Michele Baccoli's Bugatti T13 takes a pit stop during the "VIII Coupe des Voiturettes" held on 29 August, 1920 at the Circuit de la Sarthe Circuit (Le Mans). Baccoli finished fifth. Note that only the driver and the riding mechanic were allowed to work on the car, and the trusting official watching on is standing ion the racetrack. Roads were largely unpaved, as were racetracks.

Many of you have a profound love for cars. For such men, a car is vanity, pride, and ego. Even a single scratch or a dent on the vehicle is enough to induce fury, for their attachment to the vehicle is very strong. If you're among them, open your eyes, brace yourselves for the following awesome car. The Sleeper, aka the 1949 Merc 'Lead Sled', is part of the rather "unaffordable" category.
