Their cars were quite a big success but the cars never came to their full potential as the duo split in 1961. In 1963 Charles Deutsch designed a race car for Panhard, dubbed CD, for sportscar races like the famous Le Mans 24 Hours.

The car featured here is the final incarnation of the CD as raced in the 1967 Le Mans 24 hours. The CD 66 C was powered by a Peugeot 204 engine modified by Moteur Moderne. The bodywork was extremely efficient (a drag coefficient of only 0.13 cd) allowing for top speeds of 250 km/h with only 108 bhp on tap. Unfortunately neither of the two cars made it past the twelve hour mark in the 1967 Le Mans race. It was the last Le Mans entry for Panhard.
