Austin-Healey 100S NOJ 393

 

The 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans would go down in history as one of the worst tragedies in the annals of motorsports.

The NOJ 393 Austin Healey, driven by Lance Macklin, swerved to avoid a Jaguar D-Type that was braking heavily for the entry to pit lane putting Macklin directly into the path of a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR driven by Pierre Leveigh. Leveigh had nowhere to go, and he struck the rear of Macklin’s car launching the Mercedes skyward, the car disintegrating, spraying spectators with debris and flaming gasoline. The accident would claim the lives of Leveigh and some 83 others, injuring 120 more.

Following the race and impoundment by French authorities, the car was  repaired and sold, changing hands several times before finding a home with a new owner in 1969, where it sat untouched until it was sold at auction for some $1.3 million dollars. NOJ 393 has recently been returned to its former glory by Steve Pike at Marsh Restoration.

This Sports Car Art Limited Edition illustration faithfully recreates NOJ 393 right down to its unique 54-spoke wheels.
