1948 Simca Gordini T11 Fangio

Juan Manuel Fangio  drove this car in his first race in Europe – 1948 French Grand Prix.. The T11 was developed in 1944 and it was the first real single-seater racing car by Amedee Gordini. It was built around 1.1-liter four cylinder engine which produced just 75 hp in the beginning, but was boosted over the years so that by 1948 it would offer 110 hp. It was engine problems that forced Fangio to retire after 2/3 of his first Grand Prix appearance. The model is from Museo Fangio Collection.
