Mazda 787B #55 Winner 24h LeMans 1991 Weidler, Herbert, Gachot, 1:18 case signed.
Mazda's 787B, powered with a rotary model 26B Wankel engine, won in 1991, overcoming reliability issues in the older manufacturer cars. It was the first Japanese manufacturer to win Le Mans, as well as the only non-piston engine car to ever win. It won against considerable opposition from factory-entered Mercedes, Jaguar and the new 3.5L Peugeot cars; and from privately entered Porsche 962s, still competitive after 6 years.
