Description: The sensational Francois Cevert at the wheel of an M670.
At LeMans in 1973, Cevert set the fastest race lap ... at dusk! He was, without a doubt, the fastest sports car driver in the world during this time in racing history. No other driver could match his speed or skill in an endurance car.

He was well on his way to becoming France's first World Driving Champion in Formula 1 when he was killed tragically at Watkins Glen in 1973 practicing for the US Grand Prix. He was to be Stewart's heir apparent and #1 at Tyrrell the following year. A real tragedy.
