Four cars that brought home the trophy from the major international endurance races – including Le Mans, Sebring, Targa Florio, and Daytona, were discussed. They were all part of the overall quest for the World Sports Car Championship. This highly coveted prize was held by only five manufacturers from 1952 to 1973. The Ferrari 375 MM, Aston Martin DBR1, Ford GT40, and Porsche 917 were four of the cars.
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
