When you think of tuners, there a certain few that will likely immediately spring to mind, Abarth, Shelby, AMG. One that may require a second pass at the ol’ memory banks is Gordini, the French tuner and often time Le Mans participant. That’s where this glorious straight eight competed for a brief time powering the Gordini Type 24S. The 2,982-cc engine produced a healthy 88.87 bhp per litre and pushed the 24S to a 6th place overall and 1st in the 3-litre class at the 1953 running of the venerated 24-heuers du Le Mans race.
Now that you know all that, Gordini may be the first tuner that, in the future, springs to mind.
