Cars that rock Le Mans Classic: 1963 Panhard CD

On paper at least, a 900cc air-cooled twin-cylinder engine in a 1963 Panhard CD isn’t exactly going to put creases in the tarmac. In practice, it probably couldn’t even put creases in the paper …

However, when said motor is slotted into this very unusual, very light, and very cool body it makes for an effortlessly elegant racing car, and we love it.

It had no chance of competing with such brutes as the Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta, Lister Costin Jaguar, and Aston Martin DB4 GT it ran with, but that just made us love it all the more.
