Henri Pescarolo ran 57 Formula One races and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans as a driver four times for Matra-Simca and Porsche. He founded Pescarolo Sport in 2000 to race (and later build) Le Mans prototype racers. And for a while, their Courage chassis were the second-best LMP1 cars on the grid after the all-too-dominant Audis.

For 2007, the team decided to try their hand with a machine of their own design. The Pescarolo 01 was built for use in both LMP1 and LMP2 categories. This particular chassis, 013, features a 3.6-liter Judd V8 that made about 510 horsepower. Outfitted in LMP2 spec, this car was used by the OAK Racing team and carries Gulf colors. It’s competition history includes:

  • 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans – 25th (with Frederic Da Rocha, Patrice Lafargue, and Andrea Barlesi)

The car has since been overhauled and now carries an estimate of $440,000-$660,000. Click here for more info.
