"Well, there's the Le Mans winner, the Daytona winner and the world championship winner here, so there's major provenance," Lopez says. "From a collecting point of view, look at Cobra prices today. This is the most successful American race car of the Nineties and Noughties.
From a personal point of view, they're incredibly good fun to drive. Huge torque, very fast, easy to maintain. They were cheap, though they're starting to go up in value. The fate of many racing cars is that nobody wants them. They'll never be a 250 GTO, but owning a car that's won Le Mans... not many cars can claim that."
