The 1953 Ferrari 340/375 MM, chassis 0320AM, raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, having been driven by some of the world’s most renowned drivers. It also set a record at the Carrera Panamerica at an average speed of 138 mph over 223 miles. It finished 6th that day. The record will not be broken because the Carrera Panamerica is no longer run, it was just too dangerous.
