Another significant historical note from the 2015 Le Mans 24 hours is that it marks the first time in 87 years that a car powered by a four cylinder engine has won the race and the first time ever that a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine has done so.
The 1928 race was won by the Bentley of Woolf Barnarto and Bernard Rubin.
