But some cars that have raced at Le Mans have been so far outside the box that they deserve some kind of recognition. Some of these have been very successful, take the Bugatti Type 57G Tank or Mazda’s 787B that won the whole thing. One was designed with no intention of even finishing, just breaking a record – from WM and Peugeot. And some were… less successful.
These are the ones that we remember the most, from a twin-hulled torpedo built by a steering wheel company to one that looks a little like a sex toy. Which have been your favourite off-the-wall Le Mans racers?
