot be ignored—and for good reason. The Aprilia Tuono V4, KTM Super Duke, and S1000R are all European bikes with true sportbike-beating performance and a more comfortable riding position to boot. As an added bonus the wide handlebars and grunty low-down kick makes them excellent machines to stunt on too, which means more smiles per hour than the fairing-clad counterparts from which they’re derived.

This is the for sale link for the bike. Comments have been suspended.

First released in 1971, that 90-degree layout marked a departure from the manufacturer’s traditional hairpins. The result of which made for a superior smooth ride and lengthened wheelbase.

And it was this very design that kicked-off Ducati’s superbike racing streak with Paul Smart’s unforgettable win at Imola back in ‘72. Previously racing with Team Hansen Kawasaki, the legendary racer was given an offer to take up with team Ducati. And take up he did.

In a 2008 interview with the Telegraph, Smart described seeing the bike for the motorcycle in his own words, "The bike looked much too long and too big to be a serious race machine but I was immediately impressed by Taglioni who reminded me very much of Doug Hele at Triumph - a good listener, very enthusiastic with a big smile and carrying a very clear picture of the complete race bike in his head. Like Hele, he knew what was needed to make the whole bike work and this encouraged me no end.”

And although Smart worried that the handling was too slow, he still managed to make history. To boot, Ducati promised Smart that if he won he could keep the bike. A promise that they most certainly followed through on. He still retains ownership of the ride and it is on display in the Ducati Museum in Bologna.

While this golden glory might not be the very model that bested Imola, it’s a stunning example of one of the best post-war motorcycles to date and a chance at owning a page right out of the Ducati history books.
