the Ferrari 375mm owned and raced by Briggs Cunningham in the 1954 Le Mans, the two huge air intakes on its hood cooled the heat exchanged for the water cooled brakes


the Ferrari ran as high as sixth for drivers John Fitch and Phil Walters until a broken rocker arm slowed them down, the car eventually succumbing to a failed axle bearing. After the race, Briggs and Alfred Momo paid a visit to Enzo Ferrari to discuss the broken rocker arm. Ferrari refused to acknowledge Briggs’ assertion that a faulty part had been the main culprit in the Cunningham Ferrari’s failure to finish the race. Briggs was incredulous. It was the last business ever between the two men.
