Chassis: CSX2142
This is chassis CSX2142, which was entered by Ed Hugus in the 1963 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is one of the three Cobras originally built to 'Le Mans' specification, recognisable by the low-drag alloy hard-top. During the race the carter got pierced and the entry was eventually disqualified for replenishing oil again within 25 laps. After Le Mans the car was raced for three more years, most notably by Jo Schlesser. It was subsequently owned by a French enthusiast who raced the car for many years. In 2003, it was acquired by Frank Sytner, who had it fully restored by Simon Hadfield. In impeccable condition it was campaigned in events like the Tour Auto and the Goodwood Revival. It has since passed into the hands of a London-based Brazilian collector, who has continued to race the Le Mans Cobra, most notably winning the Tour Auto in 2013.
