Many names: 1964 Matra Djet 5

We haven’t published many of these cars, but when we do we always have doubts as this car has been (and still is) always called differently, using more or less the same words.

René Bonnet Djet, Matra Bonnet Djet, Matra Sports Djet, Matra Sports Jet are the variants with which this model is called: we, for simplicity, will call it Matra Djet 5. The origin of this variability on the names is due to the fact that this car was built by René Bonnet, but after a few years Matra took over the ownership and so the name of the latter was added to the denomination of this model.

Back to the subject of this article, it is a car whose restoration began (and was interrupted) about ten years ago; the good thing is that although the work on the car has stopped, the owner still had time to rebuild the Gordini engine, so the new owner will have one less thing to think about. The seller says the car is complete except for the windshield, but it probably won’t be a big deal to find it if you search for it in France. Find it for sale at €27,000 (today $33,000) here in Bargemon, France.
