Chassis #002 was built in 1983 and was raced by the Lancia/Martini works team from 1983 to 1985. One of only five chassis built this car was the workhorse of the team and competed in more races than any other LC2.

In 1983 this car competed in 9 world championship events winning the Imola 1000Km and taking podium finishes at Kyalami and Mugello. This car qualified on pole for the 1984 Le Mans 24-hour race finishing 8th. In 1985 it qualified 3rd, lead for more than half the distance finally finishing 6th. It was clocked at 246 mph on the Mulsanne Straight.

Chassis #002 was purchased directly from Lancia-Fiat Auto S.P.A. in 1988 and underwent a 100 point ground-up restoration at the Canepa Design facilities in Scotts Valley, California. Total restoration cost was over $350,000.00 including 4000 hours of labour.
The current owner purchased the car in 2011 and spent a further £100,000 with Bob Berridge upgrading the car to the most competitive specification for racing. The car has been raced regularly in 2012 and finished 2nd overall at the Le Mans 24 Hours support race where it also posted fastest lap.
