Regular price $26.00
This wasn’t the first Ferrari win at Le Mans – that had come in 1949, when future Ferrari legened Luigi Chinetti and Peter Mitchell-Thompson had steered a privately entered 166 MM to victory. But the 1954 triumph was the first of many for the works Scuderia – and it was a classic. The bellowing five-liter V12 had a power advantage over its primary opposition, the Jaguar D-types, but this was neutralized by regular rainfall, and it took all the prudence of Maurice Trintignant and the brio of Jose Froilan Gonzales to keep the No. 4 Ferrari at the front. With two hours to go, the Ferrari lost seven minutes in the pits with soaked electrics, allowing the sole remaining Jaguar back on the lead lap, but Gonzales clung on to win by three minutes. RACER artist Paul Laguette captures the mighty Argentine with a handful of opposite lock – inevitable with 330hp being transferred to relatively skinny crossplies – in one of Ferrari’s most handsome open-top cars.
