Le Mans Classic 2023: A beautiful TVR Tuscan LHD was in the crowd


The 100th edition of the extraordinary 24 Hours of Le Mans was held in last middle of June June. It was fantastic that after the last overall victory in 1965 a Ferrari (the 499P of Calado/Giovinazzi/Pierguidi) was again on the top step of the podium. At the end of the month it was the turn of the Le Mans Classic, an extraordinary re-enactment organized with 6 grids of historic cora cars taking turns battling for 24 hours.

but on the weekend it is a festival of gatherings with brands from all over the world. Of course, our beloved TVRs were there too. Among the many groups present was this stunning TVR Tuscan MK1 brought to the lawns of Le Mans. Besides being painted in a beautiful, gloomy and exciting black color (with black rims and leather interior) it was a beautiful left-hand drive example. So I am very happy because we have example number 68 in the TVR Tuscan left-hand drive registry (you can find it here: https://bit.ly/43mCPn9).

The French license plate of this curvaceous coupe/Targa tells us that it came from Department 73, which corresponds to Savoy.

This magnificent Gran Turismo with a 6-cylinder engine (its curvy, edgeless tail always leaves me breathless for the perfection of its shape) has a magnificent twist that makes it even more beautiful and original. In fact, please note the red TVR badge on the trunk door

Since the department is at the base of the Alps, it is easy to imagine the owner’s emotions during the fantastic “hill-climbs” behind the wheel of this masterpiece. I imagine him exiting hairpins strictly in oversteering with its tail dancing
