1949 Frazer-Nash Le Mans - Sportscar2.com -
The 1948-53 sports car was a development of the 1936-40 BMW 328, including a completely restyled body. One of the early cars was entered in the 1949 Le Mans race where it was placed third. As a result, its original name of the High Speed Competition was quickly changed to the Frazer-Nash Le Mans. In 1952, it had an outright win in the Sebring 12 Hours race. It was powered by a 2 litre, BMW OHV, straight-6 engine, with 3 Solex carbs, that developed 125 bhp at 5500 rpm and 121 ft/lbs of torque. Fitted with a 4-speed manual gearbox and with a 9:1 compression, it produced a top speed of 110 mph, and 0-60 mph in 8.8 secs. It had an aluminium body on a steel frame, weighed 670 kg, and used hydraulic drum brakes all round. 30 Le Man's were built.
