HISTORY:
In 1937, the Alsatian firm did not hide its ambitions by coming back to Le Mans with its “Tanks” and two cars where entered by the Labric Team. This car was driven by Roger Labric andPierre Veyron.
The 57G sports chassis were pulled down and cut (wheelbase = 2980mm). The body of the car was made of aluminium in only one part, streamlining the entire machine. The use of the type 59 wheels improved the cooling system and facilitated the brake lining exchange. The famous radiator looked like a horse-shoe under the fairing but was not visible with the bonnet closed. Each was fitted with an eight cylinder engine in line of 3257cc, double camshaft heading in “competition” version with a dry crankcase and ignition by central magneto.
At first glance the two cars looked identical. But the fronts were different; the front grid is opened on the front headlamp on car #2, and the cut of the front hoods were different, this detail was underlined by the different colour on car #1.
