"We recently stumbled upon the trailer for the forthcoming documentary on the making of Steve McQueen's 1970 passion project Le Mans. If you're reading this you probably know a fair bit about the story. It was a madly complex production shot "
DB Le Mans
Stumbled across this – another car, in a lifetime of spotting cars, that we had never heard of.
You can see where the makers sought to pitch the idea of a nippy lightweight sportster – reaching out to the sort of dashing market of rare groovers – who might have partaken in an Alfa Duetto or a baby Facel if they had not had a penchent for mini fins and weaved panels.
The Le Mans moniker may have been a trifle audacious considering the twinny motor. But, by all acounts it was a fun ride all the same.
Probably not to be spotted at a kerb near you any time soon.
