It is quite easy to ask “what if?” but it is another thing entirely to come up with a tangible answer. That’s precisely what Ecurie Ecosse CEO Alasdair McCaig did when he partnered with the transport sector design experts at Design Q and the sports car manufacturer Building the Legend to bring the Ecurie Ecosse LM69 to life.
McCaig assumed leadership of Ecurie Ecosse after his father, Hugh McCaig, reformed the legendary British racing team in the early 1980s. But the history of Ecurie Ecosse dates back to the 1950s, when the organization secured back-to-back victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
What Ecurie Ecosse failed to do, however, is to produce a car to race at Le Mans during the late 1960s. If they had, it would have undoubtedly looked and driven a lot like the Ecurie Ecosse LM69.
This recently-completed racecar uses era-appropriate design elements and component parts to recreate a true Le Mans late-60s vibe. It’s powered by a custom quad-cam 5.0L V12 engine and adheres to all 1969 FIA racing standards. Only 25 of these models will be built, making them as rare as the back-to-back victories at Le Mans that put Ecurie Ecosse on the map.
