RM Monaco 2016 – 1977 Chevron B36 LMP1 Spider



This was the magnificent time in top-drawer auto racing where the wedge came to life. Sideways on track, spitting flames from their open rear ends!

It was intuitive, low-tech aero.  But race-proven and glorious to behold, then as now.

The LMP1 and SPider descriptors above are ours – the car actually competed in primarily North American Can-Am races, we believe.  But the sentiment and bleeding-edge tech certainly makes it LeMans worthy — whatever the classes were dubbed in 1977.
