When it comes to motor racing it’s all about making the rules work to your advantage.
Back in the 1950s the regulations governing the famous 24 Hours de Le Mans permitted the rebodying of standard cars.
With that in mind, a bloke named Briggs Cunningham decided to conduct a little experiment.
He built two Cadillacs for the race, streamlining one to make it more competitive, while leaving the other pretty much alone — just in case his plan failed.
In case you haven’t heard of him, Cunningham was a rich kid, sportsman and American entrepreneur, best known for winning the 1958 America’s Cup as well as for his many appearances at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.
