Cunningham Sports Cars: American Racing Legends 1951-1955
Time magazine cover hero and America's Cup yachtsman Briggs Cunningham cut a wide swathe through the post-war sports-racing scene with his magnificent Cunningham sports cars. He burst into view in 1951 with his Chrysler-powered C-2 sports-racers. Following up with the CAR, C-5R and C-6R, Cunningham's sports-racers performed well at Le Mans and were all but unbeatable in American racing.
Fabulous unpublished pictures from the Ludvigsen Library show these great cars on the track and at rest. They carried the American flag at home and abroad with style and panache.
