UPDATE: Car now removed from the website.

 

 

Description clearly states its a Le Mans copy, so seller not trying to fool anyone. Shame the dashboard isnt original but otherwise seems very together.

Heres the description translation via Google Translate:

description PEERLESS GT2 LeMans Special, built in 1959 Phase2

Information report OldtimerMarkt issue October 2013, pages 72-77

Manufacturer: Peerless Cars Limited, Slough, Buckinghamshire England. The breakthrough for Peerless was a 16th place in the 24h LeMans in 1959, the number of vehicles built is around 300, with my vehicle number 290 being one of the last. As far as I know, the only roadworthy copy in Germany, around 30 vehicles are still in existence worldwide. Peerless technology components from Triumph, i.e. engine gearbox / overdrive come from the TR3. Space frame with Dedion rear axle. In phase 2 the body is bolted to the frame. Entitled to start at racing events like the LeMans Classics! Due to the rarity of the vehicle, you can take part in almost all large and important vintage car rallies such as Silvretta Classic, Ennstal Classic and many more. start immediately. Many organizers are now rejecting "dozen items" because of the oversupply. With this vehicle you will definitely not have such problems!

I have asked them to correct the date Peerless entered Lemans. No

The Bonhams Ph1 was LHD, this one is RHD.

Just like the nice yellow RHD Ph1 on Carsandclassic, which is for sale for about half a year at 35.000 pound.

Think the market for LHD cars is much bigger.
