Amedeo Gordini, an Italian by birth who began his career as a mechanic with Maserati, eventually settled in France where he joined hands with Simca and developed a number of sports cars which are all iconic. Later he got associated with Renault who finally purchased his firm and grouped it under their Racing Division.
One of them was model Gordini T 24 that he developed to compete against the Aston Martin's, Austin Healey's and Mercedes-Benz in car racing. Gordini who himself raced in the past identified three drivers who would eventually drive this car - Maurice Trintignant, Jean Behra and André Simon. The trio was labelled as ‘Three Musketeers’.
Powered by an 8-cylinder 3.0 litre engine, this car gave a power output of 225 hp with Weber made carburetors and having a 5-speed manual transmission.
At the 1953 Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe, France, this car # 35 driven by Maurice Trintignant and Harry Schell came first in the 3.0 litre class category beating an Aston Martin DB3S and an Austin-Healey 100.
