Dr. Simeone explained that from the mid-1930s to mid-1950s, the French passion for sports car racing led to the development of some landmark sports cars which were successful during their short history of dominance. Three French cars from the collection represented the only victories for French cars in their greatest race, Le Mans! The 1937 Bugatti Type 57G Tank, the 1936/48 Delahaye 135s/175S, and the 1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe.
