Here the story of the car as it is now, begins. The owner began a quest to return the car to its original, unique, Le-Mans-hopeful state. A full bodywork restoration including that delicious yet comically long Mulsanne straight-friendly tail ensued, with a 3.0-litre V12 heart transplant to follow. Once returned to its unique original spec', the car got the attention of the Rofgo collection. A considerable financial exchange later, and the car is, as of a week ago, back on our side of the Atlantic in the blue and orange Rofgo ranks. 75MM is the car’s first outing, and a static one at that. They’ve barely had time to polish it, and it’s barely shaken off the jet lag, but we are so glad it’s here. Some sportscars are so indisputably beautiful that they transcend their less than auspicious motorsport careers. Here’s hoping Rofgo get it running like it never has, and that we might see the M6 flourish yet.
For now, savour the quintessentially eccentric yet stunning ‘70s sportscar aesthetics in the extensive gallery above.
