QUOTE (cheater @ 24 Jun 2004, 19:32)The three T57G Bugatti "Tanks" were actually built in 1936, and one of them won Le Mans in 1937. I assume the MMK model is of the 1937 winner.

See this link:

As you can see the MMK liverie has the number 1 on it, so it's the 1939 winner with Jean-Pierre Wimille and Pierre Veyron at the wheels, that of 1937 had numeber 2 with Jean-Pierre Wimille, Robert Benoist, and one that has not driven it: another spanish driver on Le Mans history, Genaro Leoz Abad.

There was also a no. 1 T57G at the 1937 race, driven by Labric and Veyron, but since the 1937 car numbers were superimposed on circles of some dark color, you are undoubtedly correct about the MMK model being of the 1939 winner. Photos do show the 1939 race numbers on white (or another very light color) circles.

Here's a link with pictures of both 1937 Tanks and the 1939 winner:
