Rofgo-Collection - Zeitart - Section 3 - Mirage »

The lightweight Mirage racing cars were built by John Wyer Automotive Engineereing, also known as JWAE, at Slough in England, initially to compete in international sports car races in the colours of the Gulf Oil Corporation.

In all, from 1974 to 1978, the Mirages never finished outside of the top-ten positions at Le Mans, posting a first, two seconds, a third, a fourth, a fifth, and a tenth. Mirage race cars were the first to wear the legendary powder blue and marigold livery of Gulf Oil, the first to post race wins for Gulf Oil, and the last to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans overall for Gulf Oil.

Beside Rondeau, Mirage is one of only two independently constructed racing car marques to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans overall since the post-World War II return of the Grand Prix d’Endurance in 1949.
