The Matra M620

Matra's second prototype.
The engine was a 2 litre version of the british BRM 1500cc V8 (which powered Graham Hill towards his Formula-One World-Champion title in 1962).

The first public presentation of the M620-BRM on a race-track, was on the Mans circuit in April 1966. However, the car was not entered in the endurance races with expectations of spectacular results, but rather as a kind of test bench for development. This way, 1966 was the year where Matra got accustomed with endurance racing.
