It was originally thought that GT40P/1075
had been a rebuild of one of the Mirages but this has now proved to be
incorrect. 1075 was a brand new car but based on the Mirage chassis with
aluminium replacing some of the steel sections. The spare wheel well was
also deleted as this semi-circular section had not been used for this
purpose since the days of the early prototypes.
1075 became the most famous and most
successful of all GT40s, winning Le Mans in 1968 and 1969.
