    Jim Hall was a badass car designer who thought so far outside the box that the people inside the box couldn’t even see him.

Some incredible footage was recently uncovered from Jaguar’s efforts at the 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans, particularly the days leading up to it when most of the circuit was still open to local traffic.
