One of three all-new MS670s entered for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1972, this example was entered for Henri Pescarolo and Graham Hill. Starting second on the grid, they would go on to score a historic victory; it was the first for Matra and it also made Hill the only driver to win the Monaco Grand Prix, Indy 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. For the 1973 season, the car was updated to MS670B specification. In this guise, it was used at the Le Mans test and then raced by a variety of drivers in the World Sports Car Championship. Henri Pescarolo and Gérard Larrousse drove it to victory in the Zeltweg 1000 km and Watkins Glen 6 Hours. The 1972 Le Mans winner was preserved in the Matra collection until it was consigned to the 2021 Artcurial La Parisienne auction by Matra owners, the Lagardière Group. Still in full running order, it estimated to sell for in excess of €4 million.
