About Le Mans Technology (LMT)

Le Mans Technology (LMT) is a low level production supercar company dedicated to producing the most exciting representation of a Le Mans racing car for the road. Their sole model, the ''C Homage'', is based on the legendary Porsche 962 Group C racing car, which is one of the most successful racing cars of all time.

The C Homage

The C Homage is best described as being a Porsche 962 with a number plate. It really is that close to a Le Mans car. Although the full specifications are shown below, it would be appropriate to say that the C Homage uses a 3.0 liter flat 6 cylinder engine, which is a close replica of the 962's racing engine, abeit being re-developed for more modern law restrictions, such as exhaust emissions, and exhaust noise levels. The main reason why the C Homage is such a desirable car is that it offers the same level of (or higher) performance as a Bugatti Veyron, plus it is far superior around corners and particularly, around the track. Another notable asset of the C Homage is that it is the most expensive production car ever made, at £2,050,000 each, which makes it a Guiness world record holder.
