As many things announced by Goverment institutions, kept in just promises. This car was never produced.

"Bauxicar", as the car is called, has a gasoline engine and an innovative solar panel for electric assistance. It has four speeds, radio-player and air conditioning, as well as barbecue for cargo and trunk.
The president of Bauxilum, indicated that this vehicle could be manufactured from 2005 in Ciudad Guayana and its cost would not exceed 15 million bolivars in its most equipped version.
"Bauxicar" will be the smallest car manufactured in Latin America, since it is 45 centimeters less in length than any other model.
The model was designed by Alcindo Agreda Pita, who for 30 years has worked on the design of aluminum vessels and had the idea of ​​presenting a vehicle made in Bolívar with Venezuelan aluminum and other materials, which could be used on all roads in the country.
In this regard, Amaro said that CVG-Bauxilum will support the project as part of the effort to comply with the policy of import substitution and productive diversification of the National Government, in which the Venezuelan Corporation of Guayana and its different companies in the sector are immersed Steel, iron and aluminum.
In addition to the "street" version, there could be a variant of the "Bauxicar", in the form of a mini-car, which would be used used in the industrial plants of the country for the provision of internal services, personnel transport, tools and materials.
"This mini-car would reduce costs by replacing conventional high-cost trucks with these economic transports, which may be called" Bauxi-Services, "he said.
For its part, the creator of the new vehicle, Alcindo Agreda, said that following the loss of its shipyard during the tragedy of the Vargas state, in 1999, he decided to venture into the automotive sector with a small and economical vehicle, but capable of dragging loads and serving in complicated environments, such as industrial plants.
"By using aluminum as the main material, Bauxicar becomes resistant to exposure to chemicals and temperatures that would affect other vehicles of its kind," he explained.

There is a photo of Ettore Chimeri standing next to some 250 GT TdF. The caption seems to mention the Copa Ciudad de Valencia, but none of cars with that appearance are known to have been in Venezuela around that time. Anyone have any idea to the identity of that car?

Chimeri drove #1037 for Julio Pola from time to time in that period.
I must be right - that's what it says on Wikipedia

Thanks for responding. But, 1037 GT had a later body style from new and wasn’t built at the time of the Premio Cuidad di Valencia in May 1958?

The closest I can get based on features would be 0619 GT (later renumbered to 0805 GT). It does have the same details as when raced in the Tour de France in 1957, notably the full width bug deflector on the hood.
