A decade before Carroll Shelby took his Cobras to Europe, Briggs Cunningham brought American horsepower and know-how to the 24 Hours of LeMans, where he challenged the supremacy of the great European marques on their home soil. The C-4RK was a one-of-one streamlined coupe-a LeMans special of sorts-designed with input from one of the most famous automotive aerodynamicists of all time, Dr. Wunibald Kamm. Did the C-4RK live up to the promise embodied in its aggressive bodywork? Pick up this first installment of the Stance & Speed Monograph Series to find out...
