Chassis: HU1
The first T280 built, chassis HU01 was the first of two examples initially delivered to Ecurie Bonnier. It was raced in the World Championship by a wide variety of drivers. The highlight of the car's career was a victory in the Le Mans 4 Hours in the hands of Jo Bonnier and Hughes de Fierlant. It was subsequently sold to Daniel Rouveyran, who brought the car back to Le Mans in 1973 but a wheel failure ended the race early. After a spell in the United States, it returned to Europe where it was meticulously restored by Yvan Mahe. Finished in the original Bonnier colours, it is seen here at two CER races in 2011.
