The Saratoga Automobile Museum is excited to announce its newest consignment for the 2019 Saratoga Auto Auction the 1969 John Wyer built Gulf Mirage M2/300/03 with BRM V-12 engine. This race car is one of only three produced by John Wyer Automotive Engineering for the 1969 World Sports Car Championship.

This Gulf Mirage is the only remaining Wyer Mirage that has been returned to its original, as raced, condition. The car is a complete, fresh concours restoration with an emphasis on originality and authenticity. This car was raced during the 1969 season with David Hobbs and Mike Hailwood behind the wheel. The Mirage M2 was the most successful of the three cars that had been built.

In addition to this fully restored and racetrack ready Mirage, racing legend and former driver of this Mirage, David Hobbs will be on hand at the 2019 Saratoga Auto Auction to talk with fans about his experiences driving this piece of automotive history.
