Porsche supplies the highest number of cars out of the 16 makes on the entry list with 10 962Cs. Its main rivals of that era are also down to appear in the Sarthe including two Lancia LC2s, two Jaguars, an XJR-12 and an XJR 16, a Mercedes C11 and a Nissan R90 CK – the most powerful car seen in the Sarthe with a power output of 1128 bhp!

The final evolution of that generation of sports prototypes, the Sport 3.5-litre machines, is represented by a Gebhardt C91, a very rare Lola T92/10, and above all a Peugeot 905 celebrating the 25th anniversary of its Le Mans debut this year.
