Johnny Herbert signed Mazda 787B, Le Mans winner, 1:18 Box Set
It was the reliability of the rotary engined Mazda 787B rather than outright pace that eventually paid off in 1991 when a 787B driven by Johnny Herbert, Volker Weidler, and Bertrand Gachot secured victory in the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans. It remains the only victory by a car not using a reciprocating engine design, a record likely to never be repeated due to regulation changes.
Unlike the other two factory cars No. 55 had an outrageous bright orange and green scheme in honour of a main sponsor, Renown, a Japanese clothing manufacturer that had been supporting the team
since 1988 by providing all their clothing for the events.
Our 'quick-silver' box set, comes complete in a branded presentation box containing a 1/18 scale Mazda 787B model on a base hand signed by Johnny Herbert, Certificate of Authenticity.
The perfect gift or addition to your quality collection.
