This car, chassis number XKC051, was powered by a 6 cylinder in-line engine with 3.4 litres of engine capacity pushing out 220bhp, which gave a top speed of 230kph. This model is finished accurately in British Racing Green with the correct racing number positions, and the photo-etched front grilles reveal the central mounted headlights that enabled the drivers to thread their way down the long and fast Mulsanne Straight during the hours of darkness at the famous La Sarthe Le Mans circuit.
