Here we have the ex works Jupiter R1. A unique opportunity to buy a piece of English le Mans history.
The car won its class at le Mans in 1952 but the works Jupiter cars also won in 1950 and 1951(driven by the same drivers).
Driven by Marcel Becquart and Gordon Wilkins.
Originally three works cars were built and this is the sole survivor having been found in pieces in Bradford where the factory was based. Totally rebuilt over the years with original chassis and body. Lots of pictures/ paperwork showing the rebuild. The car has competed in Goodwood revival, two le Mans legends and is also eligible for Monaco – the Jupiter having competed in the sports car race there we think finishing 10th and beating many more powerful cars.
Year : 1952
Price : £245.000
