The Sauber C8 was the first prototype of the Swiss company built in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and introduced in 1985 for the 24h Le Mans race. For 1986 two more chassis were built and raced for a full season of the World Sportscar Championship under the Kouros Racing Team name. It was able to achieve a victory with drivers Henri Pescarolo and Mike Thackwell at the 1986 1000km of Nürburgring.

The car is powered by a Mercedes M117 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine able to produce around 700 hp and 800 Nm of torque and reaching a top speed of 370 km/h. Watch and hear it in action during the 2019 Monza Historic racing weekend by Peter Auto.
