We’re excited for you to experience The Brumos Collection, immerse yourself in our interactive exhibits and learn more about the history and significance of these incredible machines.
From the main collection to interactive experiences that take you back to the early days of automotive design, racing and the drivers themselves, this is a walk through automotive and racing lore you won’t soon forget.
Between 1912 and 1914, Peugeot made a handful of racecars with the world’s first dual overhead camshaft engines—the ancestors of all high-performance engines to follow. In the early 20th century, Peugeot racers ruled the scene with some of the sport’s greatest drivers: Jules Goux, the first foreigner to win the Indy 500, Georges Boillot, first winner of the French Grand Prix and Italian driving ace Paolo Zuccarelli. Of those early Peugeots, only two remain. This is one of them.
The first 917/10 was produced in 1971. This Can-Am Racer had a twin-turbocharged engine capable of 200+mph speeds at 1100 hp. Peter Gregg raced the car to a 9th place finish in the 1972 Can-Am Championship, followed by Hurley Haywood’s 3rd place finish in the 1973 Can-Am Series season. The Brumos Porsche 917-10 was the first race car to carry what has now become the iconic and recognizable white, red and blue livery with the famous Brumos “sweeps”.
